The first reaction was from Senator
Joe flip-flopped and came back, and I waved at Senator Slush Fund and he waved back. If you look closely at Spaze's photo, you can see Droopy waving from the passenger seat. That might have been the last time he smiled that day.
But we got a lot of other great reactions, too. Cars would honk their horns and give the thumbs up. People on the street would stop, do a double take, and then start laughing. One guy was getting out of his car as we drove by, and we both heard him say "Holy shit!" in an incredulous voice! Dozens of people took pictures of the float, even flagging us down and yelling for us to stop so they could get their cameras ready.
One or two people gave us the thumbs down, but they were frowning and looked like miserable people anyway who rarely, if ever, find humor in life.
This is the difference between the two campaigns. The Lieberman people use thuggish tactics to disrupt and annoy people. We use humor and good sportsmanship to make our points.
But then, is ANYONE surprised that Senator "Win At All Costs" wouldn't play fair?
