Awake the State! And Alan Grayson!

So! We just made an appearance at the Awake the State, anti-Rick Scott, anti-dumb-Republican event just outside of the Chamber of Commerce office on Lake Ivanhoe, and all we got was this stinkin' picture. There will be much ballyhoo in the coming moments/days about how this was just like Wisconsin and the people are rising and we're going to start a revolution and stuff, but for now there's just an impressive sense that Orlando gives a damn and is willing to stand outside on a lovely night and raise its voice. Our favorite moments: Birthday boy Scott Maxwell allowed us to wrap our entire being around his torso, somebody held a placard with our Rick Scott "Fuck/Foul" cover on it, we almost got towed for parking illegally. All told, a brilliant evening. Now if only this energy can hold until next November... Also, Grayson for president? Just look at that flag!
