Get your schlong OUT of my FACE!

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

This pretty much captures the point I was trying to make. The naked bike riders are motivated by the same motives as the bible thumpers and the bloodied fetus sign wavers. Those open carry guys were also waving their "schlongs" in Madison's face.

I was not offended by the naked bike riders. (Though I was definitely grossed out.) I just find their behavior to be obnoxious.

The difference between the bible thumpers and the bloodied fetus sign wavers compared to the naked bike riders is that the former probably believe they are changing minds and saving souls. The naked bike riders are just being smug and knowingly undermining any progressive position they might support.

I voted against Walker on June 5th, but the responses my post has received here helps me to better understand why Madison has lost the rest of the state.

But as we know, most of you don't really care.

Like so many anti Madison screeds, that is total BS. The naked bike rides are not a Madison thing but an international thing- they do it not just all over the US, but all over the world.

Yes, and how did that work for us on June 5th?

It might be vicariously fun for some of you to see some twit dump a beer on the head of a Republican office holder but the rest of Wisconsin was deeply offended. I might add, rightfully so.

This was not an "anti Madison" screed. I think most of the Madisonians confronted with the naked bike idiots were annoyed. Doubly so if they were with their children.

Open carry is a state-wide "thing," but the open carry guys at Culvers were still assholes.

Another back-in-the-day story. Naked bike rides are not that uncommon, but they used to be more spontaneous. Hippie housing coops and soft drug consumption sometimes led to a bike ride down State Street in the buff. I remember an article about Dave Cooper, police chief at the time who witnessed one. He said something about this being Madison and gave a chuckle.

But their bods were probably more alluring than those who recently road the ride. Could be some of the same bicyclists from the good ol days.

From what I saw, it was six schlongs for every tit. This is telling.

The radical left has a long problem of being dominated by men who are quick to embrace ultra-macho in-your-face tactics.

Oh no they weren't. Maybe you ought to listen to the audio tapes.
By the police own admissions, they weren't bothering anyone. The only assholes were one or two out of the half-dozen cops who showed up. Look where it got them. The city paid cold hard cash and learned a lesson. A number of lessons, actually. And undoubtedly it cost more on top to provide proper training to the department.

Find another dead horse to beat.

One of the lessons of June 5 is that we need to be more strategic, less "do it if it feels good," and try to identify who our potential allies are and try not to offend them right out of the chute.

I.e., don't wave your schlong in their faces just because they are the people you normally like to offend. That is so sophomore in college comicbook radicalism.

And the women who participated were employing an ultra-macho tactic? I'm not sure I understand your complaint... not enough tits? Is that it? Where the topless marches to keep women from being arrested at BB Clarke Beach ultra-macho tactics too?

Is public breastfeeding offensive to you?

Conservatives used to talk about respecting local community standards. These open schlong (gun) slinging assholes were trying to offend and scare people where open carry is not the social norm.

I will grant you that, unlike the naked bike people, the open carry people were within the law. But they were still being assholes and you know it.

Were they really all schlongs? Weren't some of them schlorts or schlediums?
