Denver – Well, I’m happy to report that the anti-capitalists failed in their effort to defy gravity and levitate the U.S. Mint. The wizard hat and magic wands weren’t working.

The protest was an abysmal failure — with a crowd of about 20 profit-bashing protesters far out-numbered by press, bloggers, police, horses, and looky-loos. I was able to work unimpeded covering the pathetic showing…until the Truthers showed up for their YouTube moment.

Desperate to salvage the fizzled demonstration, 9/11 nutball Alex Jones started barking at me and attempting to make a scene and incite a riot. I should have brought my spit shield. Ick. Jim Hoft was there, along with my friends from Pajamas Media, and provided volunteer bodyguard services (thanks, guys).

Video of that coming for your viewing pleasure. Stay tuned.

I need a shower.

Update: Riot reported at the Denver City Center…Denver Post’s livecam has the scene.


Outside the Denver City Center…10:06pm Eastern/8:06pm Mountain…Founding Bloggers is on the scene. Blogger Charlie Martin is also there and reports that press and police again far outnumber protesters. Quote: “It’s the world’s most boring riot.” More from The Other McCain, who reports that a bystander told him 30 were arrested and the Sheraton Hotel is in lockdown…MSM coverage here

Riot reported at the Denver City Center… David Harsanyi: “Seattle, it’s not.”
