This time, it’s not Bush’s fault.
I love the parade of the Inman Park Festival, which if it was to have a theme, it would be “The Parade of Silliness.”
It’s a procession of the colorful, first the children, then the dogs, then the Kelly’s Seed and Feed Marching Abominable Band, all in zany costumes marching, walking, and playing raucous music in a carnival style.
But my delight was disrupted by a group that was far from cute. They followed shortly after the Marching Abominable Band, that motley collection of adults who unleash their inner children. These were the grizzled and girth-widened, carrying signs that repeated all the tired slogans about the traitorous nature of the current administration, calling Bush a war criminal, calling for impeachment.
I’ve heard this so often that it’s boring.
Both my friend, who is a liberal, and I were annoyed. We don’t discuss politics, and we didn’t come out on a beautiful Saturday afternoon to hear political speech.
I imagine what Grabar saw was not nearly as exciting as this.
