The Sleeping Giant

I agree with the late Mitch Hedburg: I’m against picketing, but I don’t know how to show it.

Anti-war people protested over the weekend. Pro-illegal immigrant people are protesting today. I’m tired of protests. I guess you could say I’m pro-anti-protest. Or I'm anti-pro-protest. Nonetheless, I’m organizing a protest against the protests. That’s right, a Protest protest.

But you have to watch closely. We won’t carry signs. We won’t leave the house. In fact, we won’t go anywhere. The rally cries of those angry people on TV will be drowned by our silence. Oh sure, those other protests have thousands in the streets. But our Protest protest already has millions nationwide. They choose not to engage, and by default that means they’re a part of the Protest protest. But that’s the American way. Sometimes a guy has to take a stand…and then sit down.
