Welcome to Portland

Ed Morrisey notes this photo of a protest outside a Sarah Palin speech in Eugene, Oregon:

Palin Protesters
Nice.

Yes, that’s right: Eugene is a hate-free zone, except for the person who hopes that Sarah Palin chokes.  Nice touch with the Obama logo there, chum.  Don Surber adds:

Yes, that’s pretty liberal — harassing people who went to see someone speak.

From the Oregonian:

Rebecca McKenzie, 29, of Eugene left work at a nearby barbershop and grabbed a perch on an outdoor patio at Rockn Rodeo, a cowboy-themed bar across the street from the hotel. She watched the protests with a mix of fascination and chagrin.

“I think it’s pretty pathetic,” she said of the name-calling.

But c’mon. Palin? Eugene?

“I understand the oil and water thing,” McKenzie said. “But if you don’t approve, go home. Don’t come.”

Again, Don Surber:

That’s the actual do-your-own-thing attitude that liberals once pretended to embrace.

Well, it ain’t about that anymore, that’s for sure.
