Help me caption this RNC 2012 photo

Found on imgur, via reddit:

I was trying to come up with a snappy headline, but the DP has some of the most creative people on the internet...

Full backstory on the photo from RobHino, and the next picture in the series below:

That's my good friend and activist mentor Jeremy Blosser! He's our head organizer here in Texas from Tarrant Co, though we don't operate top-down nor would ever refer to himself as the leader! The guy behind him is Lui LaRotta, the guy that did the grassroots press conference in Tampa.

Jeremy and his team are freaking AWESOME! I'm so glad and thankful to have been a part of it!

Here are some inside posts on this topic from Lui and Jeremy:

Lui: This was just before I knocked her arm out of the way, gave her the nastiest stare, got in between her and Jeremy. I had my back to her so I took a step back and accidentally shoved her in her seat ;) no one tried anything funny after that.

Jeremy: Since this is going crazy viral... Those that are calling for violence against this lady (when the mic wasn't even on and she was having no effect at all) or wanting to dig up her address to confront her sound like people who are part of a different r[3VOL]ution than I am. I'm just sayin'. Defend yourselves from physical aggression, sure, but that's not what's going on in that picture. I know people are angry, but when they are at their worst is the time to watch ourselves the most, lest we become that which we oppose.

For those that are asking what the heck is going on in the picture, or think that she's actually preventing me from speaking: We wanted to debate the credentials report due to the issues with Maine and others not being satisfactorily resolved by the committee. After presentation of the report, the chair asserted the previous question was ordered "without objection", despite myself and many others objecting. He then moved to the vote. At that point I started calling point of order because under House Rules, once the previous question is ordered, there's 40 minutes of debate, split between each side, and I wanted to claim the 20 minutes for the opposition. The chair didn't recognize me (or anyone else calling their own points of order). We continued to call point for order for approximately 10 minutes, during which time they similarly mishandled the rules report and nearly drove the floor to a riot. This picture would have been near the end of that time, because I only took the cowboy hat off for the Maine hat for a couple minutes near the end.

Note: the microphone was never turned on, so she was having no effect, and I don't even recall her being there. I appreciate her posing for the photo, though--it does capture the moment pretty well.

Those that know me that if she wanted me to shut up, she could've asked and I would have told her what motion to make. Then she could have tried to get them to turn her mic on.

Now! Hear from the lady holding the paper!

Joan Clendenin: A few comments about the convention itself. What you are able to see on TV is much more than we can see from the floor. Delegations are seated by state. California is spread out in three sections. My assigned seat was on an aisle next to the Texas Delegation. That group is split between the Romney and the Ron Paul folks. They, men and women, are in uniform: Western hats, shirts that replicated the Texas flag, Levi’s and cowboy boots.

The Ron Paul supporters were upset by a ruling from the podium about how the roll call of the states was to be conducted. The microphone was next to my seat and this guy and several other delegates gathered around the mike and started screaming “point of order, point of order.” This went on for a good 15 minutes and prevented me from seeing or hearing any of the speeches. The media, starved for a story, showed up, prolonging the episode. Ron Paul stood at the back of the Delegation, which only encouraged his supporters.

Then about 30 minutes before Texas was to cast its vote, the Romney folks gathered around the mike. They were a more civil bunch and we actually did a bit of joking back and forth about the Paul supporters.

I was surprised that Michigan or Massachusetts was not skipped during the roll call so their vote would put Romney over the top and make his nomination official.

Jeremy's response: She's grossly oversimplifying both the makeup of the Texas delegation and the issue itself (and the media being there didn't prolong anything, nor am I aware of Ron being in the room when this happened), but I suppose the gist of her perception isn't far off.

The next picture:

Explanation again from Rob:

Jeremy Blosser shouts 'Point of Order' as Luis LaRotta shows a motion to undo the illegitimate removal of the duly elected Maine delegation at the 2012 Republican National Convention at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Tuesday, Augustin 28, 2012.

How else are we going

to inspire people to actually revolt. This picture inspires me!

Interesting you get downvoted

Interesting you get downvoted for stating the same opinion the Doc would have.

No pass for bad entertainment

"I say let's give her a pass" Not that interesting.

It should be obvious that a lot of people involved in all this idiocy are more interested in being bad entertainers than changing anything and they will suck you in and waste your time. They are giddy over themselves for entertaining the sheeple and Ron would say we are idiots for giving it too much credibility.

Up vote

A bump to undo one of several down votes you received because I just realized that I've spent way too much time reading the comments to this thread. Thanks for pointing that out. Now, onto bigger and better things (though I'm not disparaging anyone for having a good time and a few laughs... Just not worth my time today and I don't like that people down vote others for expressing opinions).

Unlearning and self-teaching since 2008. Thanks, Dr. Paul!

Caption should read 'SHOLE'..

...placed underneath the sign top right with an arrow to 'her'.

Why the GOP lost!!!

I think that should be the snappy headline, and then send the link to all the Old Fart GOP "anyone but Obama" fanatics you know. The Old Farts didn't want to listen.

does this ballot smell like santorum to you?

Oh good i thought it was just me

Could I get you're name lady?

I plan on spray painting a Ron Paul 2012 epitaph on your gravestone. That'll be when you phogies have passed on and the young have the numbers to vote their liberties back. Oh, and trying to block someone's free speech rights places you in direct line of fire for the first to 'be gone' when the revolution takes hold. We won't need to do a damn thing except bug you so much you'll blow your own brains out, assuming you can find them up your ass!

Her name is on the paper

Her name is on the paper attached to the chair behind her!!!

Am I to believe that the hag woman in the picture believes in freedom?

...I keep trying to think of something witty and funny to say about that first picture but, all I see is an evil, ignorant and sad person attempting to derail humanity...

Participate in America's future- Research Ron Paul- Truth will Prevail! You too, will be proud one day, to be able to say: "I was a Ron Paul supporter."

I actually think you may have nailed it.

This "required" a fight.

This "required" a fight. Nobody fought back. That's why we are where we are. Nobody had the balls to even fight back. People stepping on supporters feet, knocking phones out of there hands and nobody fought back. Some even made a ridiculous connection to ghandi. Ghandi? Unbelievable.

Glad I'm in the business I'm in though. I came back from retirement when I saw what was happening and we've had a fun time of it financially. I'll PROSPER from this travesty and yet I still chose to jeapordize my entire business by publicly supporting Dr Paul. In 1968 I threw rocks. In 1971 when I was forced into the military I openly rebelled. Thruout the new milinium I've stoff outside post officed with fellow libertarians protesting on april 15th. Have taken shots publicly in my support of freedom and being libertarian. How about you?

Dyke dikes mic...

Not that I'm being judgmental, but I think that would make the best caption.

This is how the GOP lost.

Amazing character of Ron Paul supporters!

He didn't knock the false teeth out of that man-wanna-be.
