9/12 Health Care Protest In Chicago (PICTURES)

As the poet said, you have to fight crazy with crazy.

That's why I created DEATH-PAC (Dying and Enfeebled Against Total Healthcare PAC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the rights of for-profit organizations.

Today we attended the anti-healthcare rally in Chicago's Millenium Park. Here are some of the photos we took.

Gandalf and the Joker versus Billionaires and DEATH-PAC. It's like ... a double metaprotest. Except I think they were serious with the Gandalf and Joker thing.

Oh look, it's the Billionaires for Wealthcare! Our sister group is out in strength.

Ah, death panels. Signs like this are the "Don't Stop Believing" of political slogans. Poorly written, fantasy-based, and yet somehow still a huge hit in the Midwest.

This is the sort of photo they counsel you against when you're a teabagger-in-training.
