Aaaahhhhhh, burn. Torch route changed?

Gavin Newsom has balls.  Not normal to teeny ones like like those sported by myself, but huge, heavy, wet balls.  San Francisco city officials, including Newsom and Police Chief Heather Fong, chose to "augment" the route prior to it's being undertaken by torch-bearers.  Predictably, despite actually having held a protest, protesters were upset the torch didn't pass by their locations.  San Francisco Supervisor and renowned douchebag Aaron Peskin said, 

-"Gavin Newsom runs San Francisco the way the premier of China runs his country - secrecy, lies, misinformation, lack of transparency and manipulating the populace.  He misled supporters and opponents of the run. People brought their families and their children, and (mayoral officials) hatched a cynical plan to please the Bush State Department and the Chinese government because of the incredible influence of money.  He did it so China can report they had a great torch run.  It's the worst kind of government - government by deceit and misinformation."

To which a legion of normals replied, in unison, "Hey, Clownpenis!  Shut the fuck up!"  That, my friends, was magical.  

Peskin, of course, is not worried about "families and their children," and any assertion on his part to the contrary is simply a lie.   

Seriously though, I feel bad for the people who brought their families to the event in hopes of seeing maybe a once-in-a-lifetime sight.  But to solely blame Fong and Newsom would be to underwhelmingly forget the primary force behind the switch; the protestors.  The protestors as a whole were upset that their organized protest was, in essence, protested.  If the point of a protest is to fuck things up to gain awareness of a point, then the city, Fong and Newsom succeeded.
