Joined at the Hip

November 3rd, 2008 by flanews

Whoever said imitation is the highest form of flattery wasnt banking on this. Two Progress Florida members latched themselves together and wore President George Bush and Senator John McCain masks. The demonstration is part of the groups, Joined at the Hip campaign. The group says they just want to remind people that McCain voted with President Bush 90 percent of the time. Progress Florida Spokesman Damien Filer said youve got to constantly think of new ways to reach the voters.

This election there is unprecedented attention being paid, unprecedented amounts of money being spent, so the bottom line is how do you break through? So the goal here was how to do something creative and try to get peoples attention one more time hopefully before they head to the polls, said Filer.

The duo marched in front of the state capitol for about 30 minutes and got several honks and waves and of course a few glares.
