R68 lawyer predicts "huge clash" at DNC

Don't know why it just showed up on my google alert thingie, but KHOW's insufferable Peter Boyles interviewed Ward Churchill/R68 lawyer David Lane last week. They mostly talked about the martyrdom of Carol Kreck, which who cares, but also some about the DNC. The oozing Boyles managed to agree with every one of Lane's talking points, often before he made them. Itty-bitty transcription of the good stuff:

Lane: The First Amendment is going to be severely tested--

Boyles: I agree--

Lane: During the Democratic Convention from all perspectives. The protesters are gonna want to be able to do whatever they want and the police are going to want to be doing whatever they want. So I anticipate there's going to be a huge clash--

Boyles: I do too, David--

Lane: You know, hopefully not violent [sic], but the First Amendment is going to be in play throughout the convention in the streets of

Boyles: I absolutely agree. And I think the city has set this up (dramatic pause) for failure.

Lane gone. Recreate-68 founder Glenn Spagnuolo calls in. He says protesters are marching from the Pepsi Center to Invesco for Obama's acceptance speech (which I didn't actually know), and adds that it's going to be "very difficult" to keep protesters out of the speech. Then he brings up the Pepsi Center:

Spagz: "I really hope that Obama's group comes in and does say, 'We're not going to have these cages by the Pepsi Center--

Boyles: Yeah!

Spagz: 'We're not going to weed out--

B: Yeah!

Spagz: And have only people who like us inside the Pepsi Center--

B: Yeah!

Spagz: You know, it's not that we don't like the man [Obama], but he says he's "the candidate of change," and we look at him as "the candidate we could change" (chuckles).

Update: Peter Boyles: a scintillating blend of smug, dumb and corrupt.
