Brad Johnson’s (formerly of Climate Progress, now of “Forecast the Facts”) “Rally Against Corporate Climate Deniers” was a great bit of entertainment for many at the Heartland conference yesterday. I was in session, and couldn’t attend, but I heard about the guy wearing a rubber boot on his head with the bullhorn (Vermin Supreme who ran for president and campaigned in 2012 on a platform of zombie apocalypse awareness and time travel research and he promises a free pony for every American.). I heard about this guy from Lucia, who was there and
promises has an update on her blog. I hear she has some video of the cops intervening.
It may be the “boot” was parodying the fact that Brad Johnson seems to have “gotten the boot” from the Center for American Progress/Think Progress, as he no longer seems to be associated or publishing his rants there. Maybe it was the repeated suggestions that tornadoes were retributions for a conservative voting record that did it.
This “protest” he staged is hilarious on so many levels for the sheer FAIL on display. He couldn’t even pull off a decent protest. Kid’s today are nothing like their radical parents of the 60’s. Pictures follow.

Although the “boot on the head” guy was arguably the most prominent figure at the protest, Johnson didn’t publish any individual shots of him. I wonder why? Note that the boot is visible at left in the group picture above.

One of the loudest protesters was the guy who wore a rubber boot on his head for some unexplained reason. His bullhorn was labeled “Vermin Supreme”.
A banner was evidently supposed to be dramatically unfurled, but I don’t think anyone could read it:
