Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Right-wing radio rabble rouser Rush Limbaugh may be “dreaming of riots in Denver,” but we’re dreaming of Rush in the middle of those riots, covered in pepper spray, wrists tied together with plastic police cuffs, a baggie full of Oxycontin hanging part way out of his pocket. At the moment, though Limbaugh has no plans to be here – see this week’s Message column – in the think of the Democratic National Convention.

At least the equally loud-mouthed Roseanne, who is wants to "go there and repeat the Democratic Convention from Chicago. Like, let’s just cause a bunch of trouble.“ volunteered to lead some protests in person.

C’mon Rush, get your fat ass to Denver. Then at least we’ll have a laugh riot.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
