"The Brooks Brothers riot is the term coined to describe the demonstration
at a meeting of election canvassers in Miami-Dade County, Florida on
November 19, 2000, during a recount of votes made during the 2000 United
States presidential election. The name refers to a traditional brand of
suits associated with conservative business dress... "
Heh! I saw that "riot" (or part of it) on TV.
The (Democratic) canvassers were about to certify the results and barred
observers/monitors/watchers from the room. The TV cameras shifted to the
hallway were thirty or so people with short hair, white shirts, and neckties
set up a ruckus. They held up their cell-phones and Mont Blanc pens in a
show of unified pique.
Several shots of the Democratic party factotums showed absolute PANIC on
their faces over the chanting going on out in the hall. There was
hand-wringing and chin-quivering. Some Negro officials turned a paler shade
from fear! The TV cameras politely declined to show those who wet their
pants. I thought I heard someone yell "Run for your lives!"
Fearing for their safety and with concern over the future of the planet, the
election officials quickly reversed their decision and allowed observers.
The folks in the hall quietly filed in, took their seats, and the official
canvass got under way.
I think maybe one pot plant was broken in the hall.
