Rolling Stone predicts mayhem in the streets at Charlotte DNC convention

Rolling Stone ace reporter Tim Dickinson posted a story this morning with dire predictions for mayhem when the Democratic National Convention comes to Charlotte next year.

His opening paragraph: "By all rights, 2012 ought to be a cakewalk for the GOP. Unemployment is pandemic. Riot police are confronting protesters in public squares and on college campuses.

"In an epic fail of foresight, the Democratic convention will be held in one of the world's banking centers, Charlotte, North Carolina – setting the stage for violent clashes not seen since the streets of Chicago, 1968. "I hope they keep this up," gloated Grover Norquist, one of the Republican Party's most influential strategists. "Hippies elected Nixon. Occupy Wall Street will beat Obama."
