About Those Right-Wing Extremists (Updated and Bumped)
With a useful picture to help you spot said political terrorists. Which will be nice for congresswoman Betsy Markey (D-CO) when she finally gets around to talking to her constituents on the subject.
To be fair, I can’t say that I blame any of the Democrats--especially the freshmen or anyone in a more conservative district--who are being saddled with an increasingly unpopular set of shifting proposals on health care, who are watching opinion polls flipping on them dramatically, and who are faced with the probability of very angry voters showing up to their town hall meetings and putting them in the position of having to either say “no” to the Democratic party leadership or saying potentially saying “no” to their own re-election possibilities. I’d want to head off on a fact-finding mission, too; the Middle East seems safer for them.
Some folks--mostly deranged, right-wing extremists from what I hear--are doing their best to ensure that their representatives have a good opportunity to hear their thoughts, though. From a news release I received just a bit ago:
I know: crazy bastards. How dare they think they should have a voice in the political process?
Update: There’s an app for that. Awesome.
Is it just me or is PJTV getting better? Some of the stuff I’ve been seeing from them lately is really hitting a good note.
Now, go check out what Combs has to say about the town hall meetings. I suspect that he’s right: if you want your constituents to conduct themselves civilly, treat them with respect and be willing to listen.
