The glossy postcard, printed and posted at taxpayer expense, arrived last week:
to Speak at Town Hall Discussion
on Health Care Reform
Hosted by Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA)
Tuesday, August 25, 2009
7:00PM – 9:00PM
Doors open at 6:00PM
Wanting to get a good seat (after all, nothing says reasoned policy discussion like Howard Dean and Jim Moran), I made a mental note to arrive by 6:00.
You can imagine my surprise today when a friend forwarded me an email from Brandyn Keating, Virginia State Director of Organizing for America, “a project of the Democratic National Committee”, touting Mr. Moran’s Town Hall meeting and announcing:
Arrival Time: 5:00 p.m.
“Please arrive as early as possible to the town hall, and make sure that the most powerful voices in this debate are those calling for real reform, not angrily clamoring for the status quo,” the message pleads.
I’m glad to know that we’ve got them running scared, but asking party loyalists to pack a so-called town hall meeting before constituents arrive is just plain wrong.
My fellow conservatives, please arrive by 5:00, and please spread the word to others about the Democrats’ trickery.
