The Town Halls of August are a phenomenon I have NEVER seen from this nation’s silent majority. We’re used to rent a mobs, we’re used to professional protesters, we’re used to students being led to chant slogans and rally for cause celeb of the month/year.

My father is in his 70’s and he wanted to go to his Representative’s town hall. My father, who worked in a corporate job for 34 years, has voted Republican for every Presidential election in his lifetime, who also thought Iraq was a horrible idea due to the old axiom you can’t win a land war in Asia is one of these people.
