I'm minded of a line from the old Dirty Harry film, 'The Enforcer'. To wit:

''Well, that's mighty white of ya.''

Here is what they are going to try to do to silence you:
1) bring more people to events than we do;
2) arrive earlier than we do and sit up front to be very visible to cameras;
3) study venue staging ahead of time to plan strategy
4) be more visible than we are and situate their signs where cameras are;
5) assign 3-5 people to approach each reporter to “shape the narrative;”
6) interrupt us and “refocus” the meeting;
7) don’t debate us and prep their side with questions;
8) repetition of their talking points is key to their strategy;
9) organize their own town hall meetings and choose a venue that is difficult for us to attend; put protesters in the back; make us submit questions and select the questions to be asked; collect all signs and leaflets that are not the ones they provided;
10) assign people to greet reporters and enter and leave the meeting with them to minimize the chances we will have to speak to the reporters.

I’ve already RSVPd for teh one on the 10th.

My House member would only hold a telephone town meeting. He read every talking point in the list, but couldn’t quite comprehend the questions he was being asked.

Still, I came away thinking he was marter than I had previously believed. i didn’t know he could read.

They're limiting how many people can attend. No standing room. Get there early. if you don't get in, the meeting needs to be FReeped.

One possible sign, likely to get attention:

OBAMA LIES, GRANNY DIES

It makes a good chant, too!

self-ping. I’m sure I’m too late for “getting in” (boy I’d love to rag on him), but I’m tempted to at least get to the Towson 1. *sigh* having a baby/toddler makes it harder. I won’t subject him to that possibly dangerous situation.
