Leadership: Scores of congressmen and women are trying to hide from their constituents this August recess as the revolt over ObamaCare continues. If you haven't seen him or her lately, you might try your refrigerator.
They cheered when he told them to get in the faces of their opponents. Now they won't show their faces, period.
Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin of Illinois at least had the courage to show up and announce he wasn't going to show up at such events. While having at least six meetings with health care officials, Durbin has chosen not to have a single one with his constituents on the grounds that when constituents refuse to act like sheep ready to be sheared, such meetings are "not constructive."
"Let me tell you, these town hall meetings have now been orchestrated by the tea baggers and the birthers to just be a free-for-all, make a lot of noise, go on YouTube and show discord," Durbin told the Chicago Sun-Times' Lynn Sweet.
Last time we checked, the so-called birthers and Tea Party attendees were citizens of the United States whose petition of their government for redress of grievances did not automatically require a SWAT team.
Durbin did have time to go down to the state capitol of Springfield to unveil a new penny honoring Abraham Lincoln. Penny for your thoughts, senator?

Screw the representatives — I think we should put the missing Constitution on the sides of milk cartons and ask if anyone’s seen it lately...
Do not call!!! Now THAT is good!!!!!
“a union whose purple-shirted members beat up black conservative activist Kenneth Gladney as he was passing out “Don’t Tread On Me” flags at a town hall meeting”
How is this different in quality from the behavior of Hitler’s bully boys?
(I know, I know, any mention of Hitler is hyperbole. Except when it’s not.)
Maximum of two terms for all US politicians:
One term in Office
One in Prison
Find conservative candidates to run against every one of these creeps; start their campaigns now; and vote these scum out of office.
Neuter them in 2010
Vote the Rest Out in 2012
Notify them to start packing now!
I nominate Congressman Glenn “Chickensh**” Nye, D-VA. Apparently all his “events” on his web page are at Military bases, no public events were listed, but he held one with just a few donors and union thugs. It was not published, and when I called to ask if he’d have one was told no.
Here is the link to the article on Digg, if you want to digg it up:
Wouldn’t that ruin the milk?
My other senator is Roland Burris who replaced Barack Obama. Hillary is originally from here (glad she's now in New York).
I think the EPA should check the water in this state.
