I'll give it to you in one word: Independents.
If House Democrats want to avoid losing 20 seats in 2010, they know they will have to fight and hold on to as many Independents as possible, period. Lose them and they will lose the House, it's just that simple, and they know it. Thus the creation here of late in the mainstream press of the local militia and Nazi memes. It's an old political trick. Fanaticize the right with a bogus militia scare, throw in a couple of swastikas and watch the Independents stream back into the fold.
So get use to this kind of scare tactics being employed by the MSM from now until elections. And remember, it's all about the Independents.

Also, one of the folks to show up with a gun was a Black Labor Union Democrat, though his politics were not clear until late in the event, when he was passing out Dem literature.
Fortunately, The total number of "nuts" at the TH meetings (so far) has been minuscule. So, even if the La Douche followers were there, they are easily identified and ZOTTED.
Nothing in the polls indicates that the presence of these "nuts" (conservative "nuts" <1%; La Douche "nuts" <10%; and MSM-fabricated "nuts" >90%) has had little, or no, effect on public opinion.
