The people have spoken, the ... conservatives?
The original, less-family-friendly quotation came from California Democrat Dick Tuck after he lost a U.S. Senate primary in 1966. This particular sentiment reflects the divide between the ever-more-left-leaning Democratic Party and the average person even here in Massachusetts.
Wednesday night the Westford Board of Selectmen voted unanimously to withdraw an article from the Town Meeting warrant calling for the town to ban the possession of virtually all modern firearms. An overflow crowd of more than 400 people showed up to let liberal Selectman Robert Jefferies know that he doesnt speak for them.
Jefferies responded by not speaking at all. He withdrew the article rather than allow the board to vote it down.
Jefferies originally pushed the anti-gun measure in the aftermath of the Newtown, Conn., massacre. He apparently assumed that the emotions of the moment would carry the day and his fellow Bay Staters would rally around his anti-gun activism.
But a funny thing happened on the way to the Moonbat Ball: Normal people showed up.

“The people have spoken...the b@stards!!”
Hope to hear that phrase uttered by many Dems over the next few months.

Sounds like a good name for the new conservative party...
No, I would say that I don't own one but I think that every American should.
