In all this town-hall crap, are any media reminding us that Shrubby only allowed Republicans at his?
Have we seen that at all in the media, the reminder that when Shrubby was president, the only people allowed into the room whenever he did a "town hall" or question/answer session were people handpicked by his people, and sometimes had to take "oaths of loyalty" or whatever the fucking called it?

Seriously.

Not only is Obama being "protested" by people getting paid to go do it, or otherwise organized from outside those communities to come in and get disruptive, but because of Shrubby's paranoia his presidency looks like one of complete contrition and agreement from the American populace.

It's a double whammy against Obama - the statistic of artificial protesters up against a statistic of forbidden protesters.

It's like saying guy A had hit percentage of .975 and guy B had one of .001, but never mentioning that guy A used a T and a bat that was 12 inches wide and the outfield wasn't allowed to touch the ball until he was on first base, and guy B was forced to use a ruler to hit a ball pitched by a turbo jet engine and anyone in the outfield could tag him 'out' simply by shouting 'You're out!' from wherever they are.

3. Yes, and she wasn't the only one.
It's tempting to wish Obama were as much a prick as the shrub, isn't it?

5. I was more thinking about how this makes the media bias really, really obvious.

10. teabaggers like to point to Code Pink
as justification, however I seem to remember a Code Pink member being grabbed and dragged out of a republican gathering, BY THE HAIR. And the nuttery fringe laughing about it.
