The health care town hall protestors are just "innocent patriots"! (According to a local crank)
From the comment section of the local paper:

" I really enjoy the letists calling the patriots who question the health care bill in a 'town meeting' as a mob. Sestak just had a 'town meeting' and it seems he had union people (not a mob of course), old people in wheelchairs (not a mob), leftists (oh no, never ever mob like), college students (fertile minds who would never be in a mob), and some blacks (Acorn doesn't condone mobs) ... but the innocent patriots who are tax paying citizens are part of a MOB. I'm confused! In the end it sure seems the letists are getting worried ... darn worried! "

6. They are denying others the right to be heard by their congressional representative
They are trying to stop all debate, end all conversation and disrupt the democratic process. How does that make them patriots? :shrug:

7. I suspected their ACORN hatred was cover for racism.
Thanks for clearing that up, codger.
