More Rethug Hypocrisy..Gene Lyons finally said this:
> President Bush almost never appeared before audiences not pre-screened for loyalty.
> Potential dissenters were prevented from entering and were sometimes arrested
I can't FUCKING believe this isn't being reported more often given what's going on in the Town Halls.
The hypocrisy is making my head esplode (as Stephanie Miller might say)...
You make a good point.
Maybe we're not seeing what we're seeing.
These people screaming at their elected officials MIGHT be doing so because
(A) It's the first time in 8 years they've been allowed to speak and
(B) They're pretty sure Obama won't have them arrested for having an opinion.
Under Bush, wearing a t-shirt or having a bumper sticker could get you jailed.
