TOWN HALLS GONE WILD: “On the eve of the August recess, members are reporting meetings that have gone terribly awry, marked by angry, sign-carrying mobs and disruptive behavior. In at least one case, a congressman has stopped holding town hall events because the situation has spiraled so far out of control.”
Hope and change! But if you cancel the town halls, the angry constituents will still find you somewhere, won’t they?

Well, remember that it was Senator Everett Dirksen who reportedly said: “When I feel the heat, I see the light.”
Keep up the good fight Conservatives, and remember the rules:
RULE 1: "Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have."
RULE 2: "Never go outside the expertise of your people."
RULE 3: "Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy."
RULE 4: "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules."
RULE 5: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon."
RULE 6: "A good tactic is one your people enjoy."
RULE 7: "A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag."
RULE 8: "Keep the pressure on. Never let up."
RULE 9: "The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself."
RULE 10: "If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive."
RULE 11: "The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative."
RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it."
If the rules are good enough for the Left they are good enough for us.
