I was at lunch today and I had just emailed a couple of friends about attending tomorrow night's health care townhall sponcered by the SEIU and Rep. Kathy Castor (D) Socialism Rocks, (send your reports to firstname.lastname@example.org.) when I came across post at And So it Goes in Shreveport and may I say, "thank goodness I did!" Can you imagine had I shown up at meeting at 6:00 p.m. on a work day in the clothes I had worn to work? Why, Barbara Boxer might think that I was "too well dressed" to be a legitimate concerned citizen.
Obviously I can't show up in that cute pin striped suit I picked up at Nearly New for fear of appearing "wealthy". So I've settled on the clothes I wore this weekend to work in the yard.
I've seen video from several townhalls and Tea Parties and I don't know where Boxer was coming from. Everybody I've seen has looked, normal. But what difference does it make? Is there a handbook titled, The Activist's Guide to Proper Protest Attire?
Those on the Left have decades of experience at this "angry mob" thing; those of us on the Right are newbies. Cut us some slack if we're not up to speed on the dress code.
