Proper Townhall Togs

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 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.

Perhaps we just need to dress like the homeless to be heard.....I mean while we are at it, why not reek of vodka and have a missing shoe, slurred speech, and talk in spanish too? Then they would listen to us.

I could wear my typical weekend yardwork outfit except you'd need to substitute beer for vodka and I usually have both flip flops on. Other than that mi espanol es muy not good.
