Tea partiers meet Rep. Lloyd Doggett; grown-up high-level debate, intellectualism ensue

OK, I'm being sarcastic.

Rep. Lloyd Doggett - Democrat of Texas - recently made a public appearance apparently to discuss matters healthcare with his constituents. Instead of a high-level, grown-up, intellectual debate about specific policies, a group from the tea parties showed up and began chanting "just say no!" in an apparent attempt to show how dumb, childish, and much like ACORN they are.

Needless to say, this depressing display is being promoted by Glenn Reynolds, who says: "Remember, protest is patriotic!". Grow up.


I'm sure thoughtful questions were asked. But the media is focusing on the frustration expressed to pigeonhole people into a wacko fringe group and thus negate their dissent. I don't know why you don't get that?
