Your Own Personal Town Hall Meeting (genghis)

Tired of having to charge up the Hoveround? Then heading out the door only to roll around in the midst of one of those angry, sweaty, torch-bearing mobs with the ominous armbands tarring and feathering various elected officials over “health care reform?” No problem! We’ve gotcha covered! Or as this article proclaims:

“Coming to Your Door – The Great Health Care Debate”

”The debate over health care reform could soon be coming to your door. The arguments of how much we need and whether we need it hit the streets of Western Washington this weekend as the two sides of this debate took very different approaches to promote their arguments. A large group against any government-run health plan lined a Seattle street staging a large rally, while a group in support of president Obama's plan took the one-on-one approach, knocking on people's doors in 14 cities. In Burien, volunteers with Organizing for America canvassed neighborhoods with petitions and packets of information in hand. Dustin Lambrow said, "We're asking folks to sign onto the president's principals (sp. – Ed.) and then to make a care health insurance reform." Claire Acey took her 12-year-old daughter Kristina with her to knock on doors. "Well, can I put your name down as a supporter at least then?" she said to the occupant of one home. "Sure. We've got a list of people in the neighborhood. If you're in support, that'd be great."

So just remember: if you hear a knock on your door this weekend that interrupts that re-run of “Matlock” or “The Golden Girls,” you might consider actually answering it instead of assuming it’s the Jehovah’s Witnesses or that swarthy, gypsy-looking guy who keeps coming around offering to re-pave your driveway.

”Oh hai! I'm a concerned volunteer and I'm here to help!”

Note to Gheyb: You stick with posts regarding obscure 19th century maritime laws and I’ll stick with kittehs. Deal?
