The thugs tried to intimidate one questioner by surrounding him and shouting “Shut Up!”, but for the most part it was Weiner himself who bored the attendees to death with his droning narcissistic ramblings.  He knew his plants and stuck to them as much as possible while avoiding questions from anyone he felt might have a serious issue.

A lot of folks started drifting out early, too bored and sickened to stay and listen to him.

The most common words used to describe his performance were liar and weasel.

The turnout was small and patriots predominated.  It was definitely a win for our side.

Video cameras were originally banned, but then later arrivals were able to get them in.

CBS filmed the proceedings, we’ll see if they actually broadcast anything.  They were originally banned by the Congressman but he eventually relented.  Some felt that he did it to prevent a video record of him getting bashed by constituents over his radical left wing healthcare ideas, others are more sure he just didn’t want video of his boring performance to come back to haunt him.

Now the unions appear hell bent on putting those same schmucks in charge of our healthcare.

It is a sad day for the unions in this country that they have embraced a plan that will screw everyone else in the country and, eventually, themselves.

Below the fold are the latest action alerts for Congressmen hiding from their constituents behind the unions that are in their pockets:
