Brewtown Politico

Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Our fearless leader is in town today to push his Social Security overhaul. Don't be fooled if you think this is a real town meeting open to all who wish to learn and ask questions of the president.

At one of these meetings in Denver, three people were ejected simply because of an anti-war bumper sticker on their car. Initial reports stated it was the Secret Service, but as it turns out it was Republican staffers doing the dirty work of filtering the crowd so they'd play nice.

The Daily Show recently did a piece examining the differences between the president's town hall meetings, and ones in Britain. It's hilarious but also saddening when you consider how much more ability Britons have to question their country's leaders directly.
