Gotham is Protesting Against the Joker

Rep Doggett met with constituents outside a grocery store in south Austin regarding the health care bill. Apparently the event was mostly advertised in liberal leaning local publications. He did not bring a megaphone, so hearing what he had to say was difficult. When he started making the move to leave, the crowd erupted chanting "Just say no!" His worker got the car ready to shuttle him away but the crowd surrounded it and it took a while for him to get out of the parking lot. The whole time, the "Just say no!" chant continued. It probably won't matter - from his facial expression, body language, and what was heard to come out of his mouth, he's for the the health care bill in its present form and has no openness to change on that.

The protestors are called ASTROTURF PROSTESTORS.. why? Because unlike GRASSROOTS protests that genuinely come up from the (duh) grassroots, these are PHONY protests organized by the GOP and their insurance company lobbyists.

Don't be fooled.

We need, want, and will get a national health care program
