Rep Jared Polis (D, CO-02) swamped at not-town hall.

Expected 30 at a sidewalk coffee place: got several hundred.

A few things to note:

  • No SEIU on hand, so everything stayed peaceful.
  • CO-02 is D+11 and includes the city of Boulder.  They haven’t elected a Republican Congressman there since the 1970s.  A front line in the 2010 election wars, it isn’t.
  • Man, but there are a lot of ticked-off old people out there who want to talk about why they don’t like the way Congress is handling the health-care situation.

Shame the Speaker of the House would rather blather on about swastika-wielding mobs – hey!  She means the ticked-off old people, doesn’t she?

PS: I think that Polis may be getting it, a little.  Or at least he’s not a natural born damned fool who’d casually insult an entire voting demographic by calling them Nazi astroturfing shills.
