House Republicans and tea party protesters spent the summer and much of the fall in an awkward mating dance, with neither group too sure it wanted to embrace the other.
But they consummated the relationship over the weekend in New Yorks 23rd Congressional District, and theyll come together Thursday in Washington for a coordinated assault on the Democrats plans for health care reform.
UPDATE: Congresswoman Michele Bachmann just called me and we made arrangments for me to meet with her in her office while I'm in DC. (I want to thank my Representative Bill Posey and his staff for putting us in touch with each other.)
I'm going. Yep, we're driving north 868 miles to DC tonight for tomorrow's big rally on the Capitol Steps, followed by calls to our House representatives to let them know we will throttle them (if not by the neck, by the ballot) if they vote for this abominable health care reform bill.
It'll be a 13+ hour trip by car (not including pit stops), but hey, as I've already told some friends, the journey was long getting to Omaha Beach too.
Look out! We're coming to DC, and I've already been in touch with my rep Bill Posey, who sent out an email to us on the Space Coast earlier this morning, inviting us to his office at 2 p.m. tomorrow afternoon. We'll be there.
I wonder how many other Representatives were as open and courteous to their constituents (aka "bosses")? Patriots are bringing videocams and recorders... let's see who shows up on You Tube with their fanny sticking out from under their desk. We'll recognize them anyway... asses are asses, no matter which direction they're facing.
Other Florida patriots who are heading to DC -- Kristinn Taylor of Free Republic.com; John Vail of the Space Coast; Mabel from St. Cloud; and busloads, traincarsfull, and airplanes loaded with Floridians from Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Palm Beach, Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, and all points between. Proud to stand with 'em.
We're making history. We're coming with a message. They may think they've got us surrounded, but I am reminded of what Chesty Puller said at the Battle of the Bulge (oops!) in Korea:
"They've got us surrounded, the poor bastards!" Watch for news about Hell Raining down on the House at show producer Dave's blogsite, where he'll be posting updates as I call them in. For obvious reasons, I will not be hosting my show tonight or Thursday night. But check in on Friday when I'll be back on the radio stream to tell you all about it.
Til then... we're Eastbound and down.. loaded up and truckin, we're gonna do what they say can't be done. We got a long way to go, and a short time to get there... I'm eastbound, just watch your bandit run!
Don’t forget the torches and pitch forks!
And be sure you know the way to the Castle where the MONSTER lives!
That thirteen hours will breeze by like a dream. I’ve done a San Bernadino to Seattle (20 hours) non-stop and a Seattle to Sacramento non-stop (13 hours). Chew gum while you are driving to keep alert.
Okay...I give...What’s the command to post a picture on this EBB?
“Michele Bachmann leads ‘house call’ protest on Hill.”
I blinked my eyes several times when I saw this headline...
I thought it said “Michele OBAMA leads ‘house call’ protest on Hill.” That would be something.
I will be there - coming down on Amtrak.
The DC9-12 rally was the most exhillarating experience I've ever had.
My husband and I will be there in spirit! Go with God!!
Chew gum while you’re driving......or you might enjoy several fine Honduran or Dominican cigars along the way.
My sister will be there right by your sides. She is travelling with unknown but like people from Maine. She was very excited about hitching a ride.
I will be with her in spirit!
Wishing you all a safe trip....
New to this EBB...What’s the command to post a picture here?
That way the Blue Dogs don't have to feel compelled to vote against the wishes of their constituents.
