Robin Givhan of the WaPo deplores that the great unwashed are not better dressed. In the process, she accuses Town Hall meeting attendees of turning “lawmakers into punching bags”:
It seems safe to say that of the hundreds of thousands of style guides currently for sale on Amazon, not one of the didactic, shop-your-closet authors was prescient enough to outline the appropriate attire for those public occasions when good citizens decide to behave like raving lunatics and turn lawmakers into punching bags.
While the elected representatives have been yelled at, the punches have been coming to the protesters:
Gateway Pundit reports that handicapped woman with a walker cries as she tells how union members pushed her out her seat at a town hall. He also posts on other attacks including the beating on Kenneth Gladney, a 38-year-old conservative activist from St. Louis.
But hey, Givhan’s concerned about what to wear.
