Hot time at the Himes Town Hall meeting tonight

Himes is speaking at Town Hall right now (6:45) and being broadcast by WGCH – who knew that station was still in business? – I couldn’t get in because, when I arrived at 6, I was told by a very polite policeman that seating/standing capacity was 200 and it was already filled. Turns out the Dems sent out emails urging TeddyKare supporters to show up at 4:30 and take all the seats. Those of us with jobs – non Democrats, in other words, were to be shut out. I’m told by someone listening to the broadcast that, judging from the noise, the Dems missed some seats but what the heck, should be fun.

Update: They let in a reporter from Greenwich Time. Maybe I should have tried to crash the party as a blogging reporter?

    Shouldn’t the driver of that Jeep be driving something more fuel efficient – such as a Prius with an Obama sticker?

    So much for representative government… America is doomed.

    Jeeps are at least a decent american vee-hickle

    Chris, you don’t have a job, how come you couldn’t get there earlier? Actually one could argue that attending such meetings is ‘your job’.

    and don’t act like, here in the confines of greenwich, people don’t want to maintain the status quo.

    Yes, anon, and also so Franklin Bloomer could arrive late and still park conveniently before being escorted to his VIP seat.

    The Greenwich Time article didn’t really contain much info on what was discussed. Was there any mention of how this healthcare plan is going to be funded? I’m assuming that since have a job, my taxes will go up. Didn’t see any discussion of that point in the GT

    Obviously only Dems attended. I only see one nice car in that entire picture.
