Today on Tommy T’s Obsession With The Freeperati – Town Brawl edition

Good Monday morning, gentle people!

As the Freeperati contract away from reality like a slug from salt and retreat into their shrinking fantasy world where everybody thinks just like they do, and nothing’s really been right in this country since Leave It To Beaver, it just gets weirder and weirder.

The insularity of this group has reached astounding new heights of late.
They used to proudly take every chance to proclaim that they only listed to or read “conservative”-approved news and opinion.
These days, that’s just taken as read.

Lately, (as your humble narrator has observed here) even that’s not enough.
LGF, FOX, the RNC, all the old standbys seem to be out to get them, and no slight (real or imagined) goes unnoticed.
As the crazy contracts into a tighter and tighter ball, I’m beginning to wonder if there isn’t something in the “Peak Wingnut” theory after all.

And this singularity of stupid is planning a road trip.
I expect lights to be snuffed out in several towns when the kook caravan rolls through, sucking the intelligence out of the air as they drive through, encased in their own little bubble of dumbassery.

But in the meantime, let’s suit up and open the first drum of mental sludge marked:
“We’re all Saul Alinsky now!”

From a memo re. “best practices” for infiltrating and disrupting town hall meetings on health care reform and energy policy:

• Artificially Inflate Your Numbers: “Spread out in the hall and try to
be in the front half. The objective is to put the Rep on the defensive
with your questions and follow-up. The Rep should be made to feel that
a majority, and if not, a significant portion of at least the audience,
opposes the socialist agenda of Washington.”

• Be Disruptive
Early And Often: “You need to rock-the-boat early in the Rep’s
presentation, Watch for an opportunity to yell out and challenge the
Rep’s statements early.”

• Try To “Rattle Him,” Not Have An
Intelligent Debate: “The goal is to rattle him, get him off his
prepared script and agenda. If he says something outrageous, stand up
and shout out and sit right back down. Look for these opportunities
before he even takes questions.”

probably not too hard to “rattle ‘em” since it
is impossible to defend the indefensible.Liberals cannot debate when
the playing field is level. They loose(sic).

(Liberals, Socialist, DemocRATS, all touchy, feely, mind numbed robots, useless idiots all!!!)

Unintentional irony alert!
“el_texicano” probably meant to say “Liberals cannot debate when I’m spraying spittle in their faces and shrieking ‘DON’T KILL MY GRANDMA!!’ at the top of my lungs.”

Theyare just setting the stage for Dems to
claim that the meetings are being hijacked by extremists and stooges of
the insurance companies while real Americans want Obamacare. Liberal
