Oh great: they’re going to have another Health Care Town Meeting in New York this evening. But it’s not going to be a set-up like the ones Anthony Weiner tried to put over on us in Queens. This one’s in our most American borough, Staten Island, sponsored by the Staten Island Family Health Care Coalition. And from the comments on the Staten Island Advance item that announces it, this event will have all the traditional rage: “did that crowd drink the Kool Aid in NH… doesn’t our Constitution guarantee us freedoms…” “I hope the SI Family Coalition is NOT ACORN or SEIU,” “WE’RE MAD AS HELL AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE,” “if the advance is behind it it will be a liberal fraud,” “Stalin would be very impressed,” etc. It’s at 2205 Richmond Road at 7 p.m. Bring your bullhorn!
