The Silence of the Dem town halls

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Summer is here. Despite the "climate change" causing amazingly cold weather during spring, warm weather has finally arrived. Americans know what that means! Baseball, barbeque and:

Town Hall Meetin' and Greetin' season

We can't wait to tell our elected wonders what we think about their job performance.

That's why I was shocked when I read a story on Drudge about the amount of Democratic wannabe and actual congressmen who are canceling this summer's reality show: Politics Jerry Springer style.

After last year's grilling by those wild Nazi Astroturfers (as Pelosi referred to them), evil mongers (as Harry Reid called them) or as the rest of the world witnessed, grannies and grandpas, here are this year's meeting plans: Not so much.

Signs have gone up on venues normally used for Dem Town Halls all over the country. Here's one:


So wondering wus'up, I called. Here's what I got:

Recording from President Obama:

I, your Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama (second grade WH chorus: Hmmmm Hmmm Hmmm) welcome you to the DNC Red Phone. Please listen to instructions, as the democracy you once lived in has now shifted to the far left.

1. If you are a progressive, push one, as in you are a comrade in arms.

2. If you are a Jew calling to kvetch about my abandonment of Israel, call me back after you move home to Poland or Germany. If you're a Hollywood Hebe, make your donation check out to "Re-elect Barack Obama 2012" or "Obama's Anti-Impeachment Legal Defense Fund" - whichever comes first.

3. If you are a Black Panther with a nightstick/arms order, wait for me in the Justice Department Party room (recently renamed the "Farrakhan Room") and don't drink all the Dom Perignon before I get there.

4. If you are a senior citizen upset about HC Death Panels, Medicare cuts, higher taxes, Social Security or whatever else you pains in the a@@s - I mean, sweet elderly folks have in your addled brains, write me a nice long letter. I promise to get back to you - or your survivors - in about twenty years.

5. If you are an oil executive, I will only respond AFTER the check has cashed.

6. If you are an illegal alien, I feel your pain and will shortly abide by your reasonable request to give you and your mentor, the President of Mexico Calderon, all of the eight border states you are demanding - FREE! And as a bonus, we'll throw in Louisiana and all its wonderful beaches, marshlands and fishing industry. If you don't take Governors Brewer and Jindal, however, the deal is off.

7. If you are applying to be in my "Civilian Militia," please contact the Black Panthers in the Justice Department's new "Farrakhan Party Room" after reading Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals.

8. If you are a Democratic Candidate and wish for me to campaign for you, please hit "star" and I will be happy to appear personally, since my schedule is clear 'cause no one has called yet.

9. If you are an Islamic terrorist, don't say anything! They must read you your Miranda Rights. REMAIN SILENT! If out on bail, meet me at the Justice Department's Farrakhan Room.

10. If you are from SEIU, I LOVE YOU, TOO! XOXOXOXOX.

Have a nice hot summer. See ya at the polls. You know how to vote.


This call will be charged back to your current phone so as to help pay for all the glorious achievements of my administration and our future plans to bankrupt the country.
