Just received a MoveOn.org blast email ticking off the latest attacks from the anti-reform crowd:

  • Last night in Tampa, Florida, a town hall meeting erupted into violence, with the police being called to break up fist fights and shoving matches
  • A Texas Democrat was shouted down by right-wing hecklers, many of whom admitted they didn’t even live in his district
  • One North Carolina representative announced he wouldn’t be holding any town-hall meetings after his office began receiving death threats
  • And in Maryland, protesters hung a Democratic congressman in effigy to oppose health-care reform.

Not entirely trusting of the news from mid July to end of August, but that’s just me
