The Peasants Are Revolting
The Congresscritters are back in flyover country, and from the looks of all these clips, they're not exactly getting standing ovations. This pair of videos from Setauket, NY, is especially good.

As noted earlier today, the marks are wise to the scam, and they're not happy about it.
