A favor to ask you all . . . .
Thank you all for showing up en mass at Ron Klein’s office this afternoon to protest the vote on the Health Care bill later this week. We easily outnumbered the Pro-Bama’s by 3 to 1, and we out classed them with our home-made signs (rather than their pre-printed, SEIU-provided, print shop specials) as well. We even managed to get Tara Cardoso from CBS Channel 12 to cover our event for the 6 o’clock news. However, some of our folks were, shall we say, less than cordial to her and her cameraman, a nice guy I had the pleasure of chatting with for a good 5 to 10 minutes. I think it had more to do with the network they represented than it did either of them, but it was still rather unpleasant. Their story was more than fair, it was actually from our side, with no pithy segue’ from the anchor, and nothing negative. The 2 folks they interviewed from the Democratic Club were just regurgitating Obama-care talking points.
If we want them to cover more of our events locally, we should be a little more inviting when they do come out to get us on camera. Only good can come from it when they are fair.
