Too Busy for Town Hall Meetings? We Understand

I noticed over at Muskogee Polico that there is at least one disgruntled citizen of the Second District who questions -- well, demands actually -- that Congressman Dan Boren meet with his constituents during the so-called "Summer District Work Period."

Apparently Mr. Boren has decided that he's too, too busy to actually hold town hall meetings and listen to his constituents.

Well, what did you expect?

The carpet-bagging congressman, son of former governor and senator David Boren, has spent most of his life in places other than the Second District. Sophisticated places like Seminole, Okla., Oklahoma City, and Washington, D.C. Think of the sacrifices he has made already, having to move to Muskogee, Okla., just to find a district where there was no apparent Republican quick enough to counter his "Sportsmen for Boren" B.S.

Not that I have anything against Muskogee, but how can you compare it to the likes of our nation's capital, where the Second Amendment flourishes. Oh, it doesn't. Nevermind.

Boren is one of the Rahm Emmanuel-recruited Blue Dogs who gave Nancy Pelosi the driver's seat in the House of Representatives. It's an important job, pretending to fight for constitutional, conservative values while voting 60 to 70 percent of the time with the Progressive agenda of the Democratic left. A job like that takes a lot of time and talent. You don't necessarily need to waste it actually meeting with the people who pay the bills and vote.

So Mr. Boren, we understand. Go ahead and do the work of the American people and don't worry about us little American people in your district.

We don't expect you to show up anytime soon.

Just don't expect us to show up to vote for you in November 2010.
