• Armed Town Hall Protester is Locked, Loaded and Totally Reasonable

    Yesterday President Obama was in New Hampshire to do one of those health care town hall things, which from what I gather are rooted in the ancient Roman tradition of screaming at politicians until they voluntarily fed themselves to the lions.

    Most of the protesters in Portsmouth were content to carry signs, like the ones above, but one patriot decided to take some additional precautions

    MSNBC's cameras spotted a protester carrying a gun outside Portsmouth High School, where President Obama was about to hold a health care town hall. And, as he just told Chris Matthews on Hardball, the gun was loaded.

    "Who'd be silly enough to carry an unloaded firearm?" said the protester, William Kostric.

    Well, duh.

    That'd be like having a death panel without any guillotines.
