This morning’s protest: Outside Kit Bond’s health-care ‘town-hall forum’

Democrats immediately seized on the hypocrisy of a Republican health-care forum at Children’s Mercy Hospital today. Across the country, conservatives have flocked to town hall meetings to jeer and deride Democratic policymakers because health-care reform is going to bankrupt the country and, uh, unravel all that is good about America.

Apparently, Sen. Kit Bond wasn’t interested in hearing liberal advocates assail his opposition to a public option. The Missouri Republican, along with  Senators Mitch McConnell and John McCain, came to Kansas City this morning but gave audience only to a group of invited citizens.

But that didn’t stop a small band of activists from voicing their opposition outside.
