Allen West Hosting Town Halls Today and Friday; Nobody With a Day Job Can Go

If you've got anything you want to share with Congressman Allen West, he announced two town hall events yesterday: Today's event is at Deerfield Beach City Hall from 3 to 5 p.m., and Friday's is up in West Palm Beach, at the First Baptist Church at 1101 S. Flagler Drive, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Sorry, people with day jobs that aren't at either of those locations, but you don't get to go.

One never knows how these things will turn out -- yesterday, in fact, was the one-year anniversary of West telling a Muslim man at one of his town halls that "you attacked us." Another town hall last year had more than 500 attendees, including a small contingent of loud critics -- the Sun-Sentinel has a live blog of that event if you're curious about the kind of atmosphere at these things (hint: not friendly).

See you there.

I disagree with most of what Mr. West stands for and says, but picking the timing of his town halls as something to take issue with is flat-out wrong.  Most of our local governments have their meetings during daytime hours also.  I agree that it's inconvenient, but suggesting that there's something nefarious about Mr. West's plans doesn't do your overall position any good.  Perhaps you might want to pick your battles more wisely!  I believe that doing so will go a long way to positioning your opinion as "fair and balanced."  Just one man's opinion.

I wonder why this blog never attacked Debbie Wasserman Schultz for holding town hall meetings during the day.
