Blog for Iowa: Congressman Tom Latham feeds fear, perpetuates falsehoods at town hall meeting

Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa

A few wingnuts knocked at the door of Tom Latham's town meeting in
Emmetsburg today, but Latham did not come out to play. One woman in a
Patriot Party t-shirt greeted arriving voters with a handout listing
ways to stockpile food for the coming disaster. It did not say what
disaster she was expecting. One man wondered how long before the
government starts implanting computer chips into our bodies. Another
wondered if the Congressman could go to the floor of the House and
read the Constitution aloud to his colleagues. Of course there were
the usual sneers at Speaker Pelosi and Senator Kennedy, but I don't
think the name Obama was mentioned by anyone. Latham deflected all
these ideas and insults without offending the people who injected
them.
