John Deeth Blog: Loebsack Iowa City town hall

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

9:10 and after 45 mins of the UI wifi staring at me like a giant
middle finger, I gave up so I'm on the phone. (The site was moved from
the library to the UIowa campus because a bigger crowd was expected,
but the UI campus is wifi-unfriendly to the general public, you need a
university ID. A long time pet peeve.) The crowd is split but
intermixed. The Dems have preprinted Obama font signs; some say THANK
YOU. The Rs are more handmade a big banner from the gallery says "it's
not about health care, it's about govt control of your life." I count
maybe 300 people so far. Ed Flaherty has a GRASSLEY RETIRE sign. One
woman with a "Obama is not my doctor" shirt.
