I arrived late to the event where Congress-people Pelosi, Degette and Polis toured a health clinic for the homeless in downtown Denver. I was told most of the righties left to go on their lobbyist paid for bus tour. However, being at the end means I get to see part of the story the traditional press isn't going to cover. Aaron (fellow Squarestate blogger) decided to follow the few remaining righties as they left, so I came along. We got about a block down the street and look what happens.
Gee, these people wouldn't be staffers for Freedom Works, or any of the well funded organizations paid by the health insurance industry would they?
Here they are just before meeting their lobbyist overlords. Notice the signs? I thought it was all about healthcare. Yeah right.
Were you there? Share stories, photos, videos.
A few minutes after the spy mission it started to pour. None of my photos picked it up, but you could see the waves of rain coming down from the sky. Or, I guess you would call them wavelets. The wavelets got me really wet.
UPDATE - just heard that the lobbyist paid bus tour just stopped in Colorado Springs with 100 people. 100 people in the heart of right-wing crazy town, with a chauffeured bus, promotion by astroturf groups and now Fox News? That's a whole ball of embarrassing.
