Show the world who the Shouters really are - whiny, scared babies.

A practical guide to fighting the Shouters.

These people:

* Have spent their lives whining until they get what they want.

* Live in fear - of everything.

* Really really like the idea of seeing themselves on the tee vee.

I think the first two points are the most important. And the way to counter them is to be blunt enough for them to understand.


If you're at one of these townhalls and one of these yahoos starts screaming, do your best impression of a crying infant. Wail until you drown out the shouters.
Bring blankies, and binkies and teddy bears. Hand them to the whiners if you can; throw them if you can't. The point being - they're throwing a collective hissy fit, and need to be treated like the unruly children they are.

They want to get on the tee vee so bad? Let the world see them for what they are.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
