Dear Kosters in CA-42,

Tonight's the night when corrupt developer, Deather, and U.S. Representative "Dirty" Gary Miller comes to the Nixon Library at 7 p.m. tonight to try to power himself off of the emanations of the former Congressman from Yorba Linda while baffling, bamboozling, and befuddling his constituents during a "Health Care Listening Session" in the East Room.

Some of us -- ideally many of us -- will be there.  You need tickets to get in.  We have plenty of tickets.  You supposedly need to be a constituent to enter.  We need more constituents.

Come join us.  We'll try to be there by 6:30 or so.

If you don't know your fellow Democrats in CA-42, this is a great time to meet them.  We expect that the wingnuts, from as far away as Whittier, Chino Hills, and Rancho Santa Margarita will be converging on Yorba Linda in force.  Some of them, it must be noted, may be armed.  We don't encourage any of our side to be -- but if you're a Second Amendment advocate you can being a "Guns Don't Kill People, Health Insurers Kill People" sign, which will slay people in a less illegal sense.

Koster Ron Shepston, known around these parts as CanYouBeAngryAndStillDream, who is testing the waters for another run against Miller, will be out there.  So will various leaders from throughout the district.  We will be taking pictures, honing our questions, and generally having a good old time here in the county with the largest number of Republicans in the nation.

We will, most likely, be outnumbered tonight -- Miller has surely made sure to send out the tickets to the people he wants to "listen" to -- but that means that every person who shows up makes that much more of an essential contribution to representing our cause, to not letting the other side say that our district is against a humane and rational health care system.

If you can make it, we've got plenty of tickets for you.  Just RSVP below in a comment.  I won't be online during the day, but this diary will be monitored just in case too many people say they'll come out.  (We'll solve that problem if and when it occurs, though.)

Read my diary from yesterday for more; see y'all, with your most creative signs, tonight!

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.
