Democrats are organizing a protest against the conservative senator


Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) tweeted about a town hall event he is holding on Wednesday where he might encounter some staunch opposition to his stand against the current healthcare reform legislation:

Had a great time visiting Charleston, on my way to Myrtle Beach for town hall on health care today.

CNN political producer Peter Hamby is reporting that a group of local Democrats are organizing a protest against the conservative senator, tweeting: ** Now why is it that MSNBC is not reporting on Democrats are ORGANIZING a protest?? Are they now low level terrorist like they claim the right wing people are or any body really that disagrees with President Obama are thought to be? 

in myrtle beach for Jim DeMint’s town hall at 11:30AM … local democrats have organized a protest.

Yesterday at a town hall with a mostly friendly crowd of 300, DeMint said “you don’t look like the mob I keep hearing about,” referring to other congressman’s rowdy health care town halls.

“Folks, I don’t want the most personal and private part of my life being controlled by the same people that ran the [Hurricane] Katrina cleanup,” DeMint’s said at yesterday’s rally in Charleston, S.C. which drew a round of applause

We wonder how that line will be received at today’s meeting.
