Now progressive have started to recover from being taken off guard and are counter mobilizing .

Here in Georgia we have a chance to put the brakes on the trend of our Representatives getting bumrushed by the teabagger gestapo. Congressman Hank Johnson has organized a Health Care Town Hall Monday, August 10 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Georgia Perimeter College Clarkston Campus in the Cole Auditorium/FineArtsCenter555 North Indian Creek Drive in Clarkston.

Organizing for America, along with several unions are encouraging people to attend to show support for healthcare reform and to testify for the need for reform NOW.

If any of you would like meet our own homegrown right wing nutbags over at Peach Pundit up close and personal, they seem to be getting into the act.

    I’m glad to see that people are starting to counter these idiots. Team Todd will be out of town on the 10th so we can’t make it, but you can bet your butt we will be at the one for our district on August 18th in Covington. I never miss an opportunity to tell John Linder (R-Obviously) that he is an asshat to his face, albiet in a very nice way. 7th District people go here to find out when and where your chance to tell Linder your opinion on healthcare: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=show_mesg&forum=146&topic_id=6441&mesg_id=6441
