Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH) had Carl Tomanelli, a retired cop, ejected from her town-hall meeting — when she finally got around to having one — for daring to question the presence of union enforcers in the crowd. On the way out, Shea-Porter taunted him by saying, “I do hope the movie theater can be a little quieter for you.” Instead, Tomanelli went to a forum hosted by Manchester Mayor Frank Guinta, where Tomanelli found a quieter and more open forum:

What a radical Tomanelli is! My goodness, no wonder Shea-Porter feared him so much! Why, he wanted to talk about er … accountability …. and how everyone should have a voice in the debate … and, er, how the “other side” has good ideas and people should listen to each other …

This is what frightened Shea-Porter? I’d say that Frank Guinta has a real opportunity to help alleviate Shea-Porter’s fears in November of next year and allow her to retire to someplace where she can just talk to herself all day long.
