Time for a town meeting

Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN) made what most would consider a remark of bipartisan comity, but how will it play back home?
Out-party politicians have long had to deal with conspiracy theorists on their side — the people who think that the Clintons killed Vince Foster or that the Bush administration helped orchestrate the Sept. 11 attacks.

“Twenty-five percent of my people believe the Pentagon and Rumsfeld were responsible for taking the twin towers down,” said Rep. Collin Peterson, a Democrat who represents a conservative Republican district in Minnesota. “That’s why I don’t do town meetings.”
If you can't handle a town meeting you shouldn't be in Congress.
