A Plea for Good Rallies

By Jared Wesley on Dec 3, 2008

I was heartened to hear that both sides in the current constitutional debate will be staging public events to drum up support for their causes.  Beyond a suggestion to dress warmly, I want to offer a quick blessing, and caution, to both sides as they plan to attend a series of rallies later this week.  If John McCain's recent presidential campaign offers any lessons, be wary:  keep the most ignorant among you from upstaging the event.  Cameras from the media and the opposing side will be on the lookout for acts of anger and zealotry, like burning effigies or inflammatory statements.  That's what will air on the evening news and Youtube. 

This said, best of luck to all.  Keep the messages positive, and be sure to dress in layers!
