Paul Ryan Shows How It’s Done

The left is desperately — desperately — trying to use GOP town halls to create Tea Party RAGE! and momentum the way the real Tea Partiers spontaneously showed up to vigorously challenge Dems last year.  It appears not to be working very well.

Even better, the Republicans are not acting like churlish teenagers their Democratic counterparts.  They are, instead, acting like this:

At the last of four events on Rep. Paul Ryan’s “listening tour” of his district Thursday, he called on a man in the front row of a high school auditorium, then instantly recognized him.

“You changed clothes!” Ryan told Steve Jozefczyk. The 54-year old salesman from Franklin, Wis., had asked Ryan several critical questions from the front row of an event six hours earlier in Waterford, when he wore a shirt and tie. In Greenfield, it was a black “Faux News” parody T-shirt.

Josefczyk admitted trying to trick Ryan into calling on him again. But Ryan listened anyway.

You know, they’re acting like adults, like elected officials, like representatives of their constituents.  Isn’t that how the whole democracy thing is supposed to work?
