A Town Hall Disrupter Speaks at RightOnline
PITTSBURGH – At a RightOnline panel on “Blogging 101,” PoliticsDaily writer Matt Lewis showed a video of a health care meeting held by Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) that was short-circuited by conservative protests. One of the protesters, Sonja Bliss, happened to be in the room. Bliss, who owns a courier business in Austin, Texas, explained that she had no official connection to Americans for Prosperity or Patients First. “I found out about this on Facebook,” she said.
Bliss, who donated $1,000 to John McCain’s 2008 campaign, told me that she’d grown more involved in politics this year, attending a few “Tea Party” protests, but rejected the idea that people like her are the product of corporate “astroturf.” “Our America is being taken away,” she explained.
