Columbus, OH comes through again

Yahoo news is carry a story about John Kerry being heckled during one of his stops in my old hometown of Columbus, OH

Four days before he makes a crucial speech at the national Democratic convention in Boston, the Kerry bandwagon rolled into a suburb of Columbus, Ohio, for a "front porch" rally at the home of Jessie and Janet Aitkins.

The carefully choreographed event was gatecrashed by a vocal group of local Republican residents brandishing placards in support of President George W. Bush (news - web sites) and chanting "flip-flop" Kerry -- echoing Republican criticisms of Kerry's Senate voting record.

Apparently, he spoke at a church there as well and an older gentleman was asked to leave for calling Kerry a big phony.

*Sniff sniff* My old hometown is doing me proud!
