Democrat Rep. Betsy Markey, etiquette czarina

Last week, I noted that constituents in Democrat Rep. Betsy Markey’s district were so frustrated with their lack of access to her during this congressional recess that they announced plans to hold a town hall meeting with her in abstentia.

She then released a list of extremely limited-access meetings with voters — with a ceiling of 20 constituents at a time.

Denver-based blog PPC reports that Rep. Markey will be playing etiquette czarina by handing out “an abridged version of’ ‘Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior in Company and Conversation’ — attributed to George Washington but likely a simplified version of rules written by French Jesuits dating to 1595.” El Presidente at PPC writes:

We have no problem with calls for civility.

Of course, this would be a lot less risible if her call also applied to union thugs and ACORN operatives.

The limited access (aside from being AWOL for nearly half of August), however, is shameful–this in stark contrast to Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO), who held four consecutive town halls last Thursday to accommodate hundreds of constituents who showed up in Arapahoe County.

No word on whether Markey will bring kiddie human shields to protect her, too.
