The Fourth Congressional District Democratic Committee held a dinner this evening at the Warsaw Community Center to honor Congressman Ike Skelton (D). There were approximately 250 people in attendance.

Unlike other events this week in Missouri with Democratic members of Congress there were no astroturf teabaggers trying to shout down the proceedings. The temperature was in the high nineties outside, with high humidity. Go figure.

There were two twenty-somethings hanging around outside one of the entrances. Someone mentioned that they were republican “trackers”. I went outside to take a look. They were both sheepishly trying to look nonchalant, but appeared somewhat worse for the wear due to the heat and humidity. I didn’t bother photographing them.
