Dear John letters…

Posted on Thursday 29 June 2006

Dear John,

Last night, President Bush appeared at a big-ticket fundraiser for embattled GOP Senator Jim Talent in Missouri. Tomorrow, it’s off to Ohio to raise funds for Mike DeWine, another GOP Senator that we have a solid chance to defeat come November.

The Republicans think they can sneak President Bush and Vice President Cheney in and out of these states under cover of darkness, and that vulnerable Republican candidates will pick up GOP special interest campaign dollars — not Bush-Cheney baggage.

Make them pay a price for this most cynical of political calculations.

I urge you to do everything you can to impact these important Senate races. Let’s show the Bush fundraising machine that we mean business.


John Kerry

Like many of you, I get frequent letters from John Kerry. They’re usually about something I already know about and quickly make it to the trash folder, but sometimes there’s new information. The one above is such a letter, though my reaction was to something different from its intended purpose, I think.

Kerry’s focusing on Bush and Cheney being big dollar fund raisers while moving under the cover of darkness to avoid dragging their own unpopularity along. What struck me, however, was that Bush and Cheney are only politicians, only interested in the consolidation of power, only focused on their own agendae. Along the way, they missed the lesson about the real responsibility of governance.

Dear John,

Thanks for the reminder…
