Dear John--3-22-08

So, you just suspended one of your staffers because they posted video clips of Obama and Rev. Wright on the Internet. Now to be clear, these clips were verbatim passages made by the Candidate and Rev. alike. They were not fabrications, exaggerations, distortions or overstatements. At worse the clips were isolations of some very damning comments by a “rogue reverend” and a man who wants to be the Leader of the greatest nation on earth, with some comedic stuttering added for emphasis. And how does your campaign respond:

“We have been very clear on the type of campaign we intend
to run and this staffer acted in violation of our policy,"
campaign spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker said. "He has been reprimanded by campaign leadership and suspended from the campaign."

Well John, if this is the campaign you are planning to run you might as well throw in the towel right now. To be blunt, you are going to relive every gaffe, misstep and mistake you have made over the past 20 years, during the next 6 months. You are going to hear “Keating Five”, “Comprehensive Immigration Reform”, “McCain//Feingold” and Freedom of Speech in ad nauseum until your ears bleed, while your 5 years in the Hanoi Hilton will be a fading memory and little more than a rubber crutch.

John this is not Demolition Derby, Cage fighting nor Rugby. They are a day at the beach next to politics, which is a blood sport. Either Hillary or Barack will chew you up and spit you out if you pursue your course of action.

On a personal level, I don’t support you because you are not a Conservative. And the reason I won’t vote for you is because there are many out there far more qualified to be our leader, but gave it up when they tired of the Media Madness that is shaping this election. Well, when it all goes to hell, the Media needs to look no further than the mirror for the fall guy.

Just so you know, I will be keeping the quote, to send back to you when you decide to grow a sack and treat your adversary with all the respect they deserve. The Dumbplumber
