We got this postcard in the mail yesterday:
* ! * EMERGENCY MEETING * ! *
I’m not going to respond to this card, but if the Albemarle County Republicans call me, I’ll say this:
Pass the word up the food chain to the national party that the little guys are not going to help the Republicans any more until they mend their profligate big-government ways. I like what you guys are doing at the local level, but somehow the message has to get out to the party at large. So this time you’re on your own.
Medicare prescription drugs. Highway bill. Katrina pork feast. Sarbanes-Oxley. No Child Left Behind. Affirmative action upheld. The shameful imposition of steel tariffs.
Pork after pork after pork, and more Big Government to go with it. I won’t be voting for a Democrat any time soon, but the Republicans won’t “run the table” until they stop “filling the trough”.
Update: Bill Quick at Daily Pundit says:
|My advice to the Baron is that he should have replied to that aid request, and told them specifically why he wouldn’t be responding this time around. How else are they going to know?|
Bill, you’re absolutely right, and you have read my mind. I have in hand an Albemarle County Republican Committee begging letter. I’m going to cut out the little form at the bottom, put it in an envelope, and send it in with $0 and a note saying exactly why.
