I know we’ve had our differences. I know I’ve berrated you for allowing Christine ODonnell to ever address an audience. I’ve scorned you for voting for George Bush (twice!). I’ve scoffed, and spit on the ground as you’ve walked by to show my utter contempt. But I’m past all of that now. I’m just full of pity for you and honestly reaching out right now to see what i can do to help you.
I’ve been moving in this direction for a while because I can see you are a decent person. It know you have some whack-adoodle notions about taxation, but I think you want a better, more just, healthy, and sustainable democratic future for our state and country. I know that you have about as much in common with John Sigler and his whack job a-holes who have taken over your party as I do.
This, from Daily Kos, really brought that home for me.
“The meetings didn’t take. “[Newt] Gingrich and [Mitt] Romney understood, … and I think they even believed the evidence and understood the risk,” [MIT scientist Kerry] Emanuel says. “But they were so terrified by the extremists in their party that in the primaries they felt compelled to deny it. Which is not good leadership, good integrity. I got a low impression of them as leaders.” Throughout the Republican presidential primaries, every candidate but one—former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who was knocked out of the race at the start—questioned, denied, or outright mocked the science of climate change.
Soon after his experience in South Carolina, Emanuel changed his lifelong Republican Party registration to independent. “The idea that you could look a huge amount of evidence straight in the face and, for purely ideological reasons, deny it, is anathema to me,” he says.”
While I used to say “tough titties” that’s the party you created out of your cynical belief that you could control the idiots and Christianist maniacs, I now realize that “I told you so” isn’t going to cut it moving forward. We can’t have a two party system in which one party of openly committed to simply fucking shit up out of spite. So, I’m honestly asking – what can I do? How can i help the GOP return to some semblance of sanity and decent?
You know how to reach me. Let’s chat. I wouldn’t be much of a liberal if I didn’t think we could work things out.
PS. What the fuck were you thinking voting for George Bush for a second term? Honestly. okay- just had to say that one more time. Now I’m don’t with finger pointing. I promise. onward.
ps. I wrote this on an iPad , so sorry about the above average number of typos.
