Cojones of the Day

Filed in National by on August 22, 2014

I wish this kind of thing happened enough to make this a regular feature, but today we have James Woods, Democratic Congressional candidate for AZ-5 who has been targeted by a letter-writing campaign from an anti-abortion group (National Pro-Life Alliance), trying to get him to sign some anti-abortion pledge. The Woods campaign is responding to these letters to him with his own letter explaining why he is not supporting the position of the National Pro-Life Alliance:

Also in the envelope:

Love this! No centrist mumbo jumbo here — just a clear and respectful statement of where he stands. And this is a DEMOCRAT, people, running in Arizona against a GOP incumbent. I don’t know what his chances of winning are, but here is a Democrat who isn’t pandering on this important issue.

    Can someone make sure OUR congressional delegation gets this Story?

    @Jim C.: You can’t put a condom on a limp dick.

    Glad he took the time to write back his stance adding a sense of humor!

    Love this. Gets his point across respectfully and puts the ball back in their court. I wish more Democrats had this kind of courage!

    This is superb. Are you sure this isn’t something from The Onion? Nobody this impressive lives in Arizona. This is the best thing I’ve seen since the DE state rep (Hebner?) introduced a bill mandating “Parental Consent for Sexual Intercourse.”

    In AZ, registered independents outnumber registerd R’s and D’s. In most of the races (Gov for instance) there is a primary for 6 different R’s and just 1 D. Independents can vote in the primary, but they have to fill out a form for which primary election they want to participate in. My primary ballot ( I mailed it in yesterday) had just one contested race.
