I get some "interesting" letters. This comes from Carol Sweet.
She says I should be "ashamed". For exactly what (other than having a different political view than her) is not clear.
But Carol Sweet too often is what passes for a thoughtful liberal these days. So much for the mythical tolerant left.
Do you think, maybe — just maybe — she’s had a bad experience religiously speaking. She criticizes Sarah Palin for having five children. Anyone who has five children is "either stupid or religiously disoriented."
BTW: I have five children — all with the same wife with whom I am still happily married. Carol probably thinks that’s pretty damn kinky. Anyway, see what the mythical tolerant liberal next door sounds like. If there’s a shop steward in Las Vegas for the liberal union, you might want to keep this member away from the computer before someone from Homeland Security comes a-knockin’.
"Dear Mr. Frederick,
"As usual, I got a laugh from reading your column. No one with a brain would waste gas to go hear Salin Palin. She is a back woods, empty headed, narcissist. Anyone who has 5 children is either stupid or religiously disoriented. Now that the rally has taken place we see it was pitifully poorly attended and half the people were from out of state. Ho Hum. The hateful Republican claims of people being against health care reform are just not true. Most people want and need health care reform. Only corporate executives and politicians owned by corporations are against it. The drug and insurance companies have brought this on themselves. Insurance companies have been bleeding the honest, hard working American employee for decades. It is disgraceful and tragic. We have relatives in Canada who can’t believe our expensive and mediocre health care system. Republicans should be ashamed of their dishonest and irresponsible behavior. Democrats who opposed the bill either had religious reasons or wanted to improve the details. I am sure some of the details need to be improved. But no one was stupid enough to allow the Republicans to rant on hatefully any longer. On to other things… Ashamed, you should be ashamed.
