Well I did it but changed the letter's language. Senators don't like getting bashed over the head. For what its worth, this is what I sent:

Senator,

I am taking the unusual (for me) step of writing to you directly, in the hope that my words just might make you stop for one moment and consider the broad implications of the "Rockefeller memo" scandal.

The memo as reported makes it perfectly clear that the activities of the Senate Select Committe for Intelligence were to be coopted in order to effect a political ambush of a wartime POTUS.

In the eyes of this citizen, the Committee's every act going forward is now compromised by the knowledge that any and every Committee action may well be tainted by partisan politics.

I can think of no other way to restore public confidence than to have a full and public airing of how widely the memo was distributed, who its author was (and his or her prompt dismissal from any Committee-related activities), and furthermore a public inquiry to find out whether partisan political electioneering is even more widespread among the Committee's members than the memo plainly reveals.

Senator, I beseech you, consider how a soldier, returning from the war theatre, will construe that document. It is critical during war, that the People and the nation's citizen-soldiers, have confidence that their elected representatives have the national interest foremost in their mind and in their work.

Failure to address these implications would only serve to spread, by association, the loss of confidence to the majority members of the Committee. The comity of the Senate is rightfully a bulwark of our Republic, but should not come at the expense of the Senate's very mission.

Very Respectfully Yours,


xxx

My letter to Senator Roberts:

Sir:

I have supported the Republican Party and Conservatism for many years, and I continue to shake my head in stunned amazement each time the minority Dims say "Boo!" and the majority GOP cowers in fear. The public put the Conservatives in charge to implement their agenda, not to chicken out at EACH and EVERY confrontation with those who would increase the grip of government on every American's life.

Republicans are the "football kicking Charlie Brown" to the Democrats "Lucy." How many times will our party end up flat on it's back? The latest is the Dims TREASONOUS plan to use the Senate Intelligence Committee as a political tool. Republicans need to DEFEND our nation! The media won't support it. The media will accuse Republicans of politicizing the issue. Fighting those who would take our freedoms is not an easy fight. Will WILL eventually find some Republican politicians who are not afraid!

The Dims will NEVER face any political backlash from the blocking of Conservative minority judges if cowardly Republicans fail to take to the airwaves with some outrage and passion.

The media calls for Republicans to "get along" with the Dims while assisting them in the political assassination of any true Conservative. The situation is coming to a head and Conservatives have little or no need for team members who are afraid to fight.

Thank you,

3 minutes of John Corzine dodging the issue and 57 minutes of how nothing happened in the Laci Paterson case today

I'm completely disgusted by both the H&C and Greta shows, and for the same reason. Who gives a flying crap about this Laci space-filling?

Here FOX has an opportunity to delve into depth on something of substance and all they do is totally waste time on this complete nonsense.

I seldom tune in to either show any more. Same with Whorealdo. FOX is becoming a subsidiary of National Inquirer and I am tuning in less and less all the time.

Don't you realize that the media is blacking out all the rhetoric by the republicans?

Don't you realize that if it is a republican scandal the medial will run it 24/7 but if it is a democratic scandal they will black it out?

That's why it needs to be rammed down their throats. Like the MEChA story. WE got that one out by blast-mailing and blast-faxing the story to the media and to the politicians.

This was a total outrage. I really liked Miller's memo too ! ...

Notice how the lamestream press totally ignores Zell, but when
Jumpin Jim Jeffords was still in the GOP, the press fell
all over themselves to report on even the slightest criticism
he might have of the GOP.
Yet they wonder why they are losing market share. Duh.

This borders on treason

No. It is treason.

Someone needs to be made an example of over this one to prevent future such subversion by the Democrats. As Zell Miller said, "heads should roll".

Fax sent to Roberts. Mail sent to Santorum and (from someone else's link) Gillespie.

Now let's bump this sucker.

"Roberts said he and other Republicans plan to spend a half-hour on the Senate floor today to protest the memo, which Roberts called a Democratic "attack plan."

After that, he said, "we'll try to rebuild some bridges. It will be difficult.""

A half hour then rebuild bridges? UNACCEPTABLE!

LOL...I loved Rockefeller, trying to shift the blame from the perpetrator(s) of the memo to whomever "stole" it out of the garbage or off a computer.

As if the game of memo stealing and leaking hasn't been around as long as governments and documents.

However you feel about Hannity, he's righ ton the money with this. This comittee oversees national security. Them turning it into a political issue is the most serious breach of trust. It's like being at war, in the middle of a battle, discovering one of your own men is giving your position away to the enemy and getting your people killed.

THANK YOU for posting this! Cool faxing it like that. Here's what I said:

Dear Senator Roberts,

As a lifelong Republican, I am OUTRAGED at the unwillingness of Republican Senators, the MAJORITY party, to take on the Democrat party on the Democrat memo outlining a political strategy to use the power and resources of the Senate Intelligence Committee as a political tool against our President, and the leader of our party.

It is of utmost importance that the Senate Intelligence Committee be impartial and bi-partisan because you deal with the security of American citizens. Senator Rockefeller and Senator Durbin, by their response to the discovery of this disgusting memo, have indicated they do not plan to act in a non-partisan manner in determining whether our nation's pre-9/11 intelligence was flawed. In fact, they seem to want to turn the smoking gun around and face it your way by implying the memo was possibly obtained in a break-in, thus suggesting we have another Watergate-type scandal.

If you do not call for an investigation by the Ethics Committee or ask Senator Rockefeller to resign from the Senate Intelligence committee, it won't be long before they'll be asking for an investigation of YOU and asking YOU to step down.

I support President Bush, his cabinet members and the Grand Old Party. If the majority party doesn't act like one, particularly on this issue (there are many, many others), it'll be the Dead Old Party in a country eventually ruled by a dictator.

Don't let this one slip under the table, Senator Roberts. You can still be one of the "nice, honorable Republicans" and be adamant and forceful at the same time. (President Reagan was adept at this.) We, The People, elected you to represent us. Please do it.

Respectfully,

I didn't use my sparkly signature in the fax, of course. :o)

Yep, Same B.S. tonight on H&C. Here is how it went down

25 minutes on Laci
25 minutes on Rosie O' Donnel
5 minutes with Alphonse D'Amato about this subject
5 minutes on what they are going to say about Laci on tomorrow's show.

He is in the center of one of the biggest potential controversies and he is one of the most prominent conservatives (Especially with Rush out) so why in Sam hell at this critical time is all he is talking about is Laci, Laci, Laci and more Laci?

Maybe a snail mail letter later.

Definitely so. E-mail is often regarded as abstract and without weight because it doesn't arrive in large bags and take up office space. For some reason twenty-thousand e-mails are regarded as an annoyance, but twenty-thousand snail-mails are regarded as a mandate.

I must be a damn weirdo cuz I don't give a rat's ass about Laci or that whole story. The only show on Fox I routinely watch is Brit's show, which I tape and watch when I get home. He didn't spend two seconds on Laci. I know people like to follow these scandalous trials, but to me it's for women. It's very womanly of Hannity to spend so much time on it. Maybe that's his demographic? I am sure Brit has more male viewers than Hannity. Anyway, I definitely agree that time spent on Laci is frivolous time and not serious at all.
