Hootch

Thanks for posting your letter.

We plagiarized your letter and added a few of our comments in a letter to Oregon's Democratic Senator and a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Below is our version:


November 17, 2003

Dear Senator Wyden,

Recently our son returned from combat operations in Afghanistan. He piloted an air ambulance Blackhawk helicopter, and risked his life several times to save the lives of our wounded soldiers.

We are outraged about the “Memogate” situation that involves the Democrats on the Senate Intelligence committee. As one of our Senators from Oregon, and especially since you are a Democrat on the Intelligence Committee we urge you to identify the author of this memo and if you are involved urge you to voluntarily resign your position on this committee as a minimum.

We have grown increasingly uncomfortable with the growing perception that the Democrats on the Intelligence Committee have chosen a path to politicize the Senate Intelligence Committee and try to use their influence there to go after President Bush. We can understand and respect the minority’s desire to make sure that things are being investigated regarding intelligence. It is for that reason that we believed, initially, that the entire issue of the “leaked memo” was probably a lot of hot air.

Over the weekend we finally read the memo and were shocked. To think that someone of any party would try to undermine the President by the use of such a critically important committee is terrible. As we have read more about this we have become more enraged that Democrats that have addressed the memo issue have tried to attack the messenger instead of addressing the greater concern.

Senator Wyden, in order to preserve the integrity of the committee the author of this memo must be identified and removed from the committee. In the words of Senator Zell Miller, “If this isn’t treason, it is certainly a first cousin”.

Don’t forget the oath of office you have taken.

Cordially,

B-Cause and wife

We copied several local newspapers, as well as key Oregon Republicans plus several members of our personal network.

Thanks again Hootch

Oh, I didn't mean that you should take it down. I was just looking at your site and it leaped out at me. I don't expect anyone to seek my approval for anything, or take any action because of anything I say. Whatever floats your boat, man. It's your website.

That thing really is hideous, though :)

Tennessee ping......

Send a note to Senator Alexander here

Send a note to Senator Frist  here

Ask them to carefully consider the actions of Senator Rockefeller and then support the call for his resignation.

Excellent suggestion Bump...

Although, if using IE, for example, you can do so automatically by choosing the "File|Send|Link by email" option in the interim... :0)

I emailed my democrat mom with this, earlier this morning. Of course, she hadn't heard about it up to this point. And why should she have? She gets all her news from TV... She's not real happy about it, either.

We need to wake up America, and this is just one way of doing it - a person at a time...

Hear! Hear!

Dio, I heard the following quote from Rush today: “Democrats think that minority judicial nominees are 'dangerous,' and they've put it in writing. Nobody is making a big deal out of this except me.”

I believe he said it came from Sen. Dick Durbin or was to Sen. Durbin. Do you know what he is talking about.
