Today I faxed a letter to John McCain's campaign. I've been increasingly alarmed by the hate mongering from McCain/Palin rallies and figured, what the hell? I might as well let them know my feelings:
Senator John McCain
2211 East Camelback Road
Phoenix, AZ 85016
October 10, 2008
Dear Senator McCain,
Please put an end to your campaign's negative and dishonorable tactics. I believe that only you can do this.
Your campaign seems to be deliberately trying to incite violence and hatred between Americans at a time when our nation is in peril.
Clearly this strategy is not working at all. In fact it is hurting your chances of being elected. What possible reason could you, or your campaign staff, have for continuing the lies, smears, personal attacks and inflammatory rhetoric?
If you were to publicly call a halt to this hate mongering, I believe it would actually bolster your chances. And would go a long way toward salvaging your increasingly besmirched legacy.
Amazingly, a few hours after sending this letter, I read that McCain had done just that! Now let's see Ms. Palin following suit.
It wouldn't hurt for them to keep getting letters like this. If you don't have a fax machine, there are several internet fax services that offer free 30 day trials. I'd like to see McCain lose gracefully and retire. And Palin can slink back up to Alaska to do infomercials or something.
