Subject: from a concerned CITIZEN
I am middle aged old White Anglo Saxon Protestant -- you do not get much more Waspy than me -- I am an Episcopalian, boarding school educated, mid westerner by birth. I have a college as well as a graduate degree. I would be considered someone who would be in the social register ( if you even know what that is), belong to the type of country club that is largely considered a bastion of Republicanism (the same club that George Bush's parents belonged to) and come from a family of Republicans. And yet I am theoretically one of your so-called civic illiterates who cannot spell the word "vote" - or at least, I must - by your definition- be one because I voted for the president you so outrageously described as a committed socialist president.
I am embarassed that you were ever elected to congress in this country that I call home - in fact I am embarassed that you, along with your offensive, marginalized rhetoric, are a citizen in my America. You words are more than deeply offensive. They betray an ugly racist streak that has no place in 21st century America. God help us if you succeed in convincing one more fringe Republican that you speak anything other than deliberately inflammatory and disgusting venom.
You should be ashamed. And guess what -- I do know how to spell the word vote -- and I am proud to have voted for President Obama. Thankfully I do not know anyone whoever voted for you. And I can assure you no Republican I know would vote for anyone in your ridiculous tea party movement. They too are embarassed by your narrow minded bigotry.
Whatever you do, please do not ever have your office send me an email. I will have you blocked.
