Re: Personal letter #151 (Yesterday, as I mentioned, was #150.)
Well, well! Late night comedy, no less! Perhaps not as you might have wished. Seth Meyers treated you to a 7-minute roast. Did you watch, I wonder? He did a pretty thorough job of it, going through a good deal of your congressional history and most of your wacky ideas. All in good sport, of course.
On a different note: I made my first contribution today to the effort to unseat you. It was a modest one, but I plan to do what I can on this front. I understand that money talks, and money gets people elected. You have a good base of support. Your Democratic opposition, such as it has been in the past, has enjoyed less in the way of campaign funds. I trust that this time it will be different. I plan to do my part—and will do everything I can to persuade others to do the same.
It’s nothing personal, of course. It’s just that a significant number of your constituents want a representative who has fewer wacky ideas and a greater sense of responsibility to all the people of this district—and all the people of this country. More money means a fairer fight. And maybe, just maybe, voters will make the wiser choice next time.
