I Write Letters

by adam at 01:17 AM on May 28, 2004

Today I saw John McCain on two of my favorite shows - The Daily Show and Late Nite. I like Senator McCain, and after listening to him talk I felt compelled to write him. Here's my letter.

I am not your constituent. I am a lifelong liberal, and generally consider the Democratic Party to be far too conservative. Having said that, were you the nominee during the 2000 campaign I would have voted for you, not because I agree with everything you say but because I believe that you try to do the right thing - something I cannot say for many other politicians.

I understand why you must align yourself with the leader of your party - idealism without the means to put it into practice is useless, and to deprive yourself of your party's support would be to deprive the rest of us of your ability to make a difference. Still, it pains me to hear you come out in support of our current president - I don't know you, I but cannot believe that you think he is the best choice for our country.

The Vice Presidency may not be a glamorous job, but I heard you tell John Stuart that we may live in the most politically divided America in recent memory - what could do more for our country than a ticket united by the desire to do good rather than by the desire for partisan power? Can any right-headed American put the good of their party about the good of the country?

Yours Sincerely,
Wilmington, DE

Dear Adam Mo,
It's hopeless. Being Kerry's running mate is not even a possibility in his mind. Did you not see John and Tim on Meet the Press? His disinterest was pretty plain to see. All that cough medicine you've been taking has been making you delusional.

As ever,

I saw, I saw. He said the same thing to Conan last night. I still think it's a good idea.

dear adam mo,
I hope your cold is over by now. I think your 'bad samaritan' picture does nothing for you. Why not change it?

a concerned patron,
