Laugh or Hurl? Laugh or Hurl? I report, you decide

To the editor:

What a wonderful Sunday morning I had today. My 4-year-old, who is a huge Bush fan, brought me the newspaper very excited because of the front-page article about the Republicans and President Bush (July 11 "Young, politically active-and in support of Bush"). I am a grass-roots volunteer as well. We really can't wait to get over to the headquarters and see how we can help. We are a young family, married under 35 with two children under 5.

I am so proud of the Daily Sun for finally portraying the Republican side. I was beginning to think that the Daily Sun was another liberal paper.

Thank you for the article and our family looks forward to more like this one.

1. Heffelfinger???? Is that a REAL name?
Admittedly, my surname as pronounced sounds like a very unpleasant insect, though it is spelled differently. So I am entitled to poke fun.

A lifespan of an ice cube on a downtown PHX sidewalk at midday. ;-)

Btw, anyone who insults GreatAunt can kiss my ass! I have had a disagreement or two with her (which is below my average, har har), but I have always RESPECTED her.

Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 10:25 PM by greatauntoftriplets
I have always respected you as well, even if I have disagreed.

On edit: I have often disagreed with my guy, too. I am opinionated.

21. you're a Chicago Democrat!
I love Chicago - spent a summer there many years ago - and I love it!

I have a soft spot for Chicago Dems, no matter how much of a pinhead I can be. :-)

3. Good luck to `em...
... they'll need it--they're backing the losing horse, and voting against their own interests, besides.

4. Says it all...
"My 4-year-old, who is a huge Bush fan"

It helps to have the mentality of a 4 year old to be a Bush fan.

Geesh. The kid hangs out with his parents and likes the same things. My 5 year old son is a Padres fan, but knows nothing about baseball. He just know that when the Padres win, his mom is happy.

12. I say it LEANS Dem
It's fairly even, but we are mostly Dem, 55-45% or so. As compared to PHX, which is about .00001% Dem (the governor and maybe you).

The letters in this paper lean Dem too. That Laureen Simpson I posted a letter from the other day was shouted down with 4 letters to NONE in her defense the very next day, with TWO more today against her with STILL NONE for her. And I glance at the Repukelic every day to know that our 4 or 5 usual crackpots can't hold a candle to the HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS which infest your hellish burg.

This letter too, will be shot down, in due haste.

Ah, envy! It smells sweet, even from the rancid Sonoran Desert.
