My e-mail to Wendy at the Ed Schultz Show
My e-mail:
A caller just complained that electronic voting isnt being discussed. Ed replied that it just didnt resonate with the American people and he hit it as hard as anybody.

Nonsense!! Eds contribution was to say before the presidential election that all the righties have left are the voting machines. He said that repeatedly and he was correct, but after the election he refused to discuss the issue. He dropped it. Why? What is the problem???? This issue resonates more strongly than anything with the left because we know that everything that we do is fruitless unless we have honest elections.

Talk about it, Ed. Devote some air time to election fraud. Your listeners will be VERY grateful.

For the life of me I don't know why he doesn't want to talk about this in any substantial way. Maybe if we keep up the pressure...

1. Wendy's reply
Hi ___,
I'll make sure Ed sees your e-mail. He definately will address it at some point. Thanks so much for listening!
Wendy & Ed


It's nice that she sent a personal reply, but he needs to get on the ball with this now. We shall see...

2. That's awesome! Thank you for writing!
I wrote them myself recently on another topic (how Arizona was treating the Katrina evacuees who were in the Memorial Coliseum) and they wrote back a couple of times to argue with me - but when I kept responding with the facts, they finally got the idea. They do actually listen to their e-mails!

I think this is a very important topic - crucial actually. We can do all the campaigning we want and win all the votes we want, but if the machines are rigged, it's all for nothing.

I'll wait a day or two and then send an e-mail myself.

4. That's really good to hear that they ARE paying attention.
Maybe if we direct him to bradblog he'll get some ideas for interesting guests on the topic. I can't believe that we have to prompt him - the guy needs a better research team (sigh). Post their reply. Thanks!

6. He DOES need our help!
I think he wants to get the info out there but you are so right...his research team stinks. They kept asking me questions they could have found in 5 seconds on google. I felt like asking them for a paycheck! ;-)

7. That's pretty sad *shakes head*
I think the "team" probably consists of Ed, Wendy, and the engineer. Oy! LOL.

3. Ed doesn't get it yet...
he's starting to... I'll give him that. He's my neighbor btw, lives less than a mile from me and in our world (very BLUE minnesota) there is no vote fraud! There are liberals at the market, there are progressives that live next door. I wish Ed would really wake up to the world outside our blue doorways, but he often doesn't.

Maybe Wendy can kick him in the ass to wake up!

5. He's your neighbor? That's good to know.
There must be some way to use your proximity to our advantage.

I think you're right about Wendy. If anyone can get through to him about this, she's probably the one.

8. Before the election, he hit the voting machines issue very hard.
When he realized that nobody was listening (or responding), he threw in the towel.
