203. I missed this thread before, thanks to those who
bumped it back up.

Chris, I know others have already thanked you for your courage and kind words. And I know that others have asked you to send our best wishes and thanks to your mom and your stepdad. But please allow me to pile on the praise and gratitude to you and your family, and ask that you pass this along to your stepdad:

John, thank you so much for all you've offered, all you've sacrificed and all you've taught us about the way a true statesman behaves. You have my undying gratitude for running an honest, thoughtful campaign against a group of vicious, hate-mongering liars. The fact that you did not win the election is more a reflection of the depths to which they will sink than it is a reflection of any failings on your part.

I'm sorry you had to have your reputation trashed, your heroism questioned, your words twisted, and your good deeds sullied by a group of people who wouldn't know honor, courage, honesty, or integrity if any of the above bit them directly on their asses. I'm sorry you were betrayed by an electorate so frightened and ignorant they can't see the forest for the trees, along with an opponent who actively sought to supress the voices of your supporters. Mostly though, I'm sorry we won't have your intelligent guidance in the White House. What a wonderful President you would make! It's been four looooooooooooooong years since we've had a real president, and the next four promise to be dismal indeed.

I know you've already given so much to this country, but I am begging you for a bit more. Please do all that you can to impede BushCo's progress towards radical right-wing domination. I know it's an uphill battle with so many on the wrong side of the issues, but I am begging you to try. If he can't be stopped, he must at least be slowed. For my part, I pledge to do everything in my power to expose this administration and help end our long national nightmare. Thank you.
