A funny letter to the editor in today’s Minneapolis Star-Tribune, my hometown paper. “I still feel the American people will have the good sense to keep Republicans in control of the House and Senate. If family values voters get out and vote, that will easily be accomplished.” I would like to know whom in the House and Senate represents “family values” to this letter writer.
Would that be pedophile Mark Foley?
The Republican members of Congress who kept quiet about Mark Foley’s activities?
The greedy, self-serving Randy (Duke) Cunningham?
The many partners-in-crime of Jack Abramoff?
Philanderer and woman-beater Don Sherwood?
The racist George Allen?
The corrupt, power-mad Tom DeLay?
The sleazy, opportunistic Bill Frist?
The bribe-taking Bob Ney?
Maybe the letter writer meant Mafia family values.
