Yesterday I ("dear friend") received a two page "letter' from our Republican Senator wannabe's wife. Nicely worded, nicely typed, nice use of script font. She stressed his family devotion, how his face lit up when he smiled, and how she got all wiggly inside (my words not hers) when he first looked at her and smiled.
How wonderful a daddy he was.
This was a girl-to-girl letter, and I know it was meant to impress me as a female that he was just the man for the job. Navy Vet, lawyer. Police Chief.
Not a WORD about his affiliation, or his voting record, or his political leanings. After all, the cynic in me purrs, what woman would be interested in all THAT?
And today I go out to vote elsewise. Im sure he's a lovely man, good to dogs and kids and old ladies, but not this time, Im afraid.
