I get weird e-mail from nutty people, but this one takes the cake. His letter is in plain text, my responses are in italic.

You know, given the circumstances, Pres. Bush did a pretty good job. John Kerry thinks he has all the answers, but does he? Or does he have the results, thus influencing his answers. If George Bush hadn’t done something about Sept. 11, would Kerry and you have made just as big of a deal about not protecting our country as you are now? Most likely.
George Bush is the worst president we’ve ever had. He didn’t do shit about Sept. 11. And Kerry would have had plenty of ammunition even if we hadn’t invaded Iraq, because George has put the economy in a tailspin and hundreds of thousands of people have lost their jobs.
When in a community someone is murdered and the people are making uproar, the sheriff has to arrest someone, so the people will return to their daily lives, calm and happy. Pres. Bush did just that. He may not have gone through the right procedures, but he took action.
That statement is just INSANE. And completely Un-American. No, the sheriff doesn’t have to arrest “someone” to make people happy. HE HAS TO ARREST THE GUILTY PERSON. Not someone who didn’t commit the crime. My God, I don’t want to live in any community you live in. I might end up arrested for a crime I didn’t commit just to make you happy. And the fact is, George Bush had the chance to arrest the guilty person, Osama bin Laden, and he fucked it up because he was already preparing to invade Iraq and he was already committing troops for Iraq, and didn’t want to deal with Afghanistan.
John Kerry would have waited for the outcome that we have now, no bombs and no relationship to Al Qeada, but may have been knocked up once again by the Terrorists. How many things have gone on since 9/11? Not much.
First of all, if John Kerry, or even Al Gore had be president, 9/11 would have been foiled before it happened, because either of them would have paid better attention to their intelligence and prevented it. If we had not invaded Iraq, and instead used the troops to secure Afghanistan and to get bin Laden, we’d all be a lot safer now. Plus we wouldn’t have 1000+ American troops dead for no good reason.
Are you ever troubled by these lose weight over night schemes? They say take our pill, drink our stuff, and sleep off those extra pounds. When in reality, exercise and dieting are the right ways to get rid of extra weight. Well have you ever compared those quick plans to John Kerry’s plan? He says that he will go over clean Iraq up in a couple years and be able to go on with life. When in fact it will take much longer, how long did it take America to become a nation?
I have read John Kerry’s plan for getting out of Iraq, go read it yourself; it’s on his website. It doesn’t sound anything like your lame weight-loss plan analogy. It doesn’t say we’re going to “clean Iraq up in a couple years and be able to go on with life.” That’s just bullshit. It’s certainly a better plan for keeping our soldiers safe and getting the job done that Bush’s plan.
Why didn’t Saddam Hussein just comply with the inspectors? Do you know? It sounds like he was trying to hide something, doesn’t it? He never ever gave a straight answer. That might have been threatening to us, the U.S. I know that there are other countries that have weapons of mass destruction, but we must take care of one at a time.
Saddam Hussein WAS COMPLYING. He was letting the inspectors look, and they couldn’t find anything. He wasn’t hiding anything, because he DIDN’T HAVE ANYTHING TO HIDE. As you might have realized, there were not Weapons of Mass Destruction. He certainly did give a straight answer to the U.N. It’s just that George Bush didn’t like the answer. And George Bush wanted to invade Iraq, whether he had a good reason or not.
Also Pres. Bush doesn’t support gay marriage. Why does Kerry? We all know that there is no way in the world that two people of the same sex can reproduce. We also know that a man’s qualities compliment a woman and woman’s qualities compliment a man. You all think you have it straight and obviously you don’t.
First of all, John Kerry doesn’t support gay marriage, you idiot. Pay attention. Second. I’M GAY, AND I WANT TO GET MARRIED. I’m only supporting Kerry because I don’t want the constitution amended. If I had a better Democratic candidate who supported gay marriage, I’d certainly vote for him. For your information, I certainly can reproduce. Dumbass. Plus you don’t know shit about what “qualities” compliment people. My wonderful girlfriend’s qualities certainly compliment me better than any man’s ever could.
Pres. Bush isn’t really all that bad. Just in the eyes of the beholder. You should support your President.
No, I shouldn’t. I’m an AMERICAN. I’m under no obligation to support the president, especially if he’s an idiot and a liar, if he’s killing people for no reason, if he’s screwing up the economy and if he threatens my well-being and the security of my family. George Bush does all those things.
Pres. Bush has my vote and a lot of other people I know as well!!!! Good Luck to yourself!
And John Kerry has my vote, and a lot of other people I know, too. We’ll see what happens in a couple of weeks.
