Email to a Deranged Monkey

I have a email address for a deranged monkey to submit it's resume for employment here at Radioactive Liberty. I had the pleasure of receiving this application from DNC Chairman Dean. YEARRRRRGH!

Dear Deranged,
Mr. Dean, YOU are the Deranged one, not me

The Bush Adminstration refused to come clean about John Roberts's record and rejected over 100,000 requests for key documents. You can read the letter from the Department of Justice.
How 'bout those documents Sandy Burglar took? I'm more interested in what those have to say.

Adminstration stonewalling and Roberts's silence on key issues leave too many unanswered questions. Don't be afraid to speak out -- tell your local newspaper that America's highest court deserves a better process and a better nominee.
Can I tell them what we really need are better Justices than the ones we already have? Especially Souter, Kennedy, Ginsberg, and O'Connor. What can we do to get rid of those losers?

A few weeks ago more than 100,000 of us filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for key documents on Supreme Court nominee John Roberts. This week, just before the legal deadline for a response, the Justice Department formally brushed aside the public interest and refused to release the documents.
If your going to go back to that, I'll go back to Sandy Burglar. I think we're going in circles here.

Senate Democrats waited for the Bush Administration to come clean about Roberts's record -- the administration chose not to. During the hearings, they asked Roberts serious, precise questions about his record and his views -- but Roberts dodged question after question.
Kinda like Ginsburg not answering about how 12 year olds should be legal in terms of the age of consent?

Our Senate Leader, Harry Reid, is right: there are simply too many questions left unanswered. John Roberts, and the sham process that has accompanied his nomination, does not deserve our support.
I noticed it's a sham too, but probably not how you meant it

But it is obvious that the Republican-controlled Senate will confirm John Roberts. Some people even say that it's useless for us to speak out against him. They say we're wasting our time.
Yup! Just keep wasting away. It's how you got where you are in the first place.

But how will we win any battle if we don't stand up for what we believe and speak the truth? More importantly, how will Americans know what to expect from a Democratic Congress and Democratic president if we don't fight for our values at every opportunity?
The reason you've been losing is because you have been standing up and speaking the "truth." Everyone can see what a bunch of dopey nutjobs you are.

Democrats can disagree with Democrats in good faith -- and many do on this issue. But when political calculations silence our conscience, we have abandoned our true values. We cannot let that happen.
Sure they can, and when they do you'll find some way to attack those who disagree as traitors, fascists, racist, or just plain crazy. That's what you always do

Our party must speak plainly and fight for the values of equality, opportunity and security that bring our party -- and the vast majority of Americans -- together.
Don't you mean equality of outcome, lack of opportunity, and Social Security?

And that's exactly what we're going to do.
Best of luck to you. Hope it keeps costing you elections, like it has for the last 20 years.

If you want to take a stand in your community, you can start by writing a letter to the editor of your local paper about why John Roberts is the wrong man at the wrong time. Nearly 75,000 letters have already gone to newspapers.
I'm feeling a strange sense of deja vu here. Did you just have so little to say that you had to say everything twice?

Don't be afraid to fight:
Why not? You are. Unless it's aginst your own people.

Thank you.
No, Thank YOU, for the laughs.

Governor Howard Dean, M.D.
I didn't know you were still Governor.
