Brief Letter to Gordon Smith

Dear Mr. Gordon:
You cannot claim to oppose the continuation of the Iraq war out of one side of your mouth and then vote to continue funding it out of the other. This betrayal of your own allegedly deeply-held convictions about this war cannot go unaddressed.

I am registered in Oregon as an Independent but at the appropriate time I will change my Party affiliation to Republican just so I can vote against you in the 2008 Primary. Furthermore, beginning today I will try to convince as many others as possible to follow my lead.
