I gave money to John Kerry's campaign in the 2004 election. I still receive calls to this day asking for money. Either its kids needing healthcare or Kerry needing a tutor in foreign policy (see my post about Kerry's undergrad grades) - it seems like its always something my tax dollars, or Senator Kerry, can't fix without an additional $50 from me.
To Senator Kerry: With all due respect, we aren't stupid. We all know you are running again in 2008. When you have your people call us to ask for money, why don't you just have them say it's for that. At least then we can get a laugh out of it and don't have to think about impoverished children all day long.
Sincerely, An Independent thinker who was never impressed with you in the first place and is less impressed with you now.
P.S. Please stop calling me.
