My friend Cal just emailed me this link of a letter to the editor of the SF Chronicle. Look no further if you’re in need of some Friday afternoon levity. Here’s the LTE:

Here’s the ticket — Barack and Nancy!

Editor — Let’s cut short all the campaigning and political blather — it’s Barack and Nancy in ’08! What a fabulous team — the wise, legislatively experienced, culturally aware, politically astute House speaker, paired with the most charismatic, articulate American politician to appear on the landscape in decades — U.S. Sen. Barack Obama!

Both Nancy and Barack have integrity, a sound vision of the values this country should represent, are fair-minded and have few ties to the corporate corruption that is rampant in politics.

U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, for all her virtues, and she has many, has too much baggage; lost baggage at that. She’s too spineless and will compromise too easily for her own political survival.

America needs to send a message to the rest of the world: We’re not a school of spineless jellyfish, we have high ideals, but we’re not head-in-the-sand ideologues, we’re independent thinkers.

We’re not incapable of changing direction when presented with the verifiable facts. We are a humane nation, capable of putting people before profit, responsive to the needs of the world and willing to sacrifice so that the world may benefit in the long run.

This LTE would be laughable if it weren’t so wrongheaded. The writer says that we need to show the world that we aren’t “a school of spineless jellyfish” on the day that the Senate voted to run like spineless wimps from Iraq. The writer says that “we have high ideals” but those ideals are either nonexistent or they’re nearly impossible to detect. The writer also says that “we’re not head-in-the-sand ideologues” but he can’t say why Nancy Pelosi and John Murtha haven’t admitted that our troops have started making serious progress in Iraq since implementing Gen. Petraeus’ counterinsurgency plan.

The truth is that Ms. Pelosi and Mr. Murtha won’t admit the truth if it bit them in the backside. They can’t because they’re too spineless to stand up to the lunatic nut jobs of the far, far left.

As for a ticket of Obama and Pelosi, the only thing that I’d say about that is PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE!!! That ticket would prove that there is a God in Heaven and that He’s on our side.
