In response to: Why I decided to vote for Bush

By [email protected]

Dear Andrew Kirk,

I want to thank you for your helpful comments on why one might rationally vote for George Bush. I think you make some very interesting points, I just wish you wouldn’t have put your picture on the article. Every time I look up at it, I see an ugly white kid, and this just makes me sick. I know your reasoning seems sound, but again, that picture just gets in the way. I’m not really queasy about it, I just think Ugh, this guy looks Wrong! Perhaps, if I could just get by how you look maybe I could finish the article; and I know its not your fault you look that way, maybe your parents looked that way too. Thus I apologize that while at first I was logically convinced by what you were saying, now I associate your thoughts with total rubbish.

But, perhaps I am doing you a disservice. At least you are honest about your feelings and not couching them in terms such as: ‘protection of marriage’. Even so, your words produce in me, “… a deep violent reaction, like seeing a child beaten”. I hope you live wisely enough in the future to regret putting this statement in print.

PS. I don’t really think Andrew or his parents are Ugly, just his bigotry.
