Letter to Nancy Pelosi

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi
90 7th St., Suite 2-800
San Francisco, CA 94103

March 22, 2010

Dear Speaker Pelosi:

I'm sending you a check for $50. It's not much, given that government runs on trillions these days, but it's what I can afford. And I want to give it to you.

I have been so fed up with the Democratic Party lately that my impulse to write a check even for this amount surprises me. I have been routinely telling the phone solicitors from the DCCC that, given the way the Democratic Party has wussed out lately, I have been wishing a pox on both your houses.

I understand what you're up against. The Stupaks who make you believe you have to throw women under a bus, the Nelsons who make you believe you have to throw everybody but Nebraskans under a bus, the Republicans who make you believe you have to throw gays and everybody too poor to buy a congressman under a bus. It's a hard job standing up and doing the right thing.

But damned if you haven't gone and done it this time.

I am so proud of you. So proud to live in the San Francisco Bay Area and be able to say, Nancy Pelosi, she's from here!

So proud.

So proud.
