Reading between the lines

Because I've been annoyed with most politicians lately, I was really not in the mood to be insulted by the President... again.

I wrote him an email that basically asked him to stop insulting the majority of the country. I went on to say something like: Most citizens disagree with your actions and policies and you continue to call us naive, freedom-hating, terrorist-loving morons and we're getting sick of it. Knock it off.

I got the following as a reply (Needless to say, the comments in red are mine.):

On behalf of President Bush, thank you for your correspondence (you whiny pain in the ass). We appreciate hearing your views and welcome your suggestions (we won't listen, but thanks for trying). The President is committed to continuing our economic progress (ha), defending our freedom (ha ha), and upholding our Nation's deepest values (Yeah, we know. Even we have to laugh at this point. But seriously, he's trying... except the part about swearing to uphold and protect the Constitution, he's not really into that part). Due to the large volume of e-mail received (i.e. complaints, letters of disappointment and general hate mail), the White House cannot respond to every message (only the ones we like). Please visit the White House website for the most up-to-date information (propaganda) on Presidential initiatives, current events, and topics of interest to you (aka the tiny bits of good news we're still able to spin). In order to better receive (i.e. avoid) comments from the public, a new system has been implemented. In the future please send your comments to Thank you again for taking the time to write (Now, piss off).

Whether you agree with me or not, I encourage you to write to the generic "comments" link above as often as possible.

Happy Friday!!!
