Blanket statements pretty well suck

How I feel about it all: irritatedirritated
Soundtrack: The Randi Rhodes show
Dear Randi Rhodes,

I love your show. I don't always get to listen, but when I do, it's a treat, because I'm informed and educated at the same time.

However, you need get your facts straight on at least one subject. You said on today's show that "All Repbublicans voted for the war". Even if you did only mean the Republicans in the Senate (and I can't believe you'd be referring to all Republican Americans, because well. It's just not true.), I'm afraid you're still mistaken.

Look what CNN reports here:

"The Senate vote sharply divided Democrats, with 29 voting for the measure and 21 against. All Republicans except Sen. Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island voted for passage."

I'm very proud of my Senator for bucking the party line and following his conscience. After the vote, I listened to numerous interviews with Senator Chafee where he gave his reasons why, and I agreed with all of them. The Republican party (and the Democrats!) need more people who vote with their conscience, not with their jerking knees. Please get the info right.

Admonishingly yours,


P.S. I'd email you, but I can't find an address. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place.

P.S. I still love you.
