Resign and rejoin

Dear George:

I was so disappointed for you when you were re-elected. Had you lost, I knew that, as a real he-man and a tough talker, you'd have grabbed the opportunity to join those other fellows in their fifties whose National Guard units have been sent to Iraq, and finish up your obligation. That would shut down those skeptics who questioned your commitment to our national security. You'd love Iraq from the perspective of an unarmored hum-vee, with antiquated body armor. The resulting photo-ops would make Kerry's exploits look even more lame. You'd mow down insurgents just like you chop cedar over there in Crawford.

Like you said: "I didn't ask for special treatment!" We understand that, as your daddy's dutiful boy, you had to accept that Guard assignment. So, tough luck about the election, but you could still resign and rejoin. God is on your side so, "Bring 'em on," right?

And, you're still a young guy, who might yet discover what it takes to become a successful, self-made businessman, and repay the Harken stockholders that bailed you out.

Please do not use comments for personal attacks. One of the goals of this project is to allow these open letters to foster civil (and civic) debate, so please keep personal attacks to yourselves, even if you disagree with the letter/comments here. Better yet, write a letter yourself.
