I love it when I get letters like this from Ken Mehlman:
Yesterday’s era of Democrats like Franklin Delano Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy brought real ideas and solutions to the table in an attempt to make a better life for the American people. Unfortunately, today’s Democrat Party is not the one your parents knew. Instead, today’s Democrats are singularly focused on obstruction and over-the-top rhetoric, adding nothing to raise the level of discourse and address the concerns of Americans.
Coming on the heels of Rove’s comments, I would just be quiet about over-the-top rhetoric. But what really has me laughing is the deferential treatment of FDR and Kennedy. My grandfather, to the day he died, hated FDR. He called him “that hop-legged son-of-a-bitch.” And don’t even get me started about the Kennedy.
Imagine it is the year 2035, and you get this letter:
Yesterday’s era of Democrats like William Jefferson Clinton and Jimmy Carter brought real ideas and solutions to the table…
You get the point.
