Jimmy Edney. I saw your sign on the link above and just wanted to say how I feel. I lived in your fine country last year and returned to the UK determined to dispel the stereotype most Brits have of Americans, that they’re all blissfully ignorant and actively stupid. Among many of my friends, at least, I felt like I was getting somewhere.
That sign makes me feel ashamed on your behalf, even if you don’t know why and probably resent my pity. I’m not telling how to vote. I’m sure once you peel away the blatant lies and big oil corruption McCain is basically a fine American. We could use a lot more of his type and a lot less of you.
I shudder to think how overburdened your mail box has become since this first appeared on-line, so I won’t expect a reply, but if you do find the time I’d be only too happy to argue in your corner if by some miracle you manage to convince me there is any justification, first amendment or otherwise, for your blatantly racist ignorance. It’s called tolerance for the views of others – it happens a lot in those funny to pronounce places across the Atlantic – you know – those countries you can’t point to on a map, where they know what real democracy is? Check it out sometime. Cunt face.
