Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

We Get Letters

Barkman a prosecutor or defense attorney?

Dear Editor:

Patrick Barkman writes more like a prosecuting attorney with a weak case than a defense attorney.
Talk about “self-righteous blowhard Republicans and their moral implosions” and “lie down with dogs and get up with Republicans” makes me think that he is using only on ear and eye when making these judgment calls. I have trouble separating the actions of the two party memberships in personal behavior, but since he brought the subject up, let’s look at a few things.
Sen. Craig, of Republican Idaho, was apparently caught with some pants down and, if the allegations are true, should retire because of his activity, his misrepresentation of his character and for bringing shame on his office, his state, and his voting public. Although not considered criminal acts, how about immoral, or does that count these days? The Republican governor can, by law, appoint a replacement of his choice, but one shouldn’t compare any state’s politics to Louisiana’s.
The fact that the American public did have knowledge of Willie Clinton’s roving eye and cheating heart is what disillusions me about the American public’s reasoning in its choices. Not “splinters in neighbor’s eyes,” Patrick, but 2X4’s, which are hard to miss. I won’t even comment on Barney Franks [sic] other than to say he must get his voters what they want, and they do not worry about trysts of this nature.
To compare Kennedy to Lincoln is shocking, as their principle similarity was being president. Facts indicate that the three Kennedy boys left their morals with their priest. Ted, the noted “bridge deserter of Mary Jo Kopeckne,” must feed his flock of sheep lots of sugar to stay in office. As for Fred Thompson, he is smart enough to campaign with ideas that work and shouldn’t be predetermined guilty of ignoring and circumventing the constitution until proven guilty. Patrick is right about him not starring with a monkey as Reagan did nor as Hillary does!
It seems wrong for a defense lawyer to prejudge veteran Gen. Petraeus who has witnessed unimaginable patriotism, heroism and savage carnage while his troops are striving to protect us so that we can speak this freely, and I believe that he should be proven a toad before judgment and sentencing? [sic]
I feel very few Americans are in favor of the “General Betrayus” clown act, a ridiculous group. The so called “War Party” has a heck of a long way to go to catch up with the perpetrators of the Korean War and the Vietnam War, each of which claimed the lives of many, many thousands of Americans sent to die under the leadership of Truman, Kennedy and Johnson of “the Peace Party.”
Countless thousands of Koreans, Vietnamese and other Asians were also victims of our leaders’ whims in those unneeded and tragically conducted wars. God bless our veterans and all victims of past and present wars. Today, less raving and more troop appreciation by Congress would be classy.
It is sorrowful that so many people are so economically affected by the changed mortgage rates. People who live way above their means often get caught in terrible binds when it is too easy to borrow big bucks. However, potential voting power will nudge “big brudder” to bail them out. “Learning the hard way” is through a difficult curriculum, but will it stick?
I agree with Patrick that Gov. Rick Perry and President Bush have often been distracted from their job descriptions. No doubt, he has already selected who can and who will do better! President Bush has detractors now, but I feel that history will prove that he made some sincere and proper moves, thus saving the world from much of the grief it would otherwise have suffered.

Oh...that hurts...ok, better now.

My you do get some interesting correspondence. Letters to the BlognonyPAD (well emails) are usually of the "Eat sh*t and die, liberal scum!" variety.

I suppose I should take a certain perverse pride in that, shouldn't I?
