Dear Representative Campfield:
I write from Lubbock, the heart of Bush territory, to tell you that your comments on the Cheney hunting accident are absolutely appalling.
To make the following comments reveals the most callous disregard for the realities of this event:
You have made light, in the most contemptible way possible, of a life-threatening accident. Do you think Mr Whittington's family will find your comments amusing? Do you possibly imagine that such comments as these will ingratiate you with the Bush White House? All you have done is reinforce the public sense that Republicans are callous, obtuse, spoiled, and arrogant.
You had deservedly minimal media visibility to date, but I guarantee your stupid opportunism has deep-sixed your further political aspirations. Like Jean Schmidt, your attempt to gain the national spotlight by doing the White House's hatchet-work is going to backfire on you entirely.
I'll wager money your email is running at least 2-to-1 in condemnation of your cowardly, opportunistic, syncophantic comments. Good luck in the private sector.
