Pot letter really lampooned GOP’s Religious Right

I am left wondering what possible purpose was served by printing the recent rant from Robert Cooper. Mr. Cooper was incensed over a previous letter from Stan White.

I went back and reread Mr. White’s letter thinking surely I must have missed something that had gotten Mr. Cooper stirred up.

But my second reading confirmed my first impression – Mr. White was simply lampooning the Religious Right, which has hijacked the Republican party in recent years.

From that springboard, Mr. Cooper was able to touch upon such wide ranging topics as Tojo, marijuana, communism and the threat of “liberals” to life as he would like it to be.

I’m going to make a guess here and assume Mr. Cooper is a George Bush supporter. Since Mr. Cooper is able to remember the last 60 years of world history with such clarity, surely he will recall a short three years ago when Mr. Bush assured us he was a, “Uniter, not a divider.”

Today, as evidenced by Mr. Cooper’s intemperate remarks, our nation is more polarized than it has been since Watergate and the Vietnam era. Considering that, yes, I would agree with Mr. White that this nation is badly in need of some love, healing and unity.
