As Promised, Here’s My LTE
I have a letter in the Star Tribune today.
The other side
In the March 26 Blog House, Tim O’Brien decided to run a partisan attack from a DFL blogger against Rep. Michele Bachmann. O’Brien decided to note their off-topic attacks and even used the phrase ‘dim bulb’ as a lead in.
My blog, residualforces.com, also addressed the subject, but mine was in support of Bachmann and her plan to save the light bulb, so it was ignored.
I wrote, “In an attempt to reverse the stupefying move by the dim bulbs who wrote and supported the energy bill, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R MN6) is authoring a bill to bring back the light bulb. … In case you didn’t know, the recent energy bill has put the incandescent light bulb on the endangered species list and will ban the sale of them altogether in the very near future. Bachmann opposed the social engineering Energy bill which actually created no new energy and, in fact, was designed to make it harder and more expensive to get reliable and abundant energy.”
Maybe my comments just didn’t fit the anti-Bachmann agenda. Liberals always seem to demand choice, so long as they get to control the options. (You can also find some more fabulous factual coverage at truthvmachine.com.)
So for those of you who read O’Brien’s column, please keep in mind that what Bachmann is trying to do is allow you to choose the light bulb you want — it has nothing to do with bedrooms.
