Just received this email: any suggestions on how to respond?

Dear Republican Precinct Delegate,

Congratulations on being elected as a Precinct Delegate. As a leader in your community, we know that you are particularly focused on ensuring our Republican ticket wins in November. Therefore, I am asking your help in leading the McCain-Palin effort in your precinct over the next 55 days as a Precinct Captain!

As a McCain-Palin Precinct captain, we ask that you help with these tasks for the campaign:

Ask a friend, relative or neighbor to join the McCain-Palin Team
Place 5 lawn signs in your precinct;
Write a letter to the editor supporting McCain-Palin
Recruit at least 2 volunteers to help with Phones or Door-to-Door efforts in your closest Victory Center a week

As a Precinct Captain, you will be uniquely empowered to help win Michigan for the first time in 20 years. If you cannot help us in this capacity, please respond to this email with someone who you think could help us in this role.

Thank you for all you do for our Party and a member of our staff will be contacting you shortly. In the meantime, please feel free to call with any questions.

Thank you for your support of McCain-Palin 2008!

I think I would be a good precinct captain.... I doubt the McCain campaign would like some of the information that I will hand out though...

Dear Al, Fuck

Dear Al,

Fuck you.


Eh, don't respond at all!

Eh, don't respond at all! Why bother? Maybe just go through your precinct with a flyer detailing real republican ideals and leave it at that! If you still have your seat after the election cycle then you can really go into "ron paul republican" mode!!! Which, you still should be doing, but the hawks are out right now. . .

Cheerful Response

Hypothetically, if you have the energy and inclination, respond as follows.

Dear Republican tools of Collectivism,

I will gladly put up five lawn signs in my precinct, for Chuck Baldwin. (Or, if your proclivities run otherwise, for Barr/Nader/McKinney/Whomever)

I will also write letters to my local paper encouraging other voters to reject the Parties of Corporate Welfare, International Aggression, and Federal Reserve Counterfeiting.

Inasmuch as I'd love to vote for a principled Republican with respect for the Constitution, I will look forward to your recanting our occupation of Iraq and your joint assault (with Democommie Russ Feingold) on the First Amendment.

For all our talk of supporting Dr Paul and being strict Constitutionalists, why don’t we read the Constitution and realize that Dr Paul can be elected President without appearing on a single State ballot?
