Hate mail sent to a vegan blog

On January 28, 2008 By

I wish I was making this up. I’m not. This is a hate email the author of a vegan blog received.

You people are going to ruin your little daughter and make her burn in hell like the two of you. You think you are clever and so does the devil. Only God has the answer for you. God or G. Bush.

Apparently being vegan is against God. Oh, and God and Dubya are indistinguishable.

This is a really, really, really big endorsement. Obama used it as a chance to subtly take a jab through the Senator for Massachusetts. Ted said (and no doubt was referring to Billary):

With Barack Obama, we will turn the page on the old politics of misrepresentation and distortion.

With Barack Obama, we will close the book on the old politics of race against race, gender against gender, ethnic group against ethnic group, and straight against gay.

Obama accepts and delivers a magnificent speech which his campaign will surely use as a jumping off point given the monstrous win in […]

One of Bush’s visitors tonight at the SOTU is actually prohibited by US law from being here in the states. HT Sullivan.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) cloture vote failed 48-45 just now, well short of the 60 votes necessary.

In the end, four Dems crossed over to vote with the Republicans: Sens. Mark Pryor (D-AR), Ben Nelson (D-NE), Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) and Mary Landrieu (D-LA). Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA) was the lone Republican to vote with the Dems.

The big news, of course, is going to be that the person who started the “Bill Clinton was the first black president” meme is not endorsing his wife’s opponent:

The woman who famously labeled Bill Clinton as the “first black president” is backing Barack Obama to be the second.

That is not her focus, as expected, and I believe her. The best part of all of this is admiring her brilliance with the English language:

“In addition to keen intelligence, integrity and a rare authenticity, you exhibit something that has nothing to do with age, experience, race or gender […]

First was Caroline. Then came Ted. That last one will be the shot heard. For some time people have mentioned JFK in the same breath as Obama. Caroline seems to back this view and the endorsement of her uncle will do much the same.

You’re bound to hear a great bit of downplay spin in this from the Billary camp. Make no mistake. They wanted this one BAD. Barack getting it deals a severe blow to the old school Dems, a group that would seem to be more likely to go for the Bill and Hillary Show. […]
