Great Letter to the Editor

Just thought I would pass on probably the best Letter to the Editor I have ever read. It appears in todays Argus Leader.

"During the 2004 campaign, Republican John Thune told voters that if elected to replace then-Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle, his GOP ties would ensure that Ellsworth Air Force Base would remain open. Daschle said that as minority leader, he would have an appointment to the Base Realignment and Closure Commission and be in a better position to help Ellsworth.The Associated Press headline in a recent paper read, "Thune fails to keep Ellsworth off list."
Let's see how other congressional leaders fared:

Tennessee, home of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn.: 1,088 new jobs with no major closures.

Nevada, home of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.: 1,059 new jobs with no major closures.

California, home of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.: all major installations in the state remain open.

Texas, home of House Majority Leader Tom Delay, R-Texas: net gain of over 6,000 jobs.
Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert: congressional district in Illinois unaffected."

Sorta speaks for itself doesn't it?
