Dear Mayor Kelly,
We were amused by your pathetic and desperate attempt to elevate your image by trashing Chris Coleman with a typical Karl Rove smear. The Bush camp used their deceitful "flip-flop" theme so often, it wouldn't surprise us to learn they had it trademarked. It's their hallmark nonetheless. When we received your retreaded "flip-flop" postcard in yesterday's mail, the only logical explanation we could see for your using it was that you must truly be in Bush's camp, if not his pocket. Mayor Kelly -- THIS IS WHY YOUR CAMPAIGN IS HURTING IN THE FIRST PLACE! Is this your attempt to win over Bush Republicans without changing your party, and still save face? So sad.
Any Democrat misguided enough to still consider voting for you will surely think twice now -- your "flip-flop" smear postcard only reminds them that your Bush-endorsement has pegged you the consummate "flip-flopper" who now shamefully resorts to smearing the other guy in tried-and-true Bush-fashion, rather than having the dignity to focus on your own meager accomplishments. Here's a tip: You're embarrassing yourself.
