In the mailbag

This letter appeared in yesterday's Baraboo News Republic:

Fighting Bob Fest will feature many non-sheep

Who are the real sheep here? You are, who blindly followed this failed president into war. Sheep don't ask why. Sheep aren't skeptical. Sheep don't protest. Sheep just keep their heads down.

Remember when conservatives portrayed themselves as rugged individualists? No nation building. Fiscal responsibility. Small government. Privacy. Looks like those tough guys were sheep in wolves clothing. Every single principle was thrown out the window.
Pay special attention to this next part:

What remains after we've sheared this Neocon sheep? A selfish, xenophobic, racist, intolerant, greedy, frightened, pitiful little creature.

Maybe somewhere deep inside his mind, he realizes he has been used. His fears have been exploited by a bunch of modern-day Machiavellis. But he's too invested in the facade of King George. He can't back out now. The shame would be too great. So off he goes, with the herd, braying the same old, tired talking points.

Let's all go down to Fighting Bob Fest to see Ed Garvey, Cindy Sheehan, Matt Rothschild and many more of the most un-sheeplike people you will ever meet.

John Rausch,
Where else can you find such willfully ignorant, ignorantly dismissive anger and hatefulness, except in the ramblings of a rampant liberal?

And by the way, I bet Mr. Rausch is more sheeplike than he'd care to admit.
