"Dear" Lamar Alexander

You said:

"Dear Mr. Alley:

Thanks for letting me know what's on your mind regarding Federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

On Thursday, April 14th, I voted for an amendment to prevent Planned Parenthood Federation of America and its local affiliates from receiving Federal funding for Fiscal Year 2011.

I am grateful you took the time to let me know where you stand on this important issue. I will be sure to keep your comments in mind as these issues are discussed and debated in Washington and in Tennessee."

I said:

"I hope you also voted to set aside some funding for orphanages, potters' fields, and STD clinics, since 97% of the services provided by Planned Parenthood include routine preventative health care like cervical cancer screenings, breast exams, birth control, and counseling for women who will not otherwise have access to those services. Contrary to what your preferred "news" source might have told you, Walgreens doesn't perform pap smears or talk to the scared teenage daughters of people like you about their options.

Also, I don't know any Misters named Kristy. Thank you for taking the time to send a condescending and completely insincere form email."

And then his evil website crashed my browser. Damn you, Lamar Alexander. Damn you.
