    Often I doubt politicians’ sincerity, but the four consecutive exclamation points convinced me that his heart is in the right place.

    I wouldn’t vote for any politician who couldn’t use proper GSP – or at least pay someone to do it for him/her.

    Wow…that’s bad. I’d not vote for this person just based on this alone. Bad grammar (especially in this context) is inexcusable.

    Would you rather have an elected official that can’t write one good sentence but whose heart is in the right place, or one who has perfect spelling and grammar but is in the pockets of the mob and takes payoffs?

    That said, this is really painful to read. How embarassing.

    I counted six errors in this letter. I probably missed some. Wow.

    This just goes to show: never trust a Republican.πŸ˜‰

    I counted 6 errors as well.

    This is incredibly depressing. Nobody who’s past middle school should make those mistakes.

    My goodness….
    This is ridiculous.
    Honestly, even using spell check would help him out a little.
    However, the post above this one shows how we can’t always trust Microsoft Office…

    this posting, as well as so many on this site show that the government program “No Child Left Behind” is working perfectly.

    and as so many instances in the past show: a less-educated society is easier to control,…
