Rice ‘overburdened with confusion’
To the Editor:
What tea has he been drinking?
Republican Chairman Bob Rice's recent letter to the editor is overburdened with confusion and unencumbered by facts, which seems to be the current mode of the Republican National Misinformation Machine.
The most blatant and bizarre of Mr. Rice's strange claims is his untruthful accusation that Celia Murray grossly insulted the Tea Bag people. He rails on for paragraphs at his outrage against her, we Democrats, and even Editor Patrick Yost for printing such vileness.
Except that it didn't happen.
I invite any and all to re-read Ms. Murray's thoughtful, accurate, and funny column, "Tea parties and tea leaves," (04/23/2009) on the Morgan County Citizen Web site.
In the meantime, following his demeaning rant, I trust that Mr. Rice will follow his own advice and quickly and quietly resign:
"If I were the chairman of a political party where my spokesperson used such vile language to describe hundreds of people of Madison, I'd have a new spokesperson in a hurry." (Chairman Bob Rice, 07/09/2009)
Hope your retirement is a happy one, Bob.
