Another Note from my old Pal, Barry

You’d think, what with running the country and all, Barry wouldn’t have time to keep sending me notes. You would be wrong. I just got another one this morning. I’m pretty sure he wants me to vote for someone named Coakley. Now I’m the kind of guy who wouldn’t let down a pal, so I checked down at the Catholic Church where we go to vote and the place was near empty.

Aside from the priest and a couple of stray nuns, the usual voter people weren’t there. If I could have voted, I sure I would have delivered the precinct because no one else showed up. Then I checked the note from Barry and he mentioned Massachusetts so I guess he got the Missouri stack mixed up with the Massachusetts stack by mistake. Like I said, he’s been really busy these days.

When I get letters from prominent people I like to share so here’s my reply and I put it in red right in the letter so you know it’s mine.

“Friend –Now I know for sure he hasn’t read the blog.

Right now, the polls are open to elect a new senator to the seat that my friend Ted Kennedy held for 47 years. Well, that explains everything. Kennedy and I were the same age so I guess he’s got a “thing” for old guys.

The choice could not be more stark, and the result could not be of greater consequence -- for Massachusetts or the nation. Boy, I heard that!

The Bay State can send progressive (progressive, is that more like liberal, Marxist, or just plain old communist?) champion Martha Coakley to Washington to fight for everything we believe in -- health reform (I’m not so sure about that one,) getting all of our money back from Wall Street (Good luck there.), and holding corporate interests accountable (does that include GM and Chrysler?)

Or the Senate can get one more person already walking in lockstep with Washington Republicans. Brown learned that “lockstep” when he was in the military, unlike Coakley and Kennedy and Barry.

The polls are still open, (not here in the Ozarks) the choice has not been made, and you still have a crucial role to play by calling voters in Massachusetts. In a low-turnout special election like this one, every single voter counts. And every married voter and every dead voter and every voter bused in from out of state counts too.

Please call Massachusetts voters today.

Opponents of change and progress have been pouring money and resources into the Commonwealth -- they want to keep things just as they are. No, they want to change everything which has happened over the last year.

The most important thing you can do to stand up to them is call voters and urge them to get out to vote for the leader we need representing Massachusetts. Don’t be shy Barry, tell them to vote for Brown.

In a race as close as this one, no matter how many voters you call, you could tip the balance. I’ll bet the SEIU, ACORN and the Black Panthers could do an even better job.

So please make sure you do everything you can today. Click here to start calling voters in Massachusetts right away: You’re right—I should call my sister-in-law.

If you were fired up in the last election, I need you more fired up in this election. I was, and you won anyway.

Thanks for everything you've done, and for your efforts in this final push. No problem!

President Barack Obama”

Please note that we are so tight now that he didn’t even ask me for money. Next thing you know he and Michelle will be inviting me over for grits and gravy. Maybe I’d get a chance to meet the kids. That little one looks like she’d be a pistol.

In His abiding love,

Cecil Moon
