Senator John F. Kerry
901 15th St. NW, Suite 700
Washington, DC 20005

Dear Senator Kerry,

First, I should tell you up front--I won’t be voting for you. You seem like a good guy--you even remind me of Lincoln. But I just think it would be treasonous to vote against Our President when He’s fighting a war. What kind of signal would that give to our enemies? That He made a mistake?

But I still like you and want to help you “define” yourself. I saw you debating Kucinich and Sharpton in California, and Larry King asked, “What would be your first act as president?” You said, “Overturn the Global Gag Rule.”
And Sharpton said, “The first thing I’ll do when I get in the Oval Office is change the locks on the door!”

You see? Nobody even knows what the Global Gag Rule is except for millions of women on the other side of the world, and they don’t even vote! You should learn to come up with funny, snappy one-liners like Sharpton and hit those questions right out of the park! You have to learn to stop thinking so much and answer with little, pretzel-size sound bites. We’re in a hurry! We don’t have time to think! Our President has a big advantage because He never says a sentence that’s more than five words or ten syllables, whichever comes first. He’s a natural!

Anyway, I put together a little questionaire for you. I hope you will fill it out. It will help us know “The Real John Kerry,” and maybe it will help you “sharpen your message.”

Carl Estrada
