Well, one Republican, anyway. Yesterday, I received a fundraising letter from Senator Gordon Smith (republican). This short letter (22 paragraphs, many of them consisting of only one sentence) contains:
13 mentions of the word “tax” and variations (taxes, taxed, etc), three in a bold font. (The only other thing that gets a bold font is a request that I send Mr. Smith some money).
12 mentions of “border,” “immigrants,” or variations on those words.
1 mention of the word “terrorism” (in the context of immigration).
Zero mentions of the words “Iraq,” “Iran,” “Afghanistan,” “Middle East,” etc..
Zero mentions of the words “Bush” or “President.”
