Wonkette has a copy of a letter sent by U.S. Rep. David Dreier to constituents in the 26th Congressional District.
Here’s what Wonkette says:
Everybody in California’s 26th congressional district got this crazy-ass ALL CAPS hand-written freakout from beloved conservative bachelor David Dreier today. You can read the second page of ALL CAPS “MUST DRILL 4 OIL AT SEA WORLD OR ISLAMO FASCISTS WILL KILL KILL KILL” in the comments of basically all blogs everywhere.
I think the reference to the second page is a joke. BTW, here’s what folks in Washington think about the San Gabriel Valley: (this comes from the comments to the same post)
You East Coast Wankers have to realize with what you are dealing.
California’s 26th Congressional District is way out in the San Gabriel Valley, where it’s hot as hades; there are no jobs; real estate values are in the toilet, and EVERYBODY has to DRIVE to get someplace else that is more semi-habitable, e.g., L.A.
So the Fine Folks From The 26th would approve shoving a Hughes Tool Co. diamond-studded drill bit up the behind of a cherubic 9 month old baby if they thought it would bring gas prices down.
If you don’t believe me, consider this: Rancho Cucamonga is one of the larger “cities” in the 26th. (I kid you not.)
And the demographics look like this:
Median Household Income: $68,968 (most of which is generated by meth labs)
8.4% are below the poverty line (that’s the National poverty line. Applying California Cost of Living standards, it’s more like 40%
17.3% blue collar (i.e., no teeth bikers who buy the meth)
70.7% white collar (tweeker lab techs)
As of 2002, there are 639,088 people in the 26th District of California.
35.4% are registered Democratic (White trash)
46.4% are registered Republican (More white trash)
5.2% are African American (Running scared from The Man)
16.7% are Asian-American (Running scared to school)
24.4% are Hispanic (Running scared from La Migra)
David Dreier is PERFECT for them.
