The mild mannered law-abiding "We The People" crowd responded politely to the gross misrepresentations by posting a piece entitled What's Wrong With This Picture? where they wrote,
The Whatcom Tea Party objects to being used to smear honorable candidates. The candidates being smeared here have not been running as Tea Party candidates. We wish the Democrats would have left us out of this. We are a non-partisan organization. Non-partisan does not mean unprincipled, but we deliberately do not endorse or disparage any candidates.
But wait! There's more! In a second article, What's Wrong With This Other Picture?, they repeated the same preamble, but over a blood red slaughterhouse picture. Here they caught on that perhaps these mailers meant (in a vicious way) to intimidate voters; that the Democrats may want to so disgust the "undecideds" about local politics and the process that they won't vote at all. This material is so ugly it just may alienate some from wanting to exercise their rights.
Here's the factually-absurd slaughterhouse mailing, for the morbidly curious:
WE love it! That's exactly what elections are for. The public has got to reject this bloodstained bomb-throwing tactic. It's too low for a civil society to accept.
Rewarding partisan ugliness with with positions of power would be oh so wrong. Is that the Whatcom County you want to live in?
