Dear Senator Hillary Clinton,

Upon your return to Arkansas this weekend, the state Republican Party wondered… Would the New York Senator feel out of place? Would she worry that she couldn’t fit in? Would she be mocked for using her fake southern accent after the embarrassing ribbing that she received for pandering in Selma, Alabama a few months ago?

Well fear not, Senator Clinton – Republicans are rolling out the red carpet and are dropping off a care package at the Arkansas Democrat headquarters today with a few tools intended to make you feel more at home once you’re south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Upon your arrival in Little Rock, we hope you’ll have some time to peruse the Dixie dictionary that we purchased, The Complete How to Speak Southern, which is “dedicated to all Yankees in the hope that it will teach them to talk right” in the South.

While this small token is simply intended as lighthearted suggested reading, we thought it could lend some helpful refreshers on ways to disguise your New York dialect with a southern twang – especially after your embarrassing performance in Alabama. (*In case you forgot about that mishap, here’s the video of your speech: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaDQ1vIuvZI&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Farkansastruth%2Eblogspot%2Ecom%2F

According to one of your own home-state papers, “Senator Clinton may have drawn rousing ovations during her appearances at civil rights rallies in Selma, Ala., on Sunday, but it was not what she said that stirred the most buzz yesterday - it was how she said it. A 27-second snippet of audio clips … showed New York’s Illinois-born senator adopting a Southern drawl during parts of her speech at a Selma church.” (“Clinton Stirs Buzz On The Web With Her Southern Drawl,” The New York Sun, 3/6/07)

And MSNBC’s Tucker Carlson added that, “Hillary Clinton morphs into Scarlett O’Hara. Well, she talks like her anyway.” (MSNBC’s “Tucker,” 3/5/07)

In addition to adjusting your drawl, we thought you might feel improperly attired for the South, so we’re dropping off a Razorback’s cap that should help you fit in with the locals. Yes, our style might not be as refined as that of your New York constituents, but we hope these gifts will make you feel more at home here in Arkansas.

Unfortunately, no matter how you dress or what you say, there’s not much we can do to disguise the fact that you’re still a liberal Senator from New York who is out of touch with Arkansans’ mainstream values.

Your record on the important issues speaks for itself:

You voted against funding for our troops, bowing to pressure from MoveOn.org and your liberal base, even though you originally agreed with President Bush and voted to authorize the war in Iraq. (H.R. 2206, CQ Vote #181, 5/24/07; H.J. Res. 114, CQ Vote #237, 10/11/02)

By voting against the 2001 and 2003 Republican-led tax cuts, you voted against tax relief that benefits nearly one million Arkansans and approximately 224,000 businesses in this state. (H.R. 2, CQ Vote #196, 5/23/03; H.R. 2, CQ Vote #179, 5/15/03; H.R. 1836, CQ Vote #170, 5/26/01; H.R. 1836, CQ Vote #165, 5/23/01; United States Department Of The Treasury, Office Of Tax Policy, “Tax Relief Kit,” www.treas.gov, 6/20/07)

Good Lord, that's the best we can do? I only thought we were at rock bottom. What? Are the new people in charge dumb enough to think this stuff works? The Dems are going to have close to 2,000 people show up to cheer on BB, McDaniel, Snyder and...Hillary, and we make a joke out of it. No wonder we lose. This is so stupid that it is childish. I know who's not getting any donations...the RPA. Who's wants to give money to support this mess? Jeeze.

I highly suggest that if you can check the IP addresses on your system, you should do it from now on. The YDs apparently have cloak-and-dagger team that focuses on internet work. They were probably the reason the out of context quote from Dennis made it so far. I found an "article" in Wikipedia.org that was solely made to capitalize this. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/

I also wonder why any self-respecting member of our party would want to to make a self-hating comment on here that only the Democrats could capitalize on. I'll be the first to disagree with a RPA's strategy I don't like, but whether I agree or disagree, but going into detailed information on why we should hate ourselves and not donate money to the RPA? That's "Tokyo Rose" Material right there.

If I had anyone to be ticked off about right now, I would choose the Dems and political face-saving Repubs of making a ultimatum of a bill that chose either cutting our mission over here or cutting our budget. What did they have to worry about though? They were over in D.C., basically ransoming the military while we had to give an obsolete helmet was given to another soldier in my unit (875th Engineering Battalion) who had been shot in back of the head by a sniper (yet not only lived, but chose to come back and fight)and, week after week, I had to tell the guy "sorry man, but the new helmet isn't in yet."

We didn't get his helmet the whole time the budget bill fight was happening, and got it for him just weeks after the bill was passed.

This is what happens when Harry Reid, and his congressional majority plays politics with war. The losers in that game are never them. The losers are us.
