Kaul's New Super PAC Draws Donor

February 7, 2012 ·

Photo by Basil Gilbert.Laurie Kittle of Springfield, Missouri really gets Donald Kaul's sense of humor. In response to his hilarious Destroy Our Future column, she published this letter to the editor in the Springfield News-Leader. It began by providing him with a "sweet scented rose." Thanks, Laurie!

"I’m on board, Kaul, with your “Destroy Our Future” Super PAC and am willing to donate 5 bazzillion dollars to your unlofty cause. (I don’t have 5 bazzillion dollars, but let’s not let that dissuade us.)

"You, sir, are a man who knows my own mind! I long for a revisitation to the 18th century and am currently fitting myself for a whale bone bodice, long wool skirt and itchy bloomers, of course I’ll have to grow my short hair cut out to waist length so I can mandatorily pin it up so it will not offend. I’ll pretty much look the same I figure.

"You said it masterfully and swift.May the sweet smell of unsuccess waft into the nostrils of the GOP this fall, breathe deep the unclean air and think how much more unclean it’ll be if they win and further deregulate or do away with the EPA completely. I can’t wait. Oh wait, yes I can."
