Republican response to Rove?

Atrios pointed me in the direction of First draft today. I’m urging everyone who reads this post to read Karl Rove’s most recent quotes concerning “libruls” and then send First Draft’s email to their Republican representatives in Congress.

Rove:

Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers

Let me just put this in fairly simple terms: Al Jazeera now broadcasts the words of Senator Durbin to the Mideast, certainly putting our troops in greater danger. No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals.

First Draft:

Dear Rep./Sen. [Name],

According to the New York Times, presidential advisor Karl Rove recently said that liberals in this country want our troops to die.

As a liberal, I find this deeply offensive. I don’t feel this is the sort of rhetoric our country needs during wartime, and I resent the idea that I want any of our troops to come to harm. In making such statements Mr. Rove is not only impugning my politics, he is degrading my basic humanity.

As a constituent of yours, I would like to know, [sir/madam], if you agree with Mr. Rove’s statements. Does he speak for you?

Sincerely,

[your name]

As soon as I get a response from Saxby Chambliss or Phil Gingrey, I’ll share it.
