I just got done reading Lee Stranahan’s excellent open letter to President Obama on healthcare, and I felt inspired. I’ve read lots of “open letter” posts over the years, and I think I’m ready to do one of my own, really put my own spin on it.
So, here it is, my Open Letter to Sarah Palin:
Dear Governor Palin,
How are you? I’m fine. It’s really hot here in New Jersey. I bet it’s not that hot in Alaska.
So, anyway, did you hear, I recently got a freelance writing gig with Asylum? They’re kind of like Maxim magazine, but on the internet.
I’ve also been going to the White House a lot, which is pretty cool. Barack says “Hi!” (Just kidding, but I’m sure he would if I asked him if he wanted to say “Hi.” He’s the kind of guy who says “hi.”)
You’re probably wondering why I’m writing you this letter. See, my friend, Lee, wrote a really good open letter to the President, and I wanted to try one, too.
Actually, you could really help me out here, because I’ve always wondered if the people who get open letters written to them actually read them. We should have a code, like I’ll send you a tweet that says “Ren,” and if you read my letter, you reply “Stimpy.” If you didn’t, then just say “Easy E” or “Dr. Dre.” Your choice.
If you don’t want to, that’s cool. I can find out from the President’s friend, Robert, if he read Lee’s letter, but this would be quicker.
Oh, I just rented “The International.” It was awesome, you should check it out.
Anyway, that’s pretty much it. Well, if you see my friend, John, tell him I said “Hi.” I haven’t been able to get him on the phone.
Thanks, and I hope you have a good weekend.
