Self Affirmations by Blaine Luetkemeyer

Via the Post-Dispatch, I see Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer is hoping to capitalize on his recent infamy with a request for campaign donations. For his own sake, I hope his campaign was able to target the request to only fellow small-minded persons, because this is the sort of blast email people actually read, and actually costs votes.

Like any good Republican victimized by facts and critical analysis, Blaine finds honor in the attention paid to him and his moronic legislation. He also continues to lie about the projected costs of the federal cap-and-trade legislation.

Today the liberal St. Louis Post-Dispatch honored me with an editorial “attacking” me because I am a pro-business conservative who will fight blatant waste of your tax dollars.

Last week, I introduced a piece of legislation in Congress to stop the continued fleecing of American tax dollars by the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This U.N. bureaucracy receives millions of dollars a year in your taxes to promote a liberal agenda of taxing businesses and forcing us to ride bicycles to work. The work done by this group has been disputed by hundreds of scientists around the world, but is consistently used by Al Gore and Nancy Pelosi when they call for new taxes and regulations on Missouri families and businesses. Being a common sense conservative, I called it “junk science," and filed a bill to prevent your tax dollars from paying for it. Apparently my plain spoken Missouri thoughts were too much for the liberals at the Post-Dispatch. Liberals do not understand that cap and trade is possibly the most destructive piece of legislation that the 111th Congress will consider. This bill would impose a massive $3,000 per household per year energy tax on Missouri families, cost the 9th District thousands of jobs, and raise gas prices at the pump by up to 77 cents per gallon.

Will you help me by contributing to our campaign and show the liberal St. Louis Post Dispatch they are WRONG? You can click here to make a generous contribution of $35, $50 or even $100. Your grassroots support will help me to continue to fight Nancy Pelosi and radical liberals by opposing their job killing agenda.

Liberals led by San Francisco’s Nancy Pelosi and President Obama are determined to implement every harebrained liberal idea they have EVER thought of. Regrettably, these efforts will impose massive job killing tax increases -- more than double the massive national debt and weaken our country for decades to come.

Please send a message to the liberal St. Louis Post-Dispatch and Speaker Nancy Pelosi they are wrong by contributing $35, $50, or $100 today.

Thank you,


P.S. Your donation today will help me continue to fight against the liberal attacks.

The Post-Dispatch's response is fabulous too, but for different reaons.

We are of two minds about this. Contributions might better be spent to provide Mr. Luetkemeyer an education in science. But if he’s defeated by someone with critical thinking skills, what will we do for fun after we ride our bicycles to work?

I can't ever remember being this proud of my Congressman.
