After Mine: When the Readers Have their Say
Q. Why dont you understand that while Judy Baar Topinka is not a conservative, neither is she a liberal but is in the center, basis her opposition to partial birth abortion and support for concealed carry?
A. You have a point if, in fact, Topinka carries those views.Youll forgive me if I have trouble accepting what she says as her views ever since on my radio program as state Republican chairman, she flatlyvehemently and whole-heartedlyrefused to endorse Peter Fitzgerald for reelection, this on a 50,000-watt station that reaches not just the entire state but the Midwest region as well. Then when the heat goes on she tells the media that I should take the wax out of my ears, a dig at my impaired hearing purportedly stemming from my senile decrepitude. I admire this personal roughing up as it comes from a true brawler; shell need all those tactics when the brawl gets going as I imagine it certainly should after Wednesday. Her denial in the face of truth is outrageous, cavalier, the study of which is truly for the metaphysicians. Steve Brown, Mike Madigans guy was on the show as well and heard it. Does she think were so gullible as to doubt our earsand others when mine are failingand which is on tape? So, sorry, this stuff about shes really against partial-birth abortion and for concealed carry coming from her claque doesnt carry waterand even if it comes from her own lips, given her track record. Sorry.
