    I sent letters off to Wu, Merkley, and Wyden regarding the NRA's brief on the McDonald case:

    So far I've gotten two very different responses:

    First from Wu ( http://fingolfen.blogspot.com/2009/12/wu-responds-on-mcdonald.html )

    I was honestly surprised at how positive the tone was in Wu's statement. Whether he acts on it is TBD.

    Unfortunately I wasn't surprised by Merkley's "response" ( http://fingolfen.blogspot.com/2009/12/merkley-responds-on-mcdonald.html )

    What a party tool...

    That is surprising coming from Wu. I have never had a positive response from him.

    Merkley..........well. We can always hope Oregon will wake up before the next election.

    Do you honestly beieve those responses can from Wu? It was probably some groupthink college student-intern with less than 25 years of real life experience who wrote the replies.

    Sure - Wu and Merkley have a whole staff working for them, but they're still responsible for the content of any communication coming out of their office. Did Wu personally read my letter and personally respond? Probably not, but I'm sure he's gotten several letters, and at least his office actually responded to the actual issue I raised as opposed to getting the generic form letter.

    I do hope you are going to further pursue Merkley as he requested.

    Merkley is a mindless tool of the Liberal agenda..............

    I was a little surprised to find the first response being from Wu. It's likely but hot air, but i can hope that he's on the fence now at least.

    Merkley's response should be more like:

    "Well, now that I have been indoctrinated, drank the koolaid and learned how not to answer questions, I can better answer your questions with vague, useless drivel that is meaningless and non-committal.

    Thanks,
    Have a nice day!"

    He is an attorney isn't he? Probably already had that mastered.
