A direct copy and paste:

I'm a US Army Infantry veteran (RA 16 805 398; June 22, 1964 - June 21, 1967), currently receiving health care through VAMC; a pretty good 'public option'.

I am among the millions and millions of "PROGRESSIVES" that worked our asses off, putting the present administration in the White House. Progressives did it, NO ONE ELSE! We knocked on the doors. We made the phone calls. We chipped in the $5 and $10 and $20. PROGRESSIVES!

And Press Secy Gibbs just insulted the hell out of all of us. Just who the goddamned hell does this sonofabitch think he is?

He is nothing, and would be less, were it not for us, and every drop of sweat we shed.


We were "Fired-up/Ready to go." Now we're just fired up! It's past time for Gibbs to go.

(Important, see the explanation below, "What Most -- OBVIOUSLY -- Don Not Realize" -- how handles communications, and the reasoning behind the choice of language in the email.)

An "Old Army Vet" and liberal, qua liberal, with a passion for open inquiry in a neverending quest for truth unpoisoned by religious superstitions. Per Voltaire: "He who can lead you to believe an absurdity can lead you to commit an atrocity."
