Best-Letter-Ever

The City Weeky published this letter by Brooke Heath of Park City: 'Fulton states, “supporting a flawed politician with good principles is no vice.” It is a vice when the flawed politician degenerates from alternative voice to ineffective crusader to counterproductive zealot who is an embarrassment to the cause. Fulton argues former Mayor Deedee Corradini “placated the establishment,” yet Anderson has essentially lived off of her leftovers: Olympics, light rail, Gateway, etc. Obviously her progressive collaboration was more effective than his manipulated martyrdom. Apparently, Fulton and the Rockettes prefer ideologically pure impotence over an effective leadership. The only thing Anderson has excelled at is verbalizing contempt of white Mormon Republicans. That is not “diversity,” it is not “alternative voices,” it is not “progressive.” It is just hate—the mirror image of contempt for ethnic Democratic Jews, which is a vice.'

Ms. Heath is right on. Its about time people in this state stop confusing Anti-Mormonism with Democratic Party views.

The Democratic party has always been (or has tried to be viewed as) the party that crusades for equality. Rocky and the "Rockettes" as Ms. Heath puts it, sure make respectable Dems look hypocritical with Rocky's hate mongering.
