Swift enough for you?

Swift enough for you?

My mother liked to remind us of Jane Ace's aphorism, "Time wounds all heels". And so it does, sometimes by making pre-printed letters out-of-date before they are received.

I just got a letter from the Democratic National Committee with a full-color, signed photo of the Kedward team. I should say, "Registered Photo Number 160920059 Exclusively for" me. The letter of course, asks for money to help the Democrats
reclaim the government from a band of harsh ideologues, end George Bush's willful control of the White House [yes, the petulant twits actually complain that the President is running the White House], end Dick Cheney's smug and arrogant tactics of misinformation [I'd say You're another, but I'm not sure what it means] and send the Bush crew of Rumsfeld, Ashcroft and Rove out of office.
The letter goes on to say that Kedward are "campaigning with untiring stamina", and closes with this gem: "Your swift response to this plea for help will enable us to stay strong in the fight."

You'd think they'd had all the Swift responses they could handle.
