What's Wrong With This Letter?

A letter to the editor in the Lebanon (Pa) Daily News:
As a Republican and strong McCain supporter in 2000, I was disappointed and saddened in 2004 when McCain permanently traded in his maverick credentials and sold out his principles to support George W. Bush. I now find it equally disturbing to see him gamble our security and future with a reckless choice for a running mate.

Gov. Sarah Palin clearly has a bright future in politics. She may even have the depth and diversity of experience to be a vice-presidential candidate four years from now.

The McCain ticket, with all of its newfound "freshness" and despite all of the claims, has quickly devolved into the politics-as-usual that we have come to expect in the last eight years. McCain and Palin quickly emerged from the rhetoric of their convention as the uniters of dividers.

I talk politics with a lot of people from all walks of life. I find it compelling that many of the ordinary Republicans I talk to understand that their families cannot afford another four years like the last eight. We all deserve better.

You just don't understand. Palin is pretty. Where are your values?!
Consider all those television viewers. They can always turn off the sound. So what if we have another 4 or 8 years of a deteriorating nation. George Washington, Roosevelt, Truman and Clinton made our nation strong enough to withstand the destruction caused by these pathetic, greedy, incompetent Republicans. We'll survive.

I'm glad you put this in. I originally saw it reported elsewhere as Lebanon, NH, and Lebanon County, NH. There is no Lebanon County, NH. This clears up the mystery for me.
