Nice Guys Finish Last

Memorandum to the President

From: Leo Durocher, Dugout

Mr. President:

You are being savaged by the Democrats, by the media and every left-wing Marxist kook infesting the United States. Yeah, I know, that's what they do, they can't help themselves, but the point I want to make is that you don't have to sit there and take it.

I know you're a nice guy, and you don't want to say anything unpleasant about any of your fellow Americans, but as I once said while still among you folks down there, "Nice guys finish last."

In addition to the surly Democrats, who can't bring themselves to accept their loss of control of the Congress and the presidency, and the usual malcontents who think that the federal government should cater to all their needs, whims and desires, you have a nest of snakes slithering around in the serpentarium known as the federal bureaucracy. And they are out to get you.

We don't see any of these types up here, but we know all about them from our time in your world. And the one thing we all know is that you can't let them get away with that kind of malicious criminality that got their predecessors forever barred from this heavenly ballpark.

It isn't enough to satisfy yourself with the notion that all this skullduggery is just temporal minor league stuff and someday it will all end and the bad guys will be sent to the showers where there's no cold water to cool them off.

What they are doing is endangering the life, liberty and any chance of happiness for your fellow citizens, and it's your job to stop them.

In plain language, Mr. President, it's time for you to put the gloves on and come out slugging. That means fighting fire with fire, to mix metaphors, but I'm sure you understand what I'm saying.

From the very beginning of your administration you turned a blind eye to the blatant criminality of the Clinton administration, allegedly in the hope that if you let bygones be bygones, the Democrats would not stand in the way of your policies and agenda.

When that proved a forlorn hope, you continued to allow your sworn enemies to walk away from the jail time they earned as a result of their criminal activities.

Day after day the Democrats and their allies in the Marxist media tell outrageous lies about you and members of your administration, twisting the facts until they have no resemblance to the truth.

"Bush lied us into war; Bush broke the law in the NSA terrorist monitoring operation; Bush authorized the leaking of national security secrets" ... it goes on and on, with nary a peep from the White House and no sign of justified outrage from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The American people love a fighter, especially one who is on the ropes but refuses to give up and is willing to trade punch for punch.

What they don't love is a wimp. (Up here we like to recall the words of Christ when he said that he would vomit out those who are lukewarm – and while he was talking about those who haven't got the guts to follow him all the way to the cross, his words also could apply to those who either won't or can't stand up for what is right and just down there in your world.)

Right now a lot of your fellow Republicans are aghast at your failure to come down hard on this McCarthy woman (up here Joe McCarthy is demanding that she change her name to something more appropriate, such as Hiss or Arnold), who appears to have broken the law in divulging secrets to the media in violation of her sworn oath.

She should be sitting in a jail cell. Instead she's being lionized by the media and her fellow Democrats. Your administration is just letting her rest on her phony laurels as a sainted whistleblower instead of the traitor she is alleged to be.

Put her on trial and let her try to prove she is not.

Writing in the Canadian Free Press, ex-cop John Burtis put his finger on it when he recalled that it's a rerun of the shameful Sandy Berger matter.

Wrote Burtis, "The walls began to crack when absolutely nothing was done to Sandy Berger, a former National Security Advisor to Bill Clinton, who damn well knew better than to steal classified documents by secreting them in his socks and underwear, claiming he forgot all about them as his defense, and took a walk for his pains."

It should be noted that Sandy Berger once hired this McCarthy woman, who is one of that shadowy bunch in the CIA who loathe you and will do whatever they can to ruin you even if it means taking down the United States along with you.

You are fully aware for the facts in this case and of Mrs. McCarthy's background.

You know she's part of a cabal that includes Valerie Plame and her discredited husband, Joe Wilson, and Rand Beers, another Clintonista – a crew out to sabotage you.

You know that McCarthy and Joe Wilson go way back together, that they served on the National Security Council at the same time and both specialized in African affairs.

You know that Plame gave $1,000 to Al Gore's campaign, that her husband worked for the Kerry campaign, that McCarthy gave $2,000 to the Kerry campaign in March 2004 and also gave $5,000 to the Democratic Party of Ohio on in October 2004.

Her husband, Michael McCarthy, is reported to have given $2,000 to Kerry on the same day his wife did.

I could go on and on, but I'm sure your understand what I'm saying.

Elements in your bureaucracy in the CIA and the State Department are out to get you, and they are doing a pretty good job of it. They have to go.

CIA Director Porter Goss, another of their targets, is on the job at Langley and getting it done. You need to get Condi doing likewise at State. St. Patrick is telling everybody up here that Condi needs to follow his example and drive the snakes out.

As far as the drumbeat of slander, deception, distortion and flat-out lying is concerned, you need to set up a war room down there in the White House and take the fight to the enemy. I know that's not easy since the mainstream media manage to ignore anything even slightly damaging to the Democratic Party, but the job can be done and you have to see that it is done.

Up here we've known for a long time what a demonic shell game Marxism is; it's your job down there to preach that from the rooftops. It's your job to tell the American people that there is no longer a Democratic Party.

That proud old political party has been captured by the Marxists. It is a Marxist party plain and simple. It is dedicated to tightening the Marxist noose around the necks of the American people.

It chants a seductive refrain, Satan's promise that "Ye shall be as gods" if only you'll surrender your lives, liberty and property to the state and allow unborn babies to be butchered, men to marry men, and women to marry women.

They will do anything to win the opportunity to revive the Marxist dream. The job of preventing that is yours, and the time is now. I'm not asking you to stop being a nice guy – just that you recognize evil for what it is, evil, and do everything you can to defeat it.

I'm not asking you to be the kind of unpleasant guy I often was down there. After all, when I left your world I had to spend a lot of time in the minors before they let me come up here to the ultimate Major League.

I just want you to be a warrior for the good and an enemy of the bad.

Get to it, Mr. President. All of us up here are rooting for you. Don't finish last – because if you do, the nation will also lose.

God Bless you.

Your Fan,

Leo the Lip
