Dear John Letter



Dear John McCain; I am calling on you as a man of integrity and a man of your word, do whatever necessary to squelch the vicious rumors emanating from your staff.

Governor Palin has suffered enough from her disgraceful treatment in the "lower 48".

Anyone on your staff who tells or has told tales out of school of an unflattering nature to Sarah Palin should be fired immediately.

Of course it is too late to put the horse back in the barn, but I suggest demand that you go on national television (buying the time if necessary) and deny any wrong doing on Sarah Palin's part. And then fire off an apology to her for not allowing her to speak along with your concession speech.


I greatly admired your speech that night. Don't let these loose lipped harpies tarnish your image by being anything less than a gentleman in this sordid state of affairs.

Thank you so much,

Janet Crain

Not only has the vice-presidential candidate given a concession speech before, it was done as recently as 4 years ago:

Two of the most unforgettable concession speeches were delivered in the last decade, Connaughton says. In 2004, presidential candidate John Kerry's vice presidential nominee, John Edwards, spoke first. Instead of openly conceding, he proclaimed that he and Kerry would continue to fight for a better America, encouraging supporters to do the same. Then, Kerry gave his concession speech.

"You usually don't hear from the vice presidential candidate on the losing side first. That was unusual," she says.

This time we did not hear from her at all.

Great letter, but as the days pass and the hours go away, it seems to McCain is NOT going to come to her defense...

That last night in Arizona seemed very chilly between them...

He could not close the deal in March 2000, nor could he do so now...what a joke

Hate to break your heart, Sarah worshippers, but the vice-president candidate doesn't speak at the concession speech time. That's the presidential candidate's spot. Just like Joe Biden didn't speak at the Obama speech.

Then tell me why the Campaign honchos flew in a speech writer for Palin's speech, then changed their mind? She just wanted to compliment John McCain. And after all she did for the campaign she deserved to be able to do this.

Where is it written in stone that these old rules must be followed? Protocol did not stop Obama from addressing a huge crowd in Germany as though he were already a head of state.

Apparently we are living in a New Age now. Personally I feel like I'm in a parallel universe.

People just elected a man they know very little about. It will be interesting to watch the reaction when they realize what was in that coolaide.
