Roskam Sends Postcard with Teeny Tiny Press

Thursday, a positive piece of mail came from Congressman Peter Roskam.

The typical strategy of campaigns is to run a positive introduction message, then go negative on one’s opponent, finally, returning to a positive message.

There was no way I could keep up with the negative mailers against Democrat Sean Casten.

There were pretty much print versions of Roskam’s negative television ads.

What struck me the most about the closing positive piece was how very small the printed message on its back is.

Read it?

Not a chance.

The address side of Peter Roskam’s postcard.

The back of what is probably Peter Roskam’s final mailing with type so small in an italic type face virtually no one will read it.

  1. Dumb. He should have exposed Casten for his gay love affair with Dan Savage

    “Democrat Sean Casten embraced anti-Christian bully Dan Savage in a debate Monday evening against incumbent Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) over the seat for the 6th congressional district of Illinois.

    Casten, challenged to defend some of the harsh rhetoric he has used in his campaign, and some of the controversial figures he has embraced, refused to dissociate himself from Savage (at 9:27 in the Facebook video of the debate).

    “The person I embraced — and I will stand to this day — is Dan Savage, who has been a voice for the LGBT community, and particularly for the It Gets Better project, of teens who were considering suicide.”

    Savage, a talented sex advice columnist, founded the “It Gets Better” organization to help gay and lesbian teenagers overcome bullying by peers.

    Ironically, Savage then became a bully himself, publicly shaming Christian teenagers at a high school journalism conference in April 2012, abusing his position at the podium to mock their beliefs.

    In a video of the event (below), Savage trashed the Bible as “bullshit”:

    The Bible — we’ll just talk about the Bible for a second. People often point out that they can’t help with the anti-gay bulling, because it says right there in Leviticus, it says right there in Timothy, it says right there in Romans, that being gay is wrong. We can learn to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about gay people the same way we have learned to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about shellfish, about slavery, about dinner, about farming, about menstruation, about virginity, about masturbation — we ignore bullshit in the Bible about all sorts of things.

    Some students cheered, but others walked out in protest. Savage later taunted those who left: “So you can tell the Bible guys in the hall that they can come back now, because I’m done beating up the Bible.”

    He went on to call the students “pansy-ass” for protesting, then offered a fake “apology” for hurting anyone’s feelings, adding, “I have a right to defend myself and to point out the hypocrisy of people who justify anti-gay bigotry by pointing to the Bible and insisting we must live by the code of Leviticus on this one issue, and no other.””
