One Politician’s Guideline: Do Unto Others

By Marilyn Snyder

“Sticks and stones may break your bones,” but contrary to the old saying, Pete Aguilar, the name calling and misrepresentation in your campaign email hurts my heart.

Your campaign sent a fundrais­ing email stating: “He should be ashamed.

“Congressman Gary Miller has been endorsed by an extreme right-wing group that spews hate­ful rhetoric and even suggested that immigrants are like terror­ists.”

It went on to say that you wanted “…to fight back against Gary Miller’s Tea Party backers.”

What she really meant is that she and her husband have stayed married for longer than most of us have been alive and it wasn’t always easy. Or solid. Or even harmonious.
