A couple of days ago I wrote about the letter Josh Derke, candidate for Michigan’s 93rd House District sent to the anti-gay, ragingly homophobic leader of the group “Public Advocate of the United States”. It was an epic, eloquent smack down and the piece has gone viral getting over 11,500 hits as of this morning. The cross-posted version at Daily Kos got an untold number of hits as it spent most of the day at the top of the Recommended List.
Josh now has a fundraising page up at JoshDerke.ruck.us.
Please stop over and drop some folding money into Josh’s tip jar so that he can defeat his Republican opponent. If nothing else, do it because his response to the homophobia and bigotry and intolerance and hatred of Eugene Delgaudio serves as an inspiration to us all when we are confronted with similar undeveloped, unevolved minds. If you haven’t read it, do yourself a favor and do it now HERE.
