Letter to the Editor: Is column author for real?


I could not help but comment on Andy Schmookler’s article “Bob Goodlatte, worse than I thought.”

Boy, Mr. Schmookler sounded like a “leftist” with his descriptions of Virginia’s Congressman Bob Goodlatte and the Repubican Party. I laughed when I read the Biblical/Christian words such as Bob Goodlatte’s “current sins,” “selling his soul,” “forces of darkness” and “morally bankrupt.” Is Andy for real?

I thought “leftists” embrace socialism and populism?

These ideas were based largely upon the writings of Karl Marx. He was an atheist (sorry, it’s true).

Thank God Bob Goodlatte was elected to office and not Andy Schmookler.
