This was written during Senator John Kerry’s campaign for the Presidency.

Dear Mr. Imus,

I am about your age (61) and have been listening to you since you came from Cleveland to NY. I still get a chuckle thinking about Billy Sol Hargis (sp?) and the Church of the Gooey Death. Thank you for the memories.

I also thank you for supporting John Kerry for president. As a Kerry supporter myself, I am pleased that “he is your man,”  but it’s also obvious that you would be happier with someone like Joe Biden. Frankly, so would I. But while I think that John Kerry has run a so-so campaign and that he talks too much, I think he will be a wonderful president at a time when America sure needs one. I genuinely fear another four years of the current administration.

With George W. Bush, we have a leader who’s infallible view of good and evil, who’s ability to avoid facts that get in the way of his “vision,” and who’s willingness to send American sons, daughters, mothers and fathers into combat believing that there will be “no casualties” borders on criminally incompetent. This irrational behavior makes sense only in the context of his “born-again,” evangelical beliefs which, when checked at the church door, are of little consequence. However, when those beliefs are allowed to guide the foreign policy of the most powerful nation on earth, they have the potential to thrust the world into the abyss of worldwide cultural and religious war.

Christian evangelicals may argue that such conflict is the inevitable playing out of Biblical prophecy; they are entitled to their beliefs. But for the sake of good men and women everywhere who do not share them…and I have no doubt that you are one of them…this obsession with Armageddon must be exposed for what it is before it, indeed, becomes prophecy, not of the Biblical variety, but one tragically self-fulfilling.

Mr. Imus, what I am asking is that, with the two days left that you are on the air before the votes are counted, you offer your listeners a more committed endorsement of John Kerry. The stakes are so high and you can make a very important difference.

Kindest regards,

Brian McCabe
