I find I ain't so completely powerless

Well, there may be a silver linin' in this Puritan Gestapo* scenario situation, after all. After the proverbial shoe fell Friday, after the initial shock and the scramble to get the offendin' blog hidden as fast as I could and spendin' almost all night writin' and editin' that page that is there to greet anyone sent there by my enemies and such, I have been down and have been runnin' here and there tryin' to marshal all of my supporters to repair as much of the damage as I could. Well, yesterday, someone reminded me that the historical and legendary lawyer from the area durin' the moonshine days whose acts and life I admired so much was his own man also, so who cares if some people did not like what I had to say or the words I used. That made me feel very much better. Then today, I was told to call another person, one of the most prominent people in town, the Sunday School teacher of almost all the major figures around that go to the Methodist Church, because he wanted to talk to me. Thankfully, I already got the lead that he was on my side in the ordeal. If he had not been on my side, I probably had very little chance of winnin'. I ain't gonna quit no matter what. I got nuthin' to lose except the election, and it ain't gonna be over for me until the votes are counted. Over the last few days, I have found that I do still have a few good supporters here and there Well, I call the guy and the very first thing he tells me is to tell this fellow who asked me to withdraw from the race to kiss my ass** He said he did not think it was all the smart of me to publicly use some of the words I have been accused of usin', but he finds he uses them himself on occasion and if the person who wanted me to withdraw for usin' such words thought he was in charge of the morals of Republicans, he should be runnin' for some national office or somethin'. He also told me to tell the guy that if he heard anythin' about him spreadin' stuff around about me, that he would not be the head of anythin' in the area for very long. Ya see, the guy was probably the first person in the area to openly confess to bein' a Republican and his currently ailin' wife was the area Republican chairperson for years and years. Being the Sunday School teacher for the town's Methodist Church and bein' the foremost Republican in town, he possesses a lot of persuasion. I am feelin' much better now, I tell ya -- very much better. End of report.

**His words, exactly.
