Dear Representative Metcalfe,

I am very pleased with your record on the Second Amendment. Really. I appreciate it. You’re a true leader on the issue, which is more than you can say for a lot of reps. But man, on other issues, you talk like you just escaped from the insane asylum.

Is it smart politics to be the only State Representative to vote against Domestic Violence Prevention month? Because of some imagined gay agenda?┬áIs it smart politics to call veterans who don’t agree with you traitors? And then doubling down?

No, it isn’t, and it makes it much harder for Second Amendment advocates to defend you. Why give your political enemies this kind of ammunition to use against you? What constituency are you hoping to please with this nonsense?

Get serious. Otherwise we’re not going to be able to defend you next time you’re politically vulnerable. Which may be very soon if this crap keeps up.

    You know, a rabid dog can make a decent property defender for awhile, but sooner or later you have to deal with all the baggage.

    There are some people who you might agree with, but you sometimes really don’t actually want on your side. I would nominate Daylin Leach on the opposite side of the spectrum as an ally on gay marriage. I’m happy he’s for it and pushing it in the legislature (where the issue belongs if it is going to be more widely accepted by the population, IMO), but he is an absolute asshole on so many other fronts, especially on Twitter.
