Mike Huebsch Really has this Constituent Services Thing Down Pat

This is from a hilarious exchange between a tea bagging organizer and state Rep. Mike Huebsch of La Crosse (who was like the majority leader or Speaker of the Assembly or something at one point):

Huebsch's E-Update March 19, 2010

Why aren't you drumming up support for things such as SJR-62??? It will give WI residents the constitutional right to choose their own health care coverage. Kapanke says he supports it unless he is just making promises he doesn't intend to keep!

You call yourself a conservative but you don' always seem to support conservative
It's your standard I'm-angry-and-you're-not-doing-enough communique, but rather than just sending Mr. Speed a polite thank-you-for-sharing-your-concerns form letter, Huebsch get loses his cool (emphasis added below):

I don't support conservative values?! You honestly believe I'm contributing to the the debacle that is happening in Madison and Washington? Before you comment again without knowing what you're talking about, I would suggest you do some homework.

Of course I support SJR 62 and its goals. And so does Sen. Kapanke. When I served as Assembly Speaker in 2007 and 2008, I scheduled a similar resolution for a vote. The resolution was in response to Democrat efforts to pass Healthy Wisconsin in our state and it was approved by Assembly Republicans. It was killed by Democrats who controlled the state Senate.

I am also supporting efforts to authorize the Attorney General to take legal action against the federal government.
If you have ideas for how to convince the Democrats who control both the state Assembly and state Senate to schedule SJR 62 for a vote or a resolution authorizing the AG to act, I'd be glad to discuss those with you.

That's right, you ignorant douchebag! When you speak to Mike Huebsch you better know what you're talking about or shut the fuck up!

Anyway, Mr. Tea Bagger was so put off by Huesch's response that he sent him a lengthy, rambling diatribe about Scott Walker and some other stuff. You can read the whole thing -- as well as find copies of the original emails -- here.
