The Power of the Bundt!

My congressman routinely sends out letters, hand-written with a Sharpie, on unlined paper in all caps about putting up a giant wall with armed guards across the entire Mexican border and other things I don't agree with.

I hate those letters. They get me all riled up. I occasionally write him back saying that the people would be better served if a giant wall with armed guards were build around his big fat head.

(Okay, so maybe I just imagine writing that. I actually don't even know how big his head is.)

So you can imagine how excited I was when Chiquita informed me that his office is IN THE BUILDING RIGHT NEXT TO OURS.

Because you know what this means, right? When I write to him I can just walk the letter over. And I'll bring a Bundt cake, because it's the neighborly thing to do. And we'll have a heart to heart about the important issues and he'll go back to Washington and vote like a reasonable human being and the world will be a better place.

Do not underestimate the power of the Bundt!

The worst part is that Dreier doesn't even keep the promises he makes. He usually goes and votes the opposite way the stuff he wrote to appease the John & Ken listeners.

Oh Rachel, I see great things coming out of this. I've always thought that California's problems would go away if they would just listen to your ideas. You seriously need to make that bundt cake!

PS - as a side not there's this comercial here in Oregon where they talk about how everyone uses the word "literally" wrong. It made me think of your post and I laughed. Oh I miss you!

Don't forget the potted plant in the middle of the bundt...

Will you promise to think about that scene in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" where Ian's parents bring a bundt to the big party?

I will never underestimate the power of the Bundt again. I have a fabulous recipe for a chocolate zucchini cake - that way you can appeal to his vegetal AND chocolate side. That's very California.

Good luck!

You must keep us updated on Operation Bundt. I think meeting politicians in person is the only way to get your message to them. I've emailed different local guys here and had absolutely no response. I found out one of them doesn't even know how to check his email. A bundt and a personal visit would definitely do the trick. And hand-written sharpie letters? Really?

If he doesn't straighten up, tell him to kiss your bundt! Kapow!!!

Stephanie--I'm not sure you will read this, since it is really old (I'm finally getting caught up on blogs) but if you (or anyone else does and wants to pass the message on) do, please send me that recipe!!!
It sounds delightful, and I'm totally Californian.
