Desparate Democrats

From the fund raising e-mails I have been getting lately, I am starting to think that the Democrats are not too confident they are going to win this November. First there’s Donna Brazile.

David —

If you’re hoping that Democrats win the Senate, I’ve got to talk straight with you: Hope isn’t enough anymore.

***Swing State Polling Update, 7/30/2012***
Elizabeth Warren (D) 40 Scott Brown (R) 38 (MassINC, 7/22)
Sherrod Brown (D) 46 Josh Mandel (R) 42 (Rasmussen, 7/18)

The election is just 99 days away, and if we wait any longer to act, we could lose the Senate. The FEC deadline is in 24 hours and we’re $250,000 away from our goal–can you contribute $5? Sherrod Brown’s lead is practically gone after getting outspent 3-to-1. Elizabeth Warren’s words are being twisted and distorted, and now she’s in a dead heat.

Republicans are stooping to the lowest lows to win. They’re using dirty voter suppression tactics and distorting the records of progressives, and it’s working.

We’ve got a choice. We can hope for the best and watch Republicans take over government. Or we can fight for progressives like Elizabeth Warren and Sherrod Brown.

I am surprised that Elizabeth Speaks with Forked Tongue Warren is even with Scott Brown. I would have thought that with her embarrassing claims to be a Native American would have put her far behind. This is Massachusetts though. They kept that murderer Ted Kennedy in office.

Joe Biden is blunt.

David —

The only way we win this election is by each of us stepping up to do our part.

I’m going to be blunt: Before tomorrow’s FEC deadline, the campaign needs your support more than ever. We’ve been outraised by Mitt Romney and the Republicans — by tens of millions of dollars — for two straight months.

But while their money comes mostly from very wealthy donors, corporations, and special interests, our campaign is powered by you. That’s a point of pride.

He forgot to mention the unions and Hollywood celebrities.

James Carville is joining in.

Fuck —

I wish I had good news for you.

I want to tell you that President Obama has a second term in the bag. I want to tell you that the Koch Brothers are giving up their plot to buy the election.

But here’s where things really stand: We’re gonna have to go through hell and high-water to win this damn thing. It’s gonna be hard. Every big-oil billionaire and Republican Super PAC is throwing the kitchen sink at President Obama.

If we don’t fight back, it’ll be over long before November.

That all sounds like good news to me. Did you notice that their troubles are due to evil, shadowy, big money donors like oil billionaires and the Koch Brothers? It couldn’t possible be due to the terrible record of President Obama.

Last and least, there is Al Gore.


The last thing we want is the Republican Party — a party that’s been hijacked by an extremist fringe — to win the White House and tighten its grip on Congress.

That would spell disaster for our economy and our environment.

Karl Rove and the ultra-conservative Koch brothers are pouring millions of dollars into this campaign. Democrats are depending on the individual support we get from people like you.

To paraphrase Inigo Montoya, the Democrats keep using that word extreme. I do not think it means what they think it means. I would say that the party with the candidate who promised to fundamentally transform the United States, who voted against the born alive act, who fought the Catholic Church over contraception coverage, and who routinely disparages small businesses could be considered just a little extreme in some circles. In fact I would say that the Democrats have been turning more and more extreme since at least the McGovern campaign.
