Got an email from the National Republican Senate Committee….
After months of predicting GOP victory, the Washington Post’s statistical model now shows a 51 percent chance that the Democrats hang on.
The answer is simple – the Democrats are spending over $40 million more than the Republicans in battleground races. For weeks, our candidates have been holding on, despite a relentless barrage of negative ads – but we need your help now or it’s over.
I know that times are tough, that’s why we’re fighting so hard to bring new leadership that will turn things around. But, if we don’t rally together now – as a team – then we will lose as individuals.
Can we count on you?
And then it asks me to click on some links to donate various amounts of money.
My honest response to this email: Maybe if you hadn’t spent millions and millions of dollars trashing fiscal conservatives so you could keep your old worn out fossils on the ticket, you wouldn’t have to be begging for money now.
And by what possible definition of the words “new” and “leadership” are Mitch McConnell and Thad Cochran “new leadership?”
I get into a lot of arguments with people who tell me I have to support the Republicans, because if I don’t, the Democrats will win. And my only response to that is “So?”
I saw this article a few days back about how the GOP was going to “mend fences” with Tea Party fiscal conservatives so they could get their votes in November. Noticeably absent from the article was any effort whatsoever by the GOP to mend fences with Tea Party fiscal conservatives.
If they think they can win without our votes, then they can also win without our money and effort.
