From our Fan Mail From Some Flounder(ing Campaigns) desk
Well the Missus went to the mailbag today and out poured a letter with the return address ANN ROMNEY and the Missus turned to the hardworking staff and said, “Here – you deal with this.”
So we, dutifully, did.
And what the hardproxying staff discovered inside was – wait for it: we’re just opening the envelope now – a letter that begins this way [close-captioned for the Romney-impaired]:
Even though America has lost its way these past few years, I have not lost my faith in America.
[Yeah, $250 million in assets will do that for you.]
Like my husband, Mitt, I believe in America.
[As long as it doesn't include Barack Obama as president.]
This is not just a campaign slogan — it is a deep-seated belief that comes from growing up with the best America has to offer: strong families, strong communities, strong faith, and a strong work ethic born of a sense of personal responsibility.
[In other words, a privileged upbringing. And yes, it is just a campaign slogan.]
But let’s cut to the nut graf:
Would you do me a favor and consider supporting the RNC’s important 2012 efforts with a contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, or even $1,000?
Do you a favor? What – is the Missus related to you?
Hey – do yourself a favor, Ann. Stop sending letters to the Missus.
And oh, yeah – all you GOP phonebankers with caller IDs like Defeat Obama, you can stop contacting the Missus ten times a day, too.
She’s a registered Democrat.
Move along. Nothing to collect here.
