As the hardworking staff recently noted, for reasons unknown we’ve been plunged lately into a Republican fundraising emailstrom.
Representative samples include this missive from Karl Rove (subject line: TIGHT AS A TICK):
President Obama’s approval ratings keep dropping, no reliable poll shows battleground Senate Democrats with over 50% support, and GOP voters are excited to cast their ballots in 41 days. The midterm environment is toxic for Democrats, yet there’s a chance Republicans may not take the Senate. Why?
The Democrats have a huge money advantage. Last month alone, Democrats outraised Republicans by $1.6 million dollars.
They intend to outspend Republicans between Labor Day and Election Day, having bought $109 MILLION in television ads already, compared to $85 million for GOP candidates and their allies so far.
We gotta ask: Who exactly is tight as a tick? Republican donors? Senate races? Karl Rove? Damned if we know. And the email never says.
Regardless, here’s our favorite GOPanhandling email (subject line: Pelosi ALL in):
1. Yesterday, we broke the news that [House Minority Leader Nancy] Pelosi recently compared Republicans to the terrorist state ISIS.
2. Then we learned that her campaign machine, the Democratic Congressional Committee, has just been approved for a $10 million loan (!).
Now it’s unclear who in their right mind would loan liberals that kind of money . . .
Uh, maybe the same people who gave House Republicans a $20 million line of credit?
We’re not just through the looking glass here, folks. These idiots (and that includes Democrats) have shattered the looking glass.
Your reflections go here.
