I got this email the other day and had to share it with you. It’s the newest fund raising approach from the NRCC. It goes something like this:
Strawman this can’t be right.
Chairman Walden just emailed me a list of NRCC members for 2013, and I don't see your name. You've been one of the NRCC’s most loyal supporters in the past so I know this must be a mistake. It's not too late to join our efforts to create jobs, stop reckless Washington spending, and repeal the President's train wreck of a health care law: nrcc.org/renew. Please don't wait another moment. Renew your 2013 NRCC membership today with a gift of $45. And if you renew by tomorrow at midnight I will triple your donation, so your gift of $45 will have an impact of $135.” Thanks, John Boehner Speaker of the House
I attempted to respond, but the email came back to me, so I’ll share my response to Speaker Boehner with you.
Dear Speaker Boehner:
You have to be kidding me. You, of all people, have the unmitigated gall to ask me for money? You, who have basically done nothing but nuzzle up to the Serial Liar in Chief these past few years want me to donate to your cause? For what? So you can take the President on a golf trip where the two of you can snuggle and plot against the citizens of this country? What? You were going to take Mitch McConnell along on the trip? Sure!!! Why not? Invite John McCain and the four of you can play Canasta when you’re not showering together.
John, what you’re not getting here is those of us living in the Midwest are no longer enamored by you and those like you. We see you for what you are. You’re a RINO, John. You look like, talk like, act like and want to be a Democrat so you’ll be able to attend parties with all the cool kids in Washington. You may as well just come out of the closet and tell the world, “I’m really a Democrat!!!”
It was our hope in 2010 that, with you and McConnell at the helm, we would see some strength from our elected officials on the right. Instead we’ve witnessed the Republican Party doing their best impressions of Democrat Light. Hell, Nancy Pelosi has a bigger set than you do. She may be bat-crap crazy, but she gets the job done.
So, no John; I don’t have any spare change to pass along to you and yours. And I no longer bother listening to the B.S. that rolls off of your tongue. God knows where you’ve had it.
Maybe if we had someone like Pelosi on our team those of us on the right would have someone to believe in. As it is now, we would be better off having Sponge Bob and Patrick representing us than you and McConnell. The two of you are pathetic.
Oh, and while you’re at it; take Mark Kirk and Aaron Schock with you. They’re both as pathetic as you are.
