DNC Executive Director Begs for $3 Donations to Fight GOP ‘False Attack’

Posted on | August 30, 2012 | 18 Comments

TAMPA, Florida
Years ago, I signed up for a Democrat e-mail list and this means I still get their fundraising e-mails — an endless source of amusement, getting a glimpse inside the rhetoric being spoonfed to the Democrat Party’s activist grassroots. We should not hate Patrick Gaspard, but rather pity him because, after all, he works for Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, the worst DNC chairman ever:

Friend —
Rep. Paul Ryan’s speech to the Republican Convention tonight wasn’t grounded in reality.
He leveled false attack after false attack against the President, while neglecting to give a single idea for how to move our country forward.
He also didn’t mention that the Romney-Ryan plan would turn Medicare into a voucher program to pay for tax cuts for millionaires, or that their promise to repeal Obamacare would take away access to health care for 32 million Americans. And don’t even get me started on how they want to end a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions.
If this extreme Republican vision for our country scares you as much as it does me, donate $3 or more now to help Democrats fight back before tomorrow’s fundraising deadline.
There are only 68 days left until Election Day — we’re in the home stretch, and every day between now and then is critically important.
What’s more — we have our most important fundraising deadline yet tomorrow at midnight. And how much we raise before then will determine whether or not Democrats have the resources to beat Romney, Ryan, and Republicans across the country.
It’s time for us to put our money where our mouths are and call Romney and Ryan out on their blatant lies and misrepresentations. But we need your help to do that.
Donate $3 or more today:
Patrick Gaspard
Executive Director
Democratic National Committee

P.S. — I’m serious — it’s game time. Donate now.

It’s pathetic, isn’t it? Maybe I should try this Democrat “just gimme $3 pretty please” fundraising gimmick. Or maybe not, because the expenses here in Tampa are outrageous: $10 for a cab ride here, a $10 sandwich there, and pretty soon it adds up to real money.

So go ahead and hit the tip jar for $20 or $50 or $100, just to piss off those poor idiot Democrats who — confused by their party’s fundraising rhetoric — are under the impression that all Republicans are greedy rich fat cats. Five or ten bucks would be appreciated if that’s all you can afford, but whatever you give, I promise in return to do all I can ” to end a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions,” because I’m just an evil woman-hating Republican that way.

    You won me over with that statement.

    Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, the worst DNC chairman ever

    I take great exception to your referring to DWS as chairMAN, Stacy. I find it insulting and demeaning.

    And I know that I speak for men everywhere when I say that.

    I suggest chairthing instead.

    PS: ::clink::

    Yes, Debbie, call me when the need to stop the extremists hits $5. I don’t get excited about $3 extremists.

    I seem to recall there is an OMB study that says that Obamacare will leave 30+ million uninsured, so why do it?

    Debbie Wasserman-Schulz is the BEST DNC Chairman ever!

    And with the best hair, too!

    Stacey, the reason they are asking for $3 dollar donations is transparently obvious: each one is an anonymous on line donor that can be used to launder the unverified and illegal donations collected through their donation site. They didn’t do this in 2008 and had to use obviously fake names.

    From Innsmouth no doubt.

    Alright Stacy, you talked me into it. Oh yeah, you’ve also just been totally linked.
