Eff Them and the Horse They Rode in On

Every day my email inbox has several fundraising messages about how dire the Senate runoff races are in Georgia. We’re doomed, they claim, unless you pony up a donation! Ow, ow, ow . . . (I hear this in Sam Kinison’s voice). There is a veritable fundraising panic, that if I do not donate today, my lack of effort will doom the Senate and the country to Republican control of the Senate. Ow, Ow, Ow . . . !

Then I read in a news clip:

Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock blew past fundraising records, which were set just earlier this year, by raising more than $100 million each in the course of only two months for their races against GOP incumbent Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler. And much like Democratic candidates around the country earlier this year, the record hauls came mostly from small-dollar donors, in this case likely animated by a consequential double runoff election that could tip the balance of the Senate toward Democrats.

“Blew passed fund raising records”? WTF?

So, the Supreme Assholes of the Democratic Party are pleading doom and gloom to garner even more donations when they already have more money than they thought they could use.

Eff them and the horse they rode in on

We need new political parties . . . two of them! The ones we have are beyond repair or help.

  1. Steve, have you forgotten? M.O.N.E.Y. is what keeps the world spinning on its axis.

    I have NEVER contributed to a political cause … and I do NOT intend to start now, no matter who’s running or what the “negative consequences” might be if the person loses. To me, it’s like throwing $$$$ down a deep, dark, bottomless hole.

    • If we do not get the money out of our politics, we are just handing the country to billionaires to run. Not like Trump, real billionaires.

  2. Steve, I get about 25 fundraising emails every day from the Georgia campaigns.
    One says, “All is lost, it is allover, send money.”
    The next one says, “Did you hear the amazing news? We are winning!”
    My head is spinning.
    I have already sent $100.
    I am unsubscribing from all the lists.
