All of you who are Democrats should thank me profusely. You could say, "Thanks a million," or even "Thanks two million!"
Not that I did anything — I promise. Nevertheless, I am apparently entitled to all the glory. Such is the message I derive from this press release, written in the standard bogus-personal style of these things:
It’s all thanks to you.
It’s because of you that we surpassed our $2 million goal by $58,270 in the hours before the September 30th deadline.
Every day when I walk into DSCC headquarters, the first thing I do is check on our online supporters and grassroots activism. And I continue to be astounded and invigorated by our partnership. As DSCC Chair, I can say that we are sustained by supporters like you who realize that early resources are the key to victory in 2008….
… Thank you again.
Sen. Chuck Schumer
Any time, Chuck, really.
If you’re curious, this supposedly links to a video that tells just how I helped bring this about. You watch it. I can’t look. After a while, I get embarrassed by all this praise.
Kidding aside, who falls for this stuff? Who actually gets all warm and fuzzy from such utter hokum?
