Another of those fund-raising appeals that never stop coming arrived this morning, ostensibly from Donna Brazile. It starts out,
If President Obama found a cure for the common cold, Republicans would oppose it.
I’ll ignore the laughably transparent attempt to pretend you know me (“Hey, Donna!”), when you obviously don’t if you think I’d give you money, and move on to the first full sentence.
You’re absolutely right. Now, will you agree with me on the following statement, which is just as obviously true?
If President Bush had found a cure for the common cold, Democrats would have opposed it.
You can’t agree, Donna? Oh, well. Perhaps I don’t know you that well, either.
Too bad. Because you had hit on a punchy, terse way of expressing how pointlessly partisan Congress has become, and how destructive it is to the country for anyone to give you money for your cause, or to do the same for your Republican counterparts.
Vote UnParty, y’all.
