Yeah, I know, I’ve used that Bugs Bunny quote before, but it’s such a useful one…
Just thought I’d share with you my latest missive from the DCCC. And I quote:
Hi Brad —
We’re reviewing our Democratic supporter records in advance of tomorrow’s Federal Election Commission (FEC) deadline. Your record is copied and pasted below:
Supporter record: XXXXXXX
Name: Brad Warthen
2012 Online Support: Pending
Suggested support: $3.00
If you’re planning to contribute to our campaign to win a Democratic Majority for President Obama, it’s critical that you make your donation in the next 24 hours. Tomorrow is the midyear FEC reporting deadline of the 2012 general election. We’re relying on your support: 80% of our contributions are $35 or less.
Thanks for standing with us.
DCCC Digital Director
P.S. Our records show your email address as firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’ve made a contribution offline or our records are incorrect, and you have made a recent online donation, please click here to let us know.
(Note that I Xed out the “supporter record” number, in case it might in any way expose me to ID theft.)
I just hate to think of all those hyperactive folk at the DCCC (since that one arrived, I’ve received two more, ostensibly from James Carville and Al Franken) sitting up nights wondering when my $3 check is going to get there.
But it doesn’t so much bother me that I’ll ever send them anything.
