Got this followup, from Nancy Pelosi (really, from the DCCC), to the Biden fund-raising email earlier:
President Obama has emailed you.
Vice President Biden has emailed you.
And now I’ve emailed you.
We wouldn’t all be asking if it wasn’t so important.
Brad, if we’re going to withstand the barrage of attacks we’re facing from the Koch brothers and Karl Rove, we need you to step up now. We’re down to our last 24 hours before our fundraising deadline and still coming up 18,000 donations short. Can we count on you?…
I guess the mention of those Democratic Party boogeymen, the Kochs and Rove, is supposed to send shivers down the spine of the recipient, and trigger the involuntary writing of checks.
Fortunately, we independents are more complex organisms…
