As posted here...I am pissed at the Tea Party Express because of their wussy “we failed” stance on a recent fundraising email.
Nobody there has responded to my email to them asking them, basically, “WTF?”. But I did get another one:
YES! WE’VE TURNED FAILURE INTO SUCCESS FOR ELECTION NEXT TUESDAY
“We had failed. All of us. Originally, only 250 people responded to our request for help to reach the $1 million mark. Now an additional 1,200 people have responded so we are on track to meet our goal – if you our supporters keep stepping forward with more contributions.
This had been one of the greatest failures we here at the Tea Party Express have ever had in terms of raising money for a campaign push, and this is the worst possible time for us to fail: just 1 WEEK out before Election Day.
We told you that we MUST do better. And so far you all are doing much better. But we can’t stop now, we’re still well short of our goal, but we’re making up ground rapidly each hour!!!
Because if you don’t, our children will starve. Obama will tax our kids’ college funds, piggy banks and lunch money. Harry Reid will shut down their lemonade stands and Nancy Pelosi will send her flying monkeys out to snatch them as they walk home from school. So you MUST open your wallet again, or you don’t care about our country’s children.”
(OK, it’s possible that last paragraph was NOT in the e-mail)
Guilt is a lousy motivator.
You know what is a much better motivator?
Fear and intimidation. And Chris Christie can bring it:
I live in California and I’m thinking about hopping a plane this weekend to Illinois to help Bill Brady. Now if we can only get Christie here to California to throw his weight behind Carly…
