A Word from the Dimocrat National Committee

As one of those privileged to receive regular email updates from the Democratic National Committee, I was thrilled to see news in my in-box this morning:

I just got up to Martha Coakley's campaign HQ to help her win Tuesday's crucial special election. I have to tell you -- this isn't like anything Massachusetts has ever seen.

It's happening right after the holidays, so a lot of people haven't even heard about it. Meanwhile, the same guys behind the Swift Boat ads are taking over the airwaves to distort Martha's record, and the same far-right tea-party crowd that's attacking President Obama is funding her opponent.

The stakes in this race are incredibly high. If we don't hold this seat, a right-wing Republican will hold Sen. Ted Kennedy's old seat until at least 2012 -- and we'll lose a crucial vote in the Senate for health reform and the agenda we fought so hard for last year.

That's why we're going all out in Massachusetts with a massive effort to lock up a Democratic victory. But we can only afford to keep this battle up against the far right through Election Day if folks like you chip in.

Please donate $5 or more to help us make Martha Coakley the next senator from Massachusetts.

Our organizers are engaging volunteers by the thousands to make sure Obama voters make it back to the polls.

But we need your help to keep it going. Please donate $5 or more to the Democratic Party to support our work, including our efforts to elect Martha Coakley.

As luck would have it, I'm a bit short on $5 bills to send to dimocrats, but I do feel an obligation to do my part, so won't you join me in saying a prayer for the democrats of Massachusetts: "God of all mercy, we beseech Thee, make an exception to Thy tender mercy and grant those big-government power-grabbing statists the merciless whoopin' they so richly deserve."

I'm going to hate being at school tomorrow and not being able to keep up with early results. I so hate to miss out a well-deserved arse-whoopin'.

I would have been so tempted to send an email thanking them for reminding me to donate to Mr. Brown's campaign.
