Starring John Kerry as Homer Simpson

I got an email this morning soliciting donations to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. The email informs me that several of the author's colleagues are in real trouble, having been targeted by national Republicans. It starts out like this:

Dear Moogie,

I know you get more requests for donations than you can
give to. I really do. In these times, especially, I feel bad for asking.
It goes on to name three of those colleagues in a "firefight," including the author's good pal Barbara Boxer, and explains why I should feel guilty for not forking over my checking account number and PIN.

Then it's sincerely signed, "Sen. John Kerry."

Heh. He don't know me too good, do he?


  1. Heh! I know the Postal Service does not deliver mail without postage any more. At least they say they don't.

    But, it makes you want to send them an envelope with a roll of pennies, postage due.

    Almost all elected Democrats are repulsive to me. But, Boxer is up there in my top tier.

  2. Once upon a time I used to send in the Postage Paid envelopes that were enclosed with the solicitation, empty. They kinda wised up to that ruse, though.

    Boxer is nearly as bad as Pelosi. Ewwghh -- makes my skin crawl to think about 'em.

  3. Howza about a credit card donation of five cents? It'll cost 'em ten to 20 times that much to process the transaction and you'll feel a whole lot better, knowing that you've "helped."

    Just sayin'.

  4. It's so thoughtful of you to worry about my feelings, Buck! I'll ponder the notion.
