I’m getting more appeals than ever for money from the DCCC, DSCC, and the DNC. The latest was from someone I’ve admired for a long time. I know Madeleine Albright will never see my reply, but I just had to put it out there to them, as they keep asking for my money because I’m a member. It would be more time-efficient to cut and paste these, so I don’t have to keep reinventing the wheel, but actually it helps to get things off my chest — and the landscape changes so quickly, each letter is slightly different.
I’ve always admired you greatly and still do. I can appreciate that the Democratic Party needs our support, but if I have any extra cash, I’m sending it to Hillary. Among the 16.7 people who have already voted for her, many of us are fuming that the DNC, Democratic Party, and Barack Obama have failed to address Hillary’s misogynistic treatment (imagine the outrage if she had brushed him off her shoulder), have favored one candidate over the other (via Brazile and Dean’s statements), and have failed to champion for FL and MI voters. We are lifelong Democrats who have been on the receiving end of insults and derision by zealots and New Democrats and The Media. Would they have stood silent if same insults were hurled at Obama? In fact, I feel as angry at my own party and it’s tactics as I did during the Viet Nam War and surrounding Presidential elections.
If the Dems don’t get it together, they’ll find a much bigger spoiler in this election than Nader ever was, with likely potential for a third party going forward. As Brazile has said, the party doesn’t need its base, it’s got new blood now.
You’ll likely never read this, but thanks,
