Democratic National Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz is out begging for money, and, as usual, it isn't for the direct benefit of the Democratic Party. Debs is instead whining for cash to fund her own reelection campaign to Congress. And as she begs, she manages to sound both indignant as well as desperate.
A couple of days ago I received the following junk email from Debs:
Rocky,The opponent that has the curly-haired huckster so brassed-off is Tim Canova, a true progressive who appears to have a decent shot of defeating Wasserman Schultz in Florida's Democratic primary this August.
It looks like rainy season has come early for South Florida. But it’s not raining, so much as “pouring” for one of my opponents. At least that’s the word people are using to describe his outsider contributions.
Just one of my opponents raised almost one million dollars, and 90% of it came from donors outside of Florida. That would be enough to worry about for one election season -- except I have FIVE other opponents who also want me out of office.
I’m going to come right out and say it: I need your help. We’re speeding toward our May deadline, and the primary is right around the corner. Click to give $5 or whatever you can.
So, in order to compensate for all of this awful out-of-state money that is flowing to Canova, Debs turns, in desperation, to the DNC mailing list and begs for her own cash - most of it from out-of-state sources, like me. What a colossal hypocrite!
Debs, here's the solution in two words: payday lenders. Let those loan sharks know that staying in bed with you comes at a price - and don't let your votes go cheap. There's lots of cash to be had in the sewer - as you well know.
