With under two weeks to go until Election Day, Democrats are seeing the writing on the wall. The conservative blog Jammie Wearing Fools shared a fundraising email — subject line, “Accept Defeat” — from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and the content is equal parts hilarious and pathetic:
We are completely out of ideas.
After President Clinton emailed you this morning to ask for help, we really thought we would be in a better place.
But we aren’t. The Koch Brothers, Karl Rove, and the other Republican outside groups are spending millions against us. It’s the biggest spending spree of any midterm election EVER. So big — it doesn’t even look like President Clinton’s email can dig us out of this hole.
There is still time, though. Things are rough, but we’re not ready to accept defeat. If we can bring in 5O,OOO donations before tomorrow’s ad buy deadline, we can get back on track. Will you answer President Clinton’s call-to-action today?
As commenter Jay Guevara pointed out, those are indeed capital “Os” rather than zeros in “5O,OOO.” No wonder they can’t get anyone to open their checkbooks.
