DNC Palin Derangement Syndrome

The Democrats are so afraid of Sarah Palin that they have to - gasp! - *raise more money*! Oh yes. Her book is, according to these shameless hucksters, an attack on Obama. Oh, and on health care, which is, of course, the same thing in their eyes.

And she's dangerous.

Whhaaattt?

So what is the solution? Why, to raise half a million dollars, of course! That will fix things.

Here's the hysterical email, liberally sprinkled with DNC lies, that I got:

The Democratic Party
-----------------------
Janis --

Right now, Sarah Palin is on a highly publicized,
nationwide book tour, attacking President Obama
and his plan for health reform at every turn.

It's dangerous. Remember, this is the person who
coined the term "Death Panels"
--and opened the flood gates for months of false
attacks by specia interests and partisan extremists
(Note: anyone else tired of the Obama Democrats
labelling anyone who doesn't agree with them as
*extremists*...).

Whatever lie comes next will be widely covered
by the media, then constantly echoed by
right-wing attack groups and others who are
trying to defeat reform.

As we approach the final sprint on health reform,
we can't afford more deception and delay. We
need to be ready for anything -- and have
the resources to respond with ads, events,
and calls to Congress when the attacks come.

So we're setting a big goal: $500,000 in
the next week to help push back against
Sarah Palin and her allies. Please chip in
$5 or more to help reach our goal:

Earlier this month, Palin publicly said
that she hopes health reform will be
"dead on arrival." And since then, she's
been working fiercely toward that goal.

On Tuesday, Palin went on Rush Limbaugh's
radio show where she outrageously -- and
falsely -- suggested that Americans could
"face jail time as punishment" if they
don't buy insurance (note - this little
gem is actually true. Democrats did float
the idea of fining Americans who don't buy
mandatory insurance, and jailing them as well).

Palin has many more interviews scheduled on
Hannity and other conservative shows in
the next few weeks, with more platforms to
go after the President. As soon as she
does, the rest of our opponents will likely
parrot those attacks.

We need to be prepared. And we're counting
on you help. Can you chip in $5 or more?

Thanks,

Mitch

I love reading your blog. I'm surprised the whole world hasn't found you.

(BTW, I can't stand Oprah, either...)
