One Final Chance to be seen in public with Nancy Pelosi? Thanks, I'll pass.

I am known for answering rhetorical questions; I'm also known to respond aloud to talking heads on the teevee and to answer spam.

And yes, these days anything that comes from Nancy Pelosi strikes me as probable spam before I even open it. Of course - and I don't think she GETS this - I'm not at all alone in that view.

Here's one more example of why Congress gets a 9% approval rating.

I am so excited about serving as Chair of our upcoming Democratic National Convention. In light of the extraordinary response to our 100 Days of Action campaign, I have opened up one final spot for a grassroots supporter like you to be my guest at our convention in Denver.

If you continue our momentum with a generous gift in the next 48 hours you can win this final opportunity to be my guest at our Democratic National Convention (August 25th-29th).

Please make a generous contribution of $15, $25, or more in the next 48 hours to win the final opportunity to be my guest at the Democratic National Convention. The more times you contribute in the next 48 hours, the more times you will be entered to win.

STOP TALKING TO ME AS IF I WERE A PARTICULARLY STUPID REPUBLICAN!

No, wait! I know what it reminds me more of; a begging letter from the Chrystal Cathedral! Think positive! Send Money! Get your cross from the Holy Land!

Anyway, I felt compelled to respond and share my response.
Compose Mail - Yahoo! Mail: Dear Nancy;

What an oddly apt subject line!

I'm sorry, I value my reputation rather too much to be publicly associated with you, and frankly, I don't trust the DCCC to do a better job of distributing my discretionary funds than you would personally.

Perhaps if you had followed the mandate we had given you... but you "took that off the table." If it is not yet clear to you, politics as usual is not really all that popular nor has it done anything much for democrats.

Your idea of prudent bipartisanship is admirable only if the other side is not actually a literal gang of criminals.


One starts to wonder about the ethics and crediblity of someone in such an important office who fails to consider such an obvious reality.

I believe I'll be lending my support to Cindy Sheehan.

Regards, such as they are;
Bob King

Dear Bob,
One more chance to win a trip to the Convention!


For the second time in less than a month, you have shown that Democrats stand united in our determination to move America in a profound New Direction.

A few weeks ago, I asked you to help our candidates launch the largest grassroots mobilization effort in history, just in time for the final 100 days of the campaign. You came through with an astonishing $3 million in grassroots donations. I cannot thank you enough for your generosity and commitment to our country's future.

Your generous support is helping in so many ways. In addition to helping our candidates build their get-out-the-vote operations, your support is allowing us to stay focused, prepared, and organized and target our resources where they are needed the most.

Thanks to you, we recently purchased more than $53 million worth of television airtime in 50 of the most competitive Congressional Districts. This purchase included more than $22 million worth of airtime in districts that are currently held by Republicans.

However, as the DCCC's Executive Director Brian Wolff recently said, this was just the opening act of a many act play, so we need your help to get to work on act two, act three, and beyond.

Please make a generous contribution of $15, $25, or more in the next 48 hours to win the final opportunity to be my guest at the Democratic National Convention. The more times you contribute in the next 48 hours, the more times you will be entered to win.

There are now less than 100 days until Election Day and we still have more opportunities to elect change-minded Democrats than we can afford. Please stand with us in the next 48 hours and especially in these final 91 days.

Thank you again for your support and commitment. With your continued support, we will seize this historic opportunity to expand our Majority to create a safer, more prosperous and energy independent future for our country.

Together, we can build the foundation for Senator Obama's victory in November and secure a New Direction for America.

Best regards,
Nancy
Speaker Nancy Pelosi

P.S. Our Democratic National Convention is less than one month away. Please give a generous gift in the next 48 hours and you can win the final opportunity to be my guest in Denver. The more times you give in the next 48 hours, the more chances you will have to win.
