Part with some dough to fight the idiots.

In this post: Stop the Tea Party.

It’s Tuesday, September 17. Since 8:45 this morning I’ve received no less than 13 fundraising requests from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Organizing for Action (President Obama’s fundraising group), Annie’s List, Emily’s List and the Texas Democratic Party. While I think it would be swell to have a mountain of unlimited cash for every worthy progressive cause, today I chose to contribute to the DCCC and the OFA. For the moment, however, the more important of the two is the OFA because they’re battling Speaker of the House John Boehner (a frequent and worthy Howdygram Putz of the Week award winner) for choosing to side with the Republican Tea Party in its never-ending smear campaign to destroy Obamacare.

To make it brief, the Tea Party wants to shut down the United States government — which would include slashing essential programs for millions of veterans, seniors and children — if the President won’t defund Obamacare before October 1 despite the fact that most Americans favor it and millions will finally able to afford health insurance for the very first time. Organizing for Action is running a series of TV ads for the next two weeks to push back against the Tea Party and they’re looking for donations in any amount. Please click the link below to part with your dough immediately. Thank you!

In other news, there really isn’t any right now because it’s after 8 p.m., I haven’t eaten dinner yet and my blood sugar is too low. I’ll try to come back to write another post after I do some serious food, okay? Shalom, y’all.
