Leaked Democrat Memo: NO MORE MEMOS!
Free Republic ^ | 11/19/2003 | Chad Fairbanks

Posted on 11/19/2003 10:12:48 AM PST by Chad Fairbanks

Memo

To: All democrat public officials
From: Damage Control Division
CC: Major Mainstream Media; Activist Groups
Date: November 19, 2003
Re: Moratorium on use of memos

Moratorium on use of memos

Effective immediately, the DNC is issuing a moratorium on the use of memos. Though we have managed, thus far, to keep most details out of the mainstream media (Thanks, everyone!), we have faced the following incidents, all of which could be prevented. Until proper document control procedures can be put in place, the use of memos for all purposes is forbidden.

Judicial Committee Memos

Ok, someone leaked these memos, and its making us look pretty bad. We’ve been lucky, thus far, in keeping this story out of the media (thanks, everyone!). These memos documented the campaigns by various mainstream moderate groups, such as National Abortion Rights Action League, Alliance for Justice, Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, People for the American Way, Association of University Women, National Women's Law Center, and National Partnership, to dictate which nominees we should block, which we should allow votes on, and which ones should be delayed until pending cases are heard.

A perfect example was our win with the recent Michigan Race-Preferences rulings – if one of Bush’s nominees had been confirmed in time, we could have lost that case.

Oh, and that Senator Durbin memo? The one where he said “most of Bush’s nominees are Nazis”? Not good public relations, true or not.

However, documenting this was probably not the best idea we could have had. Memos like this one make my job harder, and are an unnecessary expenditure of time and energy. I’d appreciate it if there were no more memos like these passed around, ok? Thanks.

Select Intelligence Committee Memo

We are at war people. No, I’m not talking about our culture war against the intolerant, bigoted hatemongers on the Right. I’m talking about the President’s “War on Terror”. We may not like it, but it is a fact. So, passing around memos on the Select Intelligence Committee about digging through classified information, looking for dirt to use on the president during the 2004 campaign was NOT, I repeat NOT, acceptable. I know Senator Rockefeller was trying to help, but come on people - putting it in writing? Stupid move, that.

All we have accomplished with that is we have not only cut off our access to that potentially useful information, but we have also mobilized the Right. They even have a site up about it, called intelmemo.com. While we have been successful in keeping this potentially treasonous memo out of the mainstream media, we may not be able to get them to ignore it for much longer.

Once again, I must let you know that this is making my job a lot harder, when there are so many other things that I must concentrate on. If I have to keep paying more people to help with damage control, it begins to eat into our campaign budget.

Summation

Until we can find a way to keep those dishonest republicans from stealing our damaging memos...

One last reminder: NO MORE MEMOS!!!!

I found this memo in a trash can, in the Hart Office Building. I figured I'd share it with you all...

Is Daschle's office in the Hart Bldg? ... Where's Hatellary Rodhamster's office? Was the trashcan next to or within an important office? Did you vet this thread with the DNC before posting?

But Chad, without advice from special interest groups, the Dems won't know how to vote about anything -- except maybe pay raises for themselves. They need the memos to read from during the debate; otherwise they'd have nothing to say except "Duh?" -- and they'd lose all that special interest money. Maybe they can use super-secret decoder rings instead (e-mail won't work; most of them don't know how to turn on a computer).

Well, maybe we can create a bunch of activist groups with left-wing sounding names, scream really loud, and influence the DNC to do the things WE want them to do? That could be fun ;0)

Now you understand my comment to you?

"Vetty funny bit, Mr. Fairbanks."

I see I am not the only one who calls you Mr. Fairbanks.

Your question "Where?"
I am sure you have found it by now.

Or several.
