DCCC goes after Palin and 'lunatic fringe'

DCCC goes after Palin and 'lunatic fringe' By Eric Zimmermann - 11/30/09 03:52 PM ET

The DCCC is using Sarah Palin as a bogeyman to raise money, calling her book a "lie-riddled work of fiction."

An excerpt from a fundraising email DCCC Executive Director Jon Vogel sent to supporters today:

You and I know that the only thing dead on arrival whenever Sarah Palin grabs a microphone is the truth. Only now, her lie-riddled work of fiction called "Going Rogue" is selling like gangbusters - and it's up to us to give it a proper response.

The media is closely watching to see how grassroots Democrats respond to Palin's attacks before the all-important November FEC deadline that hits Midnight Tonight.

Help us raise $50,000 before Midnight Tonight for our Emergency Health Care Rapid Response Fund so health care supporting Democrats under attack by Sarah Palin and the right-wing lunatic fringe can fight back.

“Only now, her lie-riddled work of fiction called ‘Going Rogue’”

Looks like libel with malice aforethought. Palin has money now (heh heh), she should lawyer up!

I think the Governor may have just found a new theme song

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xp9852hq0W0&feature=player_embedded

Lunatic Fringe, we all know you’re out there
Can you feel the resistance?
Can you feel the thunder?

A kick-ass 80s song with a rocking beat. I can just imagine crowds getting totally pumped up by this.

If the Dems didn’t truly fear her she’d wouldn’t make for a very effective subject to raise money against.

It’s quite possible they print this garbage just to get a response from Sarah’s supporters.

We should try to ignore it - or stay cool, calm and collected.

Never argue with an idiot. They bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.” ...

They and their media minions are getting more pathetic every single day. With all the problems facing the country, can’t they find something else to raise money for other than to attack a private citizen? Every single person in the country should be sent their emails, so that not just the political junkies like us can see what they are up to.

What “proper response” is that?
Heck plenty of Democrats are buying Sarah Palin’s book as well. What do the Dimwits propose to do about that one?
Hey, is Steve Schmidt now working for the Democrats? That "work of fiction" bit sounds exactly like what he said.
The DCCC reminds me of the madmen I see walking about in the streets and mumbling insanities to themselves. To the madman, normal humans beings are “the lunatic fringe”.

What’s coming is the ripping loose of the veils of lies.
The lies of political correctness.
The lies of victimhood.
The lies of elite superiority.

All these lies will be ripped away, exposing them in their naked wickedness, without power, and at the mercy of their own skills and merit.

The really neat thing about these hysterics is that they confirm that Sarah is drawing Rat blood.

Notice that the usual Rat organizations that issue these releases NEVER single out Romney, Pawlenty, Huck, etc for their pleas for help...it's always Sarah Palin.

One would never have guessed that just a few months ago, they were previously calling this lady a "quitter," "all washed up," "finished," "kaput!" Now, she's still their number one boogey-woman, after all has been said and done!

Several of McCain’s staffers are the ones who said she has been less than honest. Would be hard to sue this guy with them saying this in public.

I don't think I would ever associate the line "Dirty deeds done dirt cheap" with Governor Palin. More like Rham.

well, she does like AC/DC. And there’s a reason her son’s middle name is Van(Van Palin sounds a bit like a certain 80s band). I thought lunatic fringe fit perfectly since there actually is a song called lunatic fringe.

I think thre’s already a solid roster of songs she could use:

Lunatic Fringe-Red Rider
Barracuda-Heart
Thunderstruck, Back In Black, You Shook Me All Night Long-AC/DC
American Girl-Tom Petty
Beautiful Girls-Van Halen
Sarah Smile-Hall and Oates
Brown Eyed Girl-Van Morrison

which is why I said middle name. Trig’s middle name is Van. And it is because of the band.
