Desperation on the Left
Powerline ^ | July 30, 2012 | John Hinderaker

Posted on 07/31/2012 5:39:42 AM PDT by Palmetto Patriot

In the last 48 hours, I have received emails from representatives of the Democratic Party with the following subject lines: “nightmare,” “disaster” and “Romney defeats Obama?” Which is, of course, the nightmare and the disaster. Those headlines give you a pretty good idea of what the Democrats are seeing in their internal polling.

I got a letter from the DNC asking me for MONEY ! ! ! !

It had a picture of O’bumhole in a sad, thoughtful pose.

I sent a carefully worded and courteous reply requesting that they

EAT $HIT AND DIE ! ! ! !

———a party that’s been hijacked by an extremist fringe———

Meanwhile among the extremist fringe there is constant and loud wailing and gnashing of teeth because the cause has been lost.

They commit hari kari with a sword of some variety of nonvote

If they send you a postage paid envelope,
tape it to a brick and send it back.

Does that really work? I wish I'd known! The post office really needs the money.

I fill their prepaid envelope up with either a handful of metal washers or old lead fishing weights.

Bert, I’m not trying to be a jerk or to make you look bad. Just so you know, the term you use is actually “hara-kiri”. The “hara” is our core, our gut or belly; “kiri” means “to cut” or “cutting”. Hara-kiri (also known as “seppuku”) was a ritual method of death by disembowelment for Japanese samurai who were shamed or sentenced to death. A samurai often required help from someone who would finish the job by beheading him after his ritual cut.

I still haven’t figured out the significance of the “$3.00” request in EVERY ONE of their solicitations.

What is that all about?

One thing most Americans understand, despite having been dumbed down for decades, is that the economy is in bad shape and is getting worse. All those abstractions about liberty, freedoms and responsible governance don’t resonate with a whole lot of people but economic pain gets their attention every time. And that’s what terrifies the Dems. Their pals in the MSM may be able to manipulate the news but they can’t hide the realities of widespread financial distress that most Americans feel.

Truth be told I have used pre-paid envelopes to send say 50 pennies which probably costs them a $1.00 or more to receive much less process and deposit ... just trying to help. ;-)

I think it’s because they know that almost all of “Holder’s people” can afford $3.00; so they want every dime they can get.

Øbozo has long boasted that his campaign funds come from “The common man” rather than corporate “fat cats”. It’s not a complete lie (because of the $3 contributions), but it is an effective one for leftist minimal “thinkers”.

I got another one of those $3 requests this morning:

--
Sometimes politics can seem very small.
But the choice voters face in this election couldn't be bigger.
Over the past two months, we have been outraised by our opponents. They've used that advantage to distort the truth and mislead people, over and over, on TV and the radio in battleground states.
Tonight is one of the most critical fundraising deadlines we'll face.
If we win this election, it will be because of what you did in moments like this to close the gap.
Please make a donation of $3 or more right now:
https://my.democrats.org/Deadline-Midnight
Thank you.

Barack

Since I'm not sending Zero $3, can I consider my omission the reason he doesn't win the election? AS it's not possible to send a brick in an email, maybe I'll hold my nose and donate to Mitt.

To see how its really done...view the events of the November day in 1970 when the author Yukio Mishima committed seppuku (ritual suicide) after occupying Japan's military headquarters at the head of his private army

Many on the left simply do not care about Obama's performance over the last four years or the direction that the country is headed in.

Fueled in part by the mainstream media's narrative, their hate of conservatism/capitalism/entrepreneurism trumps all. Plus, they have convinced themselves that Romney is going to turn back the clock on, well, everything.

When they start name-dropping the Koch brothers, that is indeed a sign that desperation is setting in.
