I'm Sorry
Elizabeth Warren for Senate ^ | 9/29/12 | Warren

Posted on 09/29/2012 3:20:33 PM PDT by pabianice

Hello --

I'm writing to say I'm sorry.

Since I jumped into the race for the U.S. Senate, I have asked you for money through this email list again and again. And again.

I know that it is a real pain that you get a bazillion emails asking for money. And I know that every email (including this one) always has a "donate" button at the bottom.

Believe me, I hate it too. It is my least favorite part of being a candidate for the U.S. Senate, and it's something I really didn't look forward to when I decided to run.

But I also don't kid myself. I know that this is the most expensive Senate race in the country, and I know that the Republicans are flooding Scott Brown with Wall Street money [1]. He started $7 million ahead. We've worked hard, but the money has flowed in for him, so he is still $2 million ahead.

I also know I am able to run a competitive race without buckets of special interest money because of you, and, yes, because of all the emails. Together, we have built an organization that has raised more small donations than any other Senate campaign in the country. That's a big deal.

I was thinking about the very first contest we had in the campaign -- figuring out what should be printed on the back of our Elizabeth-for-Senate T-shirts. The winning slogan: The best senator money can't buy.

I love that sentence -- the best senator money can't buy. I say it to myself every day and every night.

I'm not going to Washington to work for Wall Street or Big Oil or billionaires -- no matter what.

I'm going to work for the people I talk with every day across Massachusetts.

A few weeks ago, Bruce and I sneaked off to the movies. We were on the platform waiting for the Red Line [2], when a young man walked up to introduce himself. He said he was a student, and he explained all the reasons he was supporting this campaign.

It was clear that money was tight for him -- full-time job while he's in school, two jobs in the summer, student loans, family can't help. We took a picture on his phone, and, as he was about to leave, he said, "I give you money every month, and I'm taking on hours so I can give more." I felt my chest contract [3], and I said thanks, but maybe he should keep the money. He said, "No, I'm part of this campaign. This is my fight too."

The student on the T-platform keeps me in this race -- able to run paid ads and to build a person-to-person grassroots organization across the Commonwealth. And for that, I'm grateful.

I'm sorry about all the requests for money. I am so grateful for your support. And I hope you forgive the "Donate" button at the bottom of every email -- and all the emails asking for money still to come.

Yours,

Elizabeth

I saw the headline and who wrote it and thought she was finally going to come clean. But noooooo! Not Paleface Lizzy. The only thing she’s sorry about is that people aren’t sending her enough money. I’ve got a marketing tip for Chevrolet. Forget the Volt in Massachusetts. With those Massachusetts Democrats still supporting Paleface Lizzy, the liar and thief, there has to be a huge market in Massachusetts for armored cars. They evidently don’t mind thieves there.

The notion that Princess Talking Bull was waiting for a Red Line train is hilarious. I’ll bet she hasn’t done that in years, if ever unless it was for a campaign photo shoot. Or maybe she thought that riding the Red Line made her a Native American.

Odd that there isn't one mention of taking the MA bar exam, and how much it costs.

Is practicing law in the state of MA legal without a license?

Oh well, democRATs don't have to worry about the law in MA. The Kennedys taught us that lesson.

Question: if thousands of us hit her donation button and offered to donate 1 cent, would it COST her campaign more to process the “donation” and thus she would end up LOSING money?

Just a thought.

Its bad enough that this pos benefited by pretending to be an indian, but we now know her ancestors participated in the Cherokee expulsion.
This would be akin to a descendant of an SS officer claiming to be Jewish to gain a scholarship to Yeshiva University.
She should lose her tenure and go straight to hell.

When she checked the box labeled “native American” to take advantage of an affirmative action program she thought they meant “naked American.”

Well Hell, she was born that way so why not?

I completely understand that Massachusetts is really really liberal.

But given the way Eliabeth Warren has conducted her campaign and the way she’s (mis)represented herself, I am totally f***ing amazed that she is still considered a serious candidate. In so many other states, she’d be lucky to be polling 45% of the vote.

But then again, I’m from Minnesota and we actually sent an unfunny comedian to the US Senate. Given that, I guess nothing should surprise me anymore.

Funny you should post a pic of an Injun Head penny....a few days ago, we were leaving an eatery and wifey spotted a penny on the floor -- she ALWAYS picks 'em up, as a "luck" thing from childhood.

Yesterday, changing purses, she saw that what she'd snagged was a pristine 1901 Injun Head penny.....some poor sap probably dropped his longtime keepsake.

.....The coin book only tags it's worth at 8 bucks, but I'll never rag on her about picking up pennies in scuzzy parking lots any more.

It's called political shock and awe...When Americans who have been indoctrinated from birth by Leftist media and academia with unearned self esteem rationalizations which invite destructive expectations of entitlement...suddenly become the voting majority and we all go into shock and awe that such a thing could ever happen in our America...
...but it just may will...we will see on 11/6 which may rival 9/11 in reminding the United States who her real enemies are.

Drudge has an article saying the Lakota Nation succeeding followed perhaps by 19 others. Haven’t the slightest idea what this is about. It says some actor who is Indian has done this before. It will affect several states. Doesn’t make sense. Wonder if they are involved with the government behind the scenes.

Warren is of the Lakota Sioux tribe called the Yellow Hand—the tribe of Richard Harris aka the Man Called Horse and she is known as the Woman Called Horseshit.

It was clear that money was tight for him -- full-time job while he's in school, two jobs in the summer, student loans, family can't help. We took a picture on his phone, and, as he was about to leave, he said, "I give you money every month, and I'm taking on hours so I can give more." I felt my chest contract [3], and I said thanks, but maybe he should keep the money. He said, "No, I'm part of this campaign. This is my fight too."
