Original title: Barbra Streisand asks for 'emergency contribution' from Obama supporters: Are Hollywood Democrats panicking?
-----------------------------------

With the Presidential election just two weeks away, prominent Hollywood Democrat Barbra Streisand has sent an “emergency” email to the entire Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) mailing list, urging all recipients to dig deep into their pockets for last minute Obama campaign donations, according to The Hollywood Reporter

“The Democratic Party urgently needs your help. We’re just weeks from the most important election in a generation and every single thing Democrats like you and I spent a lifetime fighting for is on the line. Republican Super PACs are pounding President Obama and Democratic candidates with millions of dollars of vicious attack ads. And, they could tip the balance of the election for Tea Party extremists,” she wrote in the mass note. “That would be a disaster for America and we can’t let it happen. We must close the funding gap, It’s up to you and me to make this happen. Please rush an emergency contribution right away while there’s still time. President Obama needs a new Democratic Majority to get America moving again.”

Babs is also looking for donations of any unused brain cells.

You can make a big difference in reducing the Bab’s “bimbosity.”

A donation of only one unused brain cell will increase her capacity by 100%.

Give now.

Just thought you all should know...

The Democratic Party urgently needs your help.

We’re just weeks from the most important election in a generation and every single thing Democrats like you and I spent a lifetime fighting for is on the line.

Republican Super PACs are pounding President Obama and Democratic candidates with millions of dollars of vicious attack ads. And, they could tip the balance of the election for Tea Party extremists.

That would be a disaster for America and we can’t let it happen. We must close the funding gap.

That’s why I’m urging you donate $3 or more to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) today.

This election presents a clear choice:

Either we can continue with another two years of Republicans in Congress blocking President Obama’s agenda – or we can elect a Democratic majority that will stand with the President to make real progress in his second term.

Democrats will protect Medicare and strengthen environmental protections. Health care reform will be fully implemented and critical investments will be made in jobs and education to strengthen the middle-class.

It’s up to you and me to make this happen.

Please rush an emergency contribution right away while there’s still time.

President Obama needs a new Democratic Majority to get America moving again.

Thank you,

Barbra Streisand

Darn it.

I must not be on Barbarrrrrra’s list.

However, I get emails from Move On, the progressives, the occupiers an other $oreA$$ funded faux non profits.

All of them seem to be in full panic re wanting money.

Exactly. If they are tied, or winning.... then why are they acting like such losers?

I suppose when you inflate Democrats in polls to an obnoxious degree, even the liberals realise what’s coming their way.

I see this +6, plus 7 stuff regarding these polls. Well, that isn’t accurate either...

If they use 30 R, and 36 D, that isn’t a 6+ over sample, no... it is actually a 20% over sample...

This is a “Back to Brooklyn” tour. She started out in Brooklyn, New York at the new Barclay Center. I was at her second show because I’ve been a fan of her talent for 45 years (not her politics). She’s playing other American cities and then Canada. She’ll probably add Europe.

Hmmmm... This is a D triple C effort, so on behalf if the House Candidates not Obama.

This would seem to indicate that the House candidates are seriously hurting. Not surprising given that Obama and a few Senate races ( Squaw Warren in Mass) are sucking up all the money.

On an related note, recall that Obama did borrow $15 million from Bank of America earlier in the month. Not a lot if money for a campaign that’s had multiple $100 million+ months, so pretty curious.
