Do you want to see something REALLY scary this Halloween?
Picture Sarah Palin endorsing a Conservative Party candidate and a favorite of the 'tea party' crowd in the NY-23 special election and raising $116,000 in 24 hours.Call it the Palin Effect.
Call it going rogue on her own Republican Party. Whatever we call it, we need to give it a powerful response from grassroots Democrats.This coming Tuesday marks one year since President Obama was elected.
Help us quadruple the Palin Effect by raising $500,000 and make a powerful vote of confidence for the President's first year agenda.Contribute $5, $10 or more before Midnight Tuesday so we can show the world how much support there is for President Obama on the first anniversary of his historic election.
This first anniversary is really important. The tea party crowd hopes to use Palin's endorsement in the NY-23 special election to send one of their own to Congress on the very first anniversary of President Obama winning the White House. And we can't let that happen.
The inmates have taken over the asylum, and are abandoning the Republican candidate in favor of the extreme conservative.This could either be a cause for concern or a great opportunity. Let's make it an opportunity -- a chance to see a good Democrat elected in a district that hasn't sent a Democrat to Congress since 1852.
The Conservative candidate Mrs. Palin is backing has pledged to continue the Bush economic policies of massive tax cuts for the idle rich and endless debt for the middle class. Those are the same policies that cratered this economy in the Bush years -- but Mrs. Palin is doing all she can to turn back the clock to the "good old days" of George W. Bush.Don't let Sarah Palin turn back the clock.
The media is closely watching what happens on Tuesday. They will use the amount of money Democrats have in the bank as a referendum on President Obama's first year. We need all grassroots Democrats to show how strong the President is.
Contribute $5, $10 or more before Midnight Tuesday so we can show the world how much support there is for President Obama on the first anniversary of his historic election.With the world watching, let's send Sarah Palin and all those 'tea party' folks the strongest possible message that one year after Election Day 2008, President Obama is stronger than ever.
P.S. Sarah Palin and the 'tea party' crowd think they can send one of their own to Congress on the very first anniversary of President Obama's election. As the world watches, let's tell them to think again. Help us raise $500,000 before Midnight Tuesday.
