Donna Brazile has a lie-filled fund-raising letter up at ClaireMcCaskill.com.
All three of Claire’s Republican challengers just keep getting more and more extreme. They want to privatize Social Security, privatize Medicare, eliminate student loans, prevent women from earning equal pay for equal work, reduce the minimum wage — and I could go on.
That’s right. All three Republican candidates for Senator in Missouri are actively campaigning against women “earning equal pay for equal work.” Even Sarah Steelman.
We think it’s a winning campaign issue.
And I don’t want to reduce the minimum wage. I want to abolish it.
But I digress.
Here’s where the irony checks in. First, this Democrat hack writes:
Karl Rove and his anonymous billionaire friends are spending tens of millions of dollars to twist Claire’s record like a pretzel.
They’re trying to buy this election. And if they succeed, they’ll do it over and over and over again. We just can’t let this happen.
The FEC reporting deadline is right around the corner — make a $1000 donation now.
So we either do all we can to elect Claire, someone who fights tirelessly for working families and isn’t afraid to step on some big toes.
Do you know any “working families” that can drop a grand for a campaign donation? I don’t. Not in this recession.
Who is this woman talking to? Do Democrat kabillionaires read campaign websites?
And how much chutzpah does it take to decry Karl Rove’s big money donors and then ask for individuals to drop a thousand bones in Claire’s tip jar?
This whole “working families” act is nothing but a veneer. It’s a cover to make Claire and the other Dems look like they are working for the litte guy.
They aren’t. They are working for the party. They are working to increase government power over you, under the guise of helping “working families.”
Don’t believe it.
