Elizabeth Warren: no outside meddlers

Jerry Stratton, March 28, 2012

I’ve obviously been falling down on the job. I have a huge pile of political junk mail in manila envelopes (by month) behind me, and I haven’t blogged about any of them. I almost threw Elizabeth Warren’s “URGENT CAMPAIGN UPDATE” on the pile today.

Then I realized: I’ll bet she complains about outsiders, in a letter she sent from Somerville Massachusetts to San Diego California asking for money.

Elizabeth has… signed the “People’s Pledge,” which Scott Brown has signed as well. It says each campaign will donate half of the cost of any outside group ad to charity if the ad attacks their opponent by name. It calls on outside groups like Karl Rove’s to stay out of Massachusetts.

Thanks to the “People’s Pledge,” the power of grassroots donors like you is stronger than ever. Please give as generously as you can today…

Blah blah blah.

Outside groups, stay out of Massachusetts! But feel free to donate to my campaign if you’d like to be upgraded to the grassroots.

As an aside, I wonder who the most effective Snowball is. Sarah Palin or Karl Rove?

In response to Mimsy Election Mailbag: Let’s see which politicians prefer the post office to the Internet, and what they say when they do.

  2. UFW barf bag ->
