If you were on the receiving end of this letter, it must have been a little like getting a plea for reinforcements from Custer the day after Little Bighorn:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has an outgoing New Year’s Eve wish, asking House campaign supporters to give money to fight back against “shameful attack ads” that use her to target vulnerable Democrats.

In a new fundraising letter for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Californian thanks donors for their “dedication to making change a reality for millions of our fellow Americans,” without mentioning that Democrats lost control of the House in November and that in less than two weeks, Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) will become Speaker.

Instead, Pelosi asks donors to “chip in $10” to combat “shadowy special interest front groups [that] are already up on radio and television with shameful attack ads aimed at reversing the progress we’ve made.”
[…]
Donations before the Friday deadline will be matched “dollar-for-dollar by a group of generous Democrats,” she added.

Pelosi led the charge to accumulate $3,220,103,625,307.29 of new debt in the last two years alone and she wants people to pony up ten bucks so they can try to double-down? The word? No!

Just to put $3.22 trillion in a language the No Radish Left Behind crowd can understand, that Pelosi-assisted new debt amounts to almost 22 times what some say are obesity-related health care costs in the US every year — a number that’s used as justification for increased oversight of Big Chef. If the Let’s Move types really want to trim the fat, they’re starting inside the wrong beltway.
