Nancy Schaefer sent out what is probably the worst political fundraising letter I have ever received. She goes three quarters of the first page before even asking for money. But, along the way, we learn that “Paul Broun has a sordid past that colors his present and his future. Barry Fleming, a liberal Republican trial lawyer, is also a candidate.”
You can just envision her at the foot of her bed, on her knees, in her flannel night gown, praying, “Jesus forgive me for what I know of that man, Mr. Broun. Surely the fires of hell will be quick to consume him. And Lord spare me your wrath, but feel free to go after Barry Fleming.”
Schaefer also says she “can serve [her] constituents with honesty, integrity, and dignity.” She left out “with skill and energy.”
Now, for those of you who are thinking of giving her money, you should consider this. She writes, “I am trusting that the statistics we have that suggest a successful campaign will prove true.” I nearly spit my coffee out at that.
You too can have your laugh of the day by checking out the letter here.
