Democrats Break Fundraising Records For Creepy, Annoying Emails

We won't stop spamming until you give.

The last day of the second quarter has produced a deluge of aggressive, frantic, panicked, obsequious and stalkerish emails from both parties, but two Democratic committees have really outdone themselves.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, relying on voguish social science research on people's motivations, dispatched this pseudo-official missive:

(Note: I haven't ever actually given money to a candidate or committee.)

Meanwhile, the Democratic National Committee adopted the posture of mariachi musicians who won't leave your table until you pay:

From: Debbie Wasserman Schultz [mailto:democraticparty@democrats.org]

Subject: Let's make a deal on this email thing


[Recipient] --

I like sending you emails on Saturdays about as much as you probably like receiving them.

But I'm doing it because the stakes this year are so incredibly high. Your help could be part of what makes or breaks races for Democrats across the country. No joke. That's the difference your support can make.

So let's make a deal:

And I promise you, this will be the last email you get from me today.


Enjoy your weekend -- and thank you, ever so much.
