One particular kind of email we receive isn’t really directed at the news media, per se, but we get them anyway because we’re on various candidates’ mail lists.
That’s the naked appeal for campaign cash, which arrives periodically but especially before deadlines. The most recent deadline arrived last night with the new year.
So for a laugh, I thought I’d post a selection of subject lines from the various appeals for money. I’ll spare you the actual content of each message, but readers might get some amusement out of the collection.
Guy Harrison (NRCC): “Last Chance”
Jenny Nadicksbernd (Tim Kaine): “8 hours to go”
Michael Krull (Newt Gingrich): “Last Chance To Support Newt in 2011″
Kellen Giuda (Gingrich): “You Could Be the One To Put Us Over the Top”
Robby Mook (DCCC): “Final chance Mason”
Steve Israel (DCCC): “Can I say this?”
Tim Kaine: “Forward-looking”
Hurt for Congress (Robert Hurt): “Defend this seat”
Nancy Pelosi (DCCC): “One last thing”
Barack Obama: “Hey”
Sam Rasoul (running for Roanoke mayor): “18 hours to go!”
Rufus Gifford (Obama): “I know, I know, I know”
Michael Krull (Gingrich): “Courage Has Never Been More Important”
Michelle Obama: “I want to be able to say”
Pretty much all of these arrived over the last couple of days.
Happy new year everyone!
