    ARE digging in, standing up, making noise, fighting back and taking stands. They are mostly from VERY GOOD people.

    I think it is unfair to gripe about a fundraising plea from Elizabeth Warren, Jeff Merkley, or Sherrod Brown (to name just a few) on the grounds that they aren't standing up for us. That may make you feel more justified in ignoring their pleas, but it;s untrue.

    Luckily, I NEVER get a fundraising plea from my congresswoman, just indignant emails about what Republicans are up to. (Her email on the shutdown was so epic I posted it on my Facebook page). My district could not possibly be safer Democratic so my congresswoman doesn't need much money. She holds a couple of events you can opt to go to or not, and I imagine that money goes mainly to help colleagues. But she doesn't send email pleas.
