Today I received another survey from the national Democrats. The last one was from the DNC and this one is from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Like its predecessor, this survey is supposed to remind me of our shared goals as Democrats and inspire me to donate money to helping elect more "D's" to Congress in 2010 and 2012.
Although my initial reaction was to drop the mailer to the ground, jump up and down on it, tear it to shreds and then throw it away, I instead decided as I did with the survey from the DNC, to enclose a note explaining that because of their performance over the past 11 months that they've controlled the White House and Congress I wouldn't throw water on national Democrats seeking my support if they were on fire.
I don't know about you, but I phone banked, precinct walked, donated money and wrote letters to the editor on behalf of Obama and other Democrats running for office in 2008. If what we got is "change you can believe in", I'd hate to see what "same broken, corrupt system, different party in charge" looks like.
