Massachusetts' Democratic senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is taking fundraising to a whole new level. On Tuesday, instead of a standard "please send money" appeal, the Warren campaign sent an email to  supporters to let them know about the "not very nice" things Sen. Scott Brown's campaign had been saying about them:
Thanks to you and thousands of others, our campaign raised $3.4 million in the last quarter, but Professor Elizabeth Warren raised twice that amount: $6.9 million. How in the world could she raise so much?

She is a far-left ideologue and her liberal friends from across the country are helping her: She has the Harry Reid Democrats, the Hollywood Crowd, the Far Left Juggernaut, the Occupy Wall Street Bunch, and the Massachusetts Machine raising money hand-over-clenched fist. [Emphasis added]

It's the Far Left Juggernaut! That would be as opposed to Scott Brown's Wall Street juggernaut:
In his two Senate races, Brown’s top five contributors included four financial giants: Fidelity Investments, Goldman Sachs, Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co., and Liberty Mutual Insurance, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. The most generous donor has been FMR Corp., the parent of Fidelity Investments, chipping in at least $97,000 to his campaign committees from executives and  the firm’s PAC.

Executives and PACs affiliated with Goldman Sachs pumped at least $60,500 into Brown’s coffers; at least $51,000 from Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance; and at least $46,000 from Liberty Mutual Insurance.Goal Thermometer

It's appalling that someone who claims to occupy "The People's Seat" is raising money from Wall Street and billionaires while simultaneously demonizing small donors (83 percent of Warren's donations since January 1 have been $50 or less). It's also a sign of frustration in the Brown camp at just how effective Warren and her supporters have been in countering Wall Street cash.

Please, contribute $5 to Elizabeth Warren on Orange to Blue. If you ever wanted to be a member of a Far Left Juggernaut, this is your chance.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
