Look What Popped Up in My Email Tonight

The RNC has fired their phonebankers and hired people to send obnoxious solicitation emails to Democrats-or at least that's my assessment based the one I received tonight.

Shock of shocks, the GOP is using Hillary as a fundraising tool, inviting their fearful following to go to and contribute. Oh, they mention Obama and Edwards in passing, but it's Hillary who is front and center with a photo. This strategy is not exactly front page news, but this email (text below) is the most blatant attempt I have seen to date. How they picked me is a mystery. I have never ever voted in a Republican primary. I am on the executive committee for the DPG. I contribute only to Democrats, and yet, this was in my email.

"Fairness doesn't just happen. It requires the right government policies." Hillary Clinton, May 29, 2007

Do you think Hillary Clinton knows how to spend your money better than you do?
Are you willing to trust her to be "fair" with the "right government policies?"
Clearly, the 'government knows best crowd' is back and bolder than ever!
Hillary Clinton is mocking President Bush's goal of building an 'ownership society,' in which you have greater choices on how you manage your home, family, health care and retirement. And what's Hillary's prescription? More government rules and regulations, and higher taxes on everybody. There is nothing "fair" about it.
Amy, don't let Hillary get hold of your life savings. Support President Bush and the Republican Party's pro-growth policies by making a special online contribution of $1,000, $500, $100, $50, or $25 to the RNC today.

President Bush and our Party firmly believe that the money you earn is your own -- and that you can make better decisions on how to use it than the government.
The President's policies promote responsibility and opportunity: tax cuts have put more money in your pocket, Health Saving Accounts are providing better access to health care for more individuals, and Association Health Plans would help small business owners obtain affordable health care for themselves and their employees.
And thanks to President Bush's leadership, home ownership in America is near an all-time high, the economy has experienced over five years of uninterrupted growth, the unemployment rate is at 4.5%, inflation is low and wages are rising.
But everything we have accomplished together will be overturned if a liberal Democrat like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama or John Edwards is elected president in 2008. We need your help to stop the left-wing's agenda for our country.
Your secure online contribution will help the RNC spread the word about the Democrats' plans for bigger government and higher taxes. Please respond today. Thank you.
Sincerely,Robert M. "Mike" Duncan Chairman, Republican National Committee

P.S. Amy - Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards want to raise your taxes to pay for their big government programs. Say "NO" to more taxes and support our President and Party by making a secure online contribution to the RNC right now. With your support, we will stop Democrats' drive to push our country to the left. Click here to do your part today. Thank you.

The RNC's attempts to demonize Hillary appeals to certain ingrained cultural and psychological biasses that would probably take a monograph (book?) to explain. Her success..and the possibility of her further successes..seems really to trouble some people.

Yes, and it's a shame, really.
