Your Invitation from Newt Gingrich
Trolling through my e-mail spam collector stacked high with the usual Starbucks, Barnes & Noble, Starwood, press releases etc. from both Democrats and Republicans, I was chagrined to actually open what I knew would be the usual rantings from the Right, an invitation to join Newt Gingrich and his band of merry men at the round table for a chicken dinner. I personally know several Republicans who would be only too happy to shell out the bucks for this golden opportunity.
"Our country has a hostile, Democrat-controlled Congress and a popular Democrat president - much like we did in the early 90s - and they are intent on pushing their liberal agenda at our expense. We were up against similar electoral odds in 1994, but we were able to win back a Congressional majority with core conservative ideals to move the power out of Washington and give it back to the American people."
Wow! A chance to sit at the same table with Newt Gingrich and listen to hours of rabid rousting from the far right, who can resist such an offer? All I need to do is send $50 and join the lottery! Well actually, I can because I would rather have a tooth extraction than "... And I'd be honored if you were sitting at my table to discuss the future of our Republican Party."
Once again: Earth to Newt and Friends, isn't this why you lost the 2008 elections? Maybe 65 million voters chose to make a significant change in how our country is being run because of your views!
"I'll put I it this way; its time to end Nancy Pelosi's reign as Speaker by supporting the NRCC's efforts to take back a Congressional majority. Our nation, our national security and our private enterprise depend on this change. As a special thank you to all the contest entrants, you'll receive exclusive access to the live webcast of my speech courtesy of the NRCC. So, please take a few minutes to make a special contribution and I hope to see you at my table on the 8th.
P.S. Don't forget every time you enter you increase your chances to join me at the dinner. Please visit www.nrcc.org/dinnerwithnewt before May 31st at midnight to make your contribution. I look forward to meeting you. -Newt"
Newt, you aren't my friend & the last thing I would want to do is sit through a dinner posing as a true believer, I'm not an actress!
This is one way to get my e-mail address removed from the NRCC list serve!
