No

Got a questionnaire in the mail from the RNC yesterday. The questions are supposed to make me think they care about my opinion, but what they really wanted was my "most generous contribution." Here's what I sent them instead.

Not that it will make any difference, but it's worth a try.

Update: Emailed the photo to Michelle Malkin and she liked it.

I used to think they cared, too. Something just hit me this time. I think it was McCain in the last election and the total disregard they've shown, both before and after the election, for grassroots opinion. Then I saw the magical phrase on the questionnaire, "Won't you send us your most generous contribution?" No, I won't. They try to scare us into thinking that if we don't contribute, Obama will destroy the country. News flash to RNC: Obama's already doing it, and you're helping!

I could just scream. The Republicans have the most opportune moment right now to be a shining light of restraint and principle, and what do they do? Get caught in sleazy sex scandals and offer concession after concession to the Democrats. Well, screw 'em. I'll go down with my principles intact rather than hope to win with a bunch of phonies.

Oh Snap!

Idjits.

Plus, the phonies will do what the real socialists are doing, just a bit slower.

When I got mine, I wrote on it,"Actions first, then you get a contribution."

No reason anymore to pay for failure.

That's how I decorate my returns to them too! :-)

Good idea, except now they don't even ask me anymore.

Stickwick - are you saying that you wrote it? I wrote it and mailed it back to the source. I'm not trying to cause trouble, since we're both on the same team, but I wrote the exact same thing. I used a Sharpie on my kitchen table, stamped it and sent it back - a month or two ago.

I used to work in fund raising at a major WestCoast PrivateUniversity, and this IMO is a low-level "Annual Fund" kind of sweeping-up effort. Anyone mistaking it for a genuine effort to collect opinions and views is way off the mark. But the fact that the GOP continues to act this way and mail-pout these kinds of collection efforts shows to me that their stuck in an administrative rut, the Director of this "campaign" is out to lunch or running on auto-pilot.

EW,

Yes, of course I'm saying I wrote it. That's my handwriting, and I took a photo of it with my iPhone before I mailed it off.

What on Earth are you insinuating?

I guess I'm insinuating that great minds thinks alike?

If you look at the comments over at MM, about a dozen people claim they've written almost exactly the same thing. So maybe not so much great minds, but fed-up people with phony questionnaires and Sharpies think alike.
