But first: have you seen Valerie Plame’s 80-second announcement video? The thing is, you will love it and be moved immediately to send money. Which is great, if you send just a tiny bit. But note that she’s running against other Democrats in a heavily Democratic district we are likely to win no matter what; and that it’s the Senate and White House, not the House, we have to win. So as awesome as she is — and she is –this is another example of a place we have to be ruthlessly logical.
Want to help with that? Here’s the case for chipping in to the broader effort rather than individual charismatic candidates like Valerie Plame . . . and perhaps fodder for your own fundraising:
And now, Ilhan Omar.
What part of her op-ed from a few months back do you find scary or alien or offensive? Why would anyone want to “send her back” to Somalia?
To me, her words fall well within the bounds of thoughtful, constructive, deeply-American discourse. We should be proud to have her in Congress, even where we disagree with her — and scared and horrified to have a deeply-un-American lying* fascist* sociopath* in the White House.
*Look up those terms — lying, fascist, and sociopath — and tell me what parts of their definitions he does not fit. You will really have to stretch to come up with any.
