Bill Frist Writes Copy for Barack Obama

I received this in an e-mail from the Obama campaign this morning:

Kathryn –

Deadline: Midnight Tonight You’ll like this.

This morning someone forwarded me an email sent by the arm of the Republican Party that raises money for their Senate candidates.

The subject of the message was “Democrats Win Landslide Victory,” and the writer, Republican former Senator Bill Frist, admits: “I have a real fear of waking up to this headline after the elections this fall.”

He goes on to explain fears among Washington power brokers about Barack Obama’s grassroots support and voter registration efforts.

He’s right to be worried — we’re bringing new people into the process, and Obama supporters are organizing in communities across the country like never before.

But it can’t happen without your support. Frist was raising money ahead of tonight’s financial reporting deadline — the same deadline we face.
