The Corner

Dear Dems…

Here’s an email the Democrats are sending around, forwarded to me from a friend. NRO readers, do your duty:

Dear [name withheld],

We need your help one last time. So far the debates have been two clear wins for John Kerry. And your actions after the debate have been absolutely

crucial in keeping the Republican spin machine in check.

Tonight is the final debate between John Kerry and George W. Bush, the one where the post-debate spin will solidify and last until Election Day. If you have not taken action before, now is the time to do it!

There are four critical things you can do to help beat the Republican spin machine after tonight’s final debate.

1. Forward this email to family, coworkers, and friends.

2. Vote in online polls.

3. Write a letter to the editor.

4. Call radio and television stations.

*** Vote in Online Polls ***

And be sure to check the websites of your local newspapers and TV stations for online polls. It is crucial that you do this in the minutes immediately following the debate…

Thank you,

Terry McAuliffe

Chairman

I gather he didn’t like my comment on his New York Times op-ed on the folly of reaching out to Trump supporters.
