An e-mail I received from James Carville. Oddly, no mention of how he thinks the president isn’t doing enough:
There are plenty of villains in the Gulf oil spill disaster — British Petroleum and lax regulations to name a couple. But let me tell you about one of the good guys: Charlie Melancon.
You might have seen Charlie getting a little choked up on TV this week. You see, nobody cares more about Louisiana than Charlie. He empathizes with the small business owners who are hurt by the spill because he is one. He fears for the marshes, because he knows those marshes. Charlie is working night and day to make sure BP is held accountable, the disaster is cleaned up, and Louisianans get back on their feet.
We need more of that same dedication and hard work in the Senate. Would you show your support for Charlie and the people of the Gulf Coast?
Bold, honest leaders like Charlie don’t come along every day. He’s just the type of stand-up guy we need standing up for us in the Senate. He’s facing a tough race, and he sure could use a show of support while he’s working so hard to help Louisianans who are hurting.
Would you show your support for the people of the Gulf Coast by standing with them and my friend, Charlie? He is making a difference every day. Let’s show that we appreciate all his hard work.
Charlie isn’t going to rest until this mess is resolved, and I’m not going to rest until Charlie is in the United States Senate. Thanks for helping a good man win.
