Oh noes!

From our good friend Tengrain over at Mock, Paper, Scissors:

Oh for god’s sake. As if on cue, I got the following  email this morning from the DNC’s faux progressive online fund-raising group, “Organizing for America”:

Yesterday’s disappointing election results show deep discontent with the pace of change. I know the OFA community and the President share that frustration.

We also saw what we knew to be true all along: Any change worth making is hard and will be fought at every turn. While it doesn’t take away the sting of this loss, there is no road to real change without setbacks along the way.

We could have simply sought to do things that were easy, that wouldn’t stir up controversy. But changes that aren’t controversial rarely solve the problem.

Our country continues to face the same fundamental challenges it faced yesterday. Our health care system still needs reform. Wall Street still needs to be held accountable. We still need to create good jobs. And we still need to continue building a clean energy economy.

The President isn’t walking away from these challenges. In fact, his determination and resolve are only stronger. We must match that commitment with our own.

But it won’t be easy. Real change never is. For that reason, I am grateful you’re part of this fight with us.

Thank you,


Mitch Stewart
Organizing for America

What the what? Exactly what difficult change is he talking about? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?



  1. Well, you know, it is a hard decision giving the right everything they want while screwing the people who elected you.

    ‘But it won’t be easy. Real change never is. For that reason, I am grateful you’re part of this fight with us.’

    The last year hasn’t been change and in the fight, Obama and his empty oratory have become the other side.

  2. Oh — he’s been ready to lose all right! And very good at it, too!

    Excellent work on the graphic, Tengrain!

    Morgan, isn’t it amazing that they’re still doing the “change” mantra and asking us for money?!
