The latest from The Empty Wig
Jeebus, I keep getting these feeble e-blasts from my pathetic senator, Liddy “Sugar Lips” Dole, in her capacity as head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC).
When you read this shrill, breathless piece — sent out to hit up The Base for buxxx, of course — you wonder if The Empty Wig and the fools at the NRSC really think this sort of drivel will actually fill the coffers. I thought about editing this down to choice bits, but the whole thing is so ridiculous that you simply have to read the whole thing. If only the Democrats were as effective as this alarmist piece suggests…
We know the Democrats have had no legislative agenda during this Congress, but their political agenda is becoming clearer by the day.
They want the White House in 2008. But they know their policies won’t fly with the American people. So they’ve embarked on a plan to take control of Congress in 2006 and then use Congress to initiate a long series of investigations and possible impeachment to win the White House in 2008.
You know that Senator Russ Feingold has introduced legislation to “censure” President Bush. He has called for hearings and has vocalized his support for possible impeachment.
On a national newscast, Senator Dick Durbin, the second most powerful Democrat in the US Senate, refused to rule out impeachment of President Bush.
Another chilling comment from a Democrat Leader was in the Washington Post just a few days ago:
[House Democrat Minority Leader Nancy] Pelosi also vowed “to use the power to investigate” the administration on multiple fronts…. When asked if this would lead to impeachment of the President, she said, “You never know where it leads to.”
The likely Democrat Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee (where impeachment begins), has already made it clear that he supports the Democrat’s plan. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) has sponsored a resolution calling for an investigation with the clear aim of initiating impeachment proceedings. Already, 35 Democrats plus Senate candidate Bernie Sanders (I-VT) have signed on as cosponsors. One of Rep. Conyers’ web-sites even has an entire section dedicated to investigations and possible impeachment.
If this were not enough, a coalition of over 100 liberal organizations have banded together to push the Democrat Leadership to impeach the President.
Help me stop this irresponsible, vengeful, and destructive course of action by the liberal Democrats.
I need your immediate help.
Please click here now to make a contribution of $33, $50, $100, $500 or $1,000 today toward the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s campaign to protect our Republican Senate Majority.
The future of our conservative agenda and the Bush presidency will hinge on whether we win this campaign.
Destroying President Bush is at the top of their wish list.
But Democrats want to do more than that . . . .
You see, for months now, Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and John Conyers in the House and Russ Feingold and Hillary Clinton in the Senate have been planning for the moment when they have the Majority in Congress…because that’s the moment they can begin to wipe out the accomplishments of the last six years.
They want to roll back the tax cuts that have restored our economy and that put an end to the Clinton recession.
They want to undermine all Republican efforts to win the War on Terror.
And they want to reverse the ban on partial birth abortions and radically change the traditional definition of marriage between a man and a woman.
We can’t let this happen. That is why your immediate support for the National Republican Senatorial Committee is so urgently needed.
[Contribute $500, $100, $50 or $33 to the NRSC]
Your financial support will enable the NRSC to rush much-needed campaign support to each of our outstanding 33 Republican Senate candidates who are under withering attacks from the liberal Democrats and their Special Interest allies.
Without your support, Democrats like Russ Feingold, Dick Durbin and Harry Reid will be calling the shots in Washington.
The NRSC is counting on dedicated Republicans like you to stand with us now and help prevent these reckless liberal Democrats from gaining control of the Senate and putting their damaging, pessimistic agenda into motion.
But remember – we are facing a well-organized and well-funded Democrat machine.
That is why it is critically important for the NRSC to remain in the best possible financial shape possible throughout the course of the entire 2006 election campaign.
So please, click here to help the NRSC stop liberal Democrats from capturing the Senate. With your help right now, we can keep American moving forward on the right course.
Thank you for helping the NRSC and our hard-charging Republican candidates defend our critical Republican Majority in the upcoming 2006 elections.
United States Senator
Chair, National Republican Senatorial Committee
