Democrats Waste No Time Fundraising Off 'Crazy Extremist' Michele Bachmann

Well, those fundraising emails didn't take long.
Can you believe this? House Republican, Tea Party Caucus Chairwoman, and extremist Michele Bachmann has now officially announced her campaign for President.

Not only does she think she can win, but many pundits think she's a contender. Even the latest polls show she's in a good position.

So why does this matter? Michele Bachmann is the EXACT kind of extremist we're fighting to keep OUT of Congress. We have just 72 hours left to put together the strongest possible mid-year fundraising totals and put Tea Party Republicans on notice that that we're going to defeat them in 2012.

Contribute $3 or more before the mid-year FEC deadline so we have the resources necessary to keep Republicans like Michele Bachmann out of Congress. Your gift will be triple-matched by House Democrats.

As Research Director, I’ve spent the last four years unearthing the truth about candidates like Michele Bachmann. Let me tell you, she’s only the tip of the iceberg.

With Bachmann's announcement, it's more critical than ever that we report strong fundraising totals to show the world that grassroots Democrats are the ones with the real momentum going into 2012.

P.S. We're fighting day and night to make sure President Obama has a Democratic Majority in the House. His agenda depends on it. But if we let tea party crazies like Michele Bachmann get elected to Congress, that agenda will go nowhere. Contribute today.
They really enjoy throwing the word "extremist" around. Just the other day, this gem from Bill Clinton showed up.
I’ve endorsed Janice Hahn for Congress in California’s 36th Congressional District, and I need your help to get her elected.

I think Americans get it. They understand that extreme solutions are not the right way to get out of a tough situation, like the one we face today with our economy. But right-wing extremists in Congress are persistent and, if we let them, they will hide behind a veil of concern for federal spending to push through a broad right-wing agenda dismantling Medicare, privatizing Social Security, undermining the environment, and balancing the budget on the backs of America’s most vulnerable people.

Janice Hahn’s opponent in this race is just such an extremist. We know that the voters of the 36th District will reject his policies once they get to know him, but getting that message out takes money. That’s why I’m asking that you make a contribution today to help elect Janice Hahn to Congress.
If I didn't know better I'd suggest they have a strategy at work here.

So, just $3?  When's the deadline?  never mind, I'm broke.
Ask the Obamas, they're multi-millionaires.
