The Campaign Hurricane e-mails: Obama seeks $$, Romney sends prayers
By: Greg Halvorson
Wow. I never get used to it… As hyper-informed and cognizant of the evil/buffoonery/cravenness of this administration as I am, I never get used to the petty, maladroit, and moronic e-mails with which they pepper their base. No–I’m not part of the base, but my masochistic side subscribes to Obama-blasts, Moochelle-blasts, Messina-Axelrod-Springsteen-Sheryl Crow…. You get the point: masochism. None so painful as this shameless tripe on the eve of a dangerous storm affecting 20% of the U.S. population:
After all Barack has done in office, and after all you have done to build this campaign, we can’t afford to watch everything slip away on Election Night.
But the other side has out-raised us–our opponents have $45 million more than we do for the Final Stretch…. And none of us has ever seen what a barrage of money like that will do.
That’s why we need to do everything we can in the last days, and why we still need your support.
And, until, tomorrow night, any donation you make will automatically enter you to meet Barack on Election Night!
We can either give it our all in these final days, or wake up on November 7th wishing we’d done a little more.
Supporting this campaign once more will move us closer to victory, and enter you to win a trip to join Barack on Election Night.

Contrast that to the Romney e-mail this morning:
Tonight, Ann and I are keeping the people in Hurricane Sandy’s path in our thoughts and prayers.
I hope that if you can, you will reach out to your neighbors who may need help getting ready for the storm–especially your elderly neighbors.
And if you can give of your resources or time, please consider supporting your local Red Cross organization – visit www.redcross.org to get involved.
For safety’s sake, as you and your family prepare for the storm, please be sure to bring any yard signs inside. In high winds, they can be dangerous and cause damage to homes and property.
I’m never so proud of Americans as when I see how we pull together in a crisis. There’s nothing that we can’t handle when we stand together.
Stay safe and God bless,

Here, in a nutshell, is next Tuesday’s choice…. A man of character or a man of particularly egregious moral failings compounded by the media’s likeminded turpitude in failing, completely, to expound on the egregiousness. Note how Romney selflessly seeks donations, not for himself, but for hurricane relief; whereas, Obama, via Antoinette, grovels for dimes.
Please, if you live in a swing-state – Nevada, Colorado, Virginia, Ohio, Florida, Wisconsin, Iowa, Pennsylvania…. – do not vote alone…. A Zombie Apocalypse can be avoided here, but only if the non-Zombies inundate the polls.
