I just received an email from Obama's Organizing for America, subject line: "This is some sick crap."
Mary --The Koch brothers are "giving away free booze to try to bribe young folks out of getting health insurance"?
This should humiliate anyone who's ever been associated with the Koch brothers.
One of their anti-Obamacare groups is going to college campuses, giving away free booze to try to bribe young folks out of getting health insurance.
Let them spend their millions on sick crap like that. Whether they like it or not, they're losing this debate, all because of the work you're doing. We're the group that's capable of putting these groups in their place.
Here's why I'm writing -- we're facing a huge fundraising deadline on Monday, and I need to know if you'll chip in to help.
According to our records associated with this exact email address, you haven't chipped in yet this year:
-- Supporter Status: ActiveIf I had one thing to say to the Koch brothers, it'd be: "SCOREBOARD!"
-- 2014 Membership: Pending
-- Suggested action: Donate $5 or more today.
Despite the millions of dollars they've spent, more than 5 million Americans have already signed up for private plans through the health insurance marketplace.
We're beating them through one-on-one conversations, helping people get the facts about getting covered, and dismantling the lies these groups are spreading about health care reform.
No matter what change we're fighting for, it seems like the Koch brothers have always been on the other side.
Our track record is pretty damn good. We've shown we can beat them, because we're building something bigger, stronger, and smarter than just a pile of money.
We'll never be able to go toe-to-toe with their checkbook -- and we don't need to, because we have a much more powerful tool in the hundreds of thousands of Americans standing up to make their voices heard.
That's what makes us different, and it's what makes these fundraising deadlines so important.
Your donation matters -- chip in $5 or more today:

Oh, good grief.
What's sick is the way the Leftists, Obama's own campaign arm, are demonizing the Koch brothers.
Is a term like "sick crap" supposed to appeal to regular folks? What is that? I think it's rather inappropriate.
"Our track record is pretty damn good."
What is that?
Not appropriate in an email. Edit.
