Email of the Day

Timothy Kincaid won the bet:

Another day, another deadline…

Dear Jim,

I’ve hardly slept the last three days. Over the past week, I have been faced with the gut-wrenching decision of whether or not to launch Public Advocate’s Battleground Action Initiative. This program is designed to defend family values and real marriage in four states this November.

By Friday, I had given up hope that enough money would come in to pay for it. Then at the last minute, I saw a huge surge in donations! This gave me hope that America is still committed to fighting for real marriage and American morality.

But even with that blessed surge, there isn’t nearly enough. I wrestled with it all night. I prayed over it. And in the morning, I authorized my staff to launch the most crucial elements of the Battleground Action Initiative — even though we have not yet reached our fundraising goals. Now I am trusting that the money will come in time.

Please click here to make your largest single donation possible.

…P.S. The deadline is midnight tomorrow.  I am already committed…

“P.S. The deadline is midnight tomorrow. I am already committed.”

No, actually you aren’t really committed. But we all would like to see you psychologically “committed” while you’re wearing a straight-jacket sitting in a padded cell, shot up with Thorozine. I’d actually make a donation to that cause.

Is it just me? Or does it seem the most audacious gravitas to say there was a surge in donations?
I don’t think that happened at all, but that he’s just saying it to spur other people into thinking many others agree with what he’s doing.
So why not try and get the others who haven’t responded to think they are needed?
“The program is to defend family values and real marriage.”
I can’t help but think how brain damaged the people he reaches out to have to be to not think about how useless that program is.
Gay people are not the scourge of family values, cohesion or importance.
If any of these so called defenders brought up divorce, adultery, addiction, domestic violence and child abuse as the scourges against families and their safety, I’d see them AS defenders.

I really, REALLY want to laugh at the hyperbole they trade in. As if they are SUCH brave, courageous and successful warriors against the ‘homosexual agenda’.
They take swings at gay people who are defending marriage, families and children. In other words, there is no enemy, nothing destructive, nor who is violating anything for them to swing at.

They talk as if they need a big stick. But declaring war on those gay people who are peaceful is called a violation and oppression.
And apparently, only the truly intelligent and brave know the difference.

Regan: I’ll also note that this email is just an extension of Delgaudio’s usual pattern of alternating between using “it’s the end of the world” and “victory is in sight” approaches in his fundraising attempts.
