James Carville Likens Tea Party To Kudzu


Talk about invasive species.


Just received this fund-raising letter from James Carville in which he likens the Tea Party folk to the wild, out of control, invasive vine species, Kudzu.   James  would like to stick it to the Tea Party Republicans. lol.  Here ya go:


Dear friend,

Thought experiment: Picture Washington under total Tea Party control.

Mitch McConnell will privatize Social Security. Jim DeMint will end Medicare. And kiss the EPA goodbye since Tea Partiers think clean water tramples on their constitutional right to be poisoned. The Tea Party’s like kudzu – you give ’em an inch, they take MILES.

They get their crazy ideas through the House, and the Senate stops ’em. Thing is, they flip four seats, and their ideas will fly right on through. Our little thought experiment becomes an ugly-as-sin reality.

What you chose to do in the next 12 hours will determine who controls the Senate – Tea Party Republicans, or the rest of us. The DSCC’s still $75,000 short of its September goal. Your immediate gift – which will be matched – could put Democrats over the top. Don’t give, and the Tea Party just got tougher to beat. Your choice, folks.

Click here to give $5 or more to the DSCC. Every dollar will be matched, making your $5 gift equal $10. There’s $75,000 left to raise by midnight. Don’t let reality become a Tea Party nightmare!

We saw what Tea Party control looks like this week when Republicans held disaster relief hostage and demanded job-creation programs as a ransom. They came THIS CLOSE to shutting down the government. AGAIN.

Luckily, the Senate nipped that in the bud. Crisis averted. But if the Republicans pick up just four seats next November, the Tea Party wrecking crew will rule the Senate. And if that doesn’t scare you enough, think about this: That’s fewer seats than they gained last cycle.

So here’s what you gotta do right now: Give to the DSCC, and take advantage of the match! More than 90% of their gifts come from grassroots donors like you, and all of the contributions support one solitary goal: Keeping Republicans out of the Senate.

The DSCC still needs to raise $75,000 to meet its fundraising goal by midnight. Please click and give $5 or more now. Your $5 donation will be matched, turning it into a gift of $10. Don’t let reality become a Tea Party nightmare!

Here’s one more thought experiment: Picture how good you’ll feel in November 2012 when Democrats still hold the Senate. Happy? Relieved? Feel like you dodged a bullet?

You have the power to make that happen. Click and give, and stick it to the Tea Party. Let’s stop this nightmare before it starts.

    Over 30 years ago a family came to my town.(South Louisiana) Oil business drilling company family from Houston. We met by the happenstance of the two teenage girls next door. The family intro immediately included that they were not related to that (scumbag) lawyer James,, . I didn’t know who he was then, who he was to them, but they always disclaimed him.
