Al Franken: Help me help Sherrod Brown #p2

Al Franken - U.S. Senator, Minnesota
I’ve noticed something about the right-wing attack machine: Great progressives drive them absolutely nuts.

Sure, they’ll attack anyone who doesn’t agree that corporations are people, Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, and global warming is a hoax (that every legitimate scientist is in on).  But they really lose their minds when they encounter a true progressive who gets results for working families.

And they have gone positively crackers in their negative campaign against my friend Sherrod Brown, throwing everything they can at him -- to the tune of more than $3.5 million in attack ads on Ohio T.V. already.

I’m helping Sherrod fight back -- and you should, too.  His campaign has to raise $200,000 by the end of the month.  Can you knock $20 off that goal by clicking here right now?

I work with Sherrod a lot -- and you’d be hard-pressed to find a more forceful advocate for the middle class.  Less raspy?  Maybe.  But more forceful?  No way.

That’s why the right-wing attack machine has zeroed in on Sherrod.  They can’t stand the idea that a guy who wears his progressive values on his sleeve not only gets to serve in the U.S. Senate, but gets things done there.  Sherrod’s won fights on behalf of working people his whole career -- and if we want to win these fights in the future, we’d better make sure he keeps his seat in November.

Every right-wing special interest group in Washington has Ohio’s Senate race at the top of their wish lists in 2012.  Sherrod really drives them berserk.  It’s one of my favorite things about him.

And the only thing that would drive these radicals crazier would be if we helped him overcome their attacks and win.

Thanks for helping me help Sherrod keep driving the far right around the bend.


P.S.: I have it on good authority that another thing that makes the right-wing attack machine flip out is when I include an extra “ask” in the P.S. of a fundraising email.  Seriously, they’re reading this right now and just freaking out -- pounding on their desks, tearing out their hair, the whole deal.  And if you want to get them completely unglued, you could click here and prove that the “extra ask in the P.S.” trick works by donating $10 or more to Sherrod’s campaign right now!
