A Letter From the G.O.P.

…Or rather, based on how the letter addresses me as a “conservative” (whatever that means), the email was probably generated by a bot calling itself “Rob, NRCC CFO.”

Here’s what he or it wrote in his/its email to me:

“Fellow Conservative,

Without your continued support, our conservative elected officials might not be in the majority in Washington. That’s why, out of our appreciation for your support, we want to offer an upgrade to your membership to the Elite Level.

Just take a stand for our president’s conservative majority, and we’ll upgrade your membership…

We couldn’t have achieved the same level of success in 2016 without you: the House, Senate, and the White House are all Republican thanks to you.

Now we must protect our majority from Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats during the 2018 midterm elections.

Our president is counting on you to help us keep the House during his presidency, and you can start right now by pitching in $10 or more to upgrade your NRCC Sustaining Membership to the Elite Level.”

Not that anybody will likely read it (even if there’s a hefty donation attached), but I replied to the email thusly:

Pray tell:
If you’re going to screw us just like the Democrats, what does it matter who has the majority?
