A friend on the Seventh Congressional Republicans' email list shared the following fundraising pitch from the loyal opposition under the subject line, "Beer and Football":
...are just some of the few great freedoms Americans get to enjoy. But as working class Minnesotans, we are taxed to death and soon we won't be able to afford these simple luxeries.
I've got news for you. Its only going to get worse. If we let the Democrats take charge of the house our already bloated government is going take more from our ever shrinking savings. They won't stop till they take everything! . . .
Bluestem isn't sure who absconded with the committee's spell check program and apostrophe in that contraction of "it is" in the second sentence of the second paragraph, but we hope the cad gives both back.
We also hope that the Republicans in Minnesota's Seventh District discover that Americans enjoy more than a "few great freedoms" in addition to the simple enjoyment of beer and football.
