Nutroots not happy with Dems

Bill in Portland Maine wrote on Daily Kos I just got an email from the DCCC. Oh my God. They really---to borrow a phrase someone else used today---are trying to piss on us and call it rain. It starts out:

Breaking News: Because of your help, the House just passed legislation that will go to the White House that includes critical issues Democrats have been fighting for including: canceling the President's blank check in Iraq, raising the minimum wage, and increased funding for military health care and veterans' benefits, and help for victims of Hurricane Katrina.
They forgot to add that they will try to fill with a lot of pork if it goes into a conference committee.
Dear Bill,

Two weeks ago, President Bush vetoed our legislation to demand accountability in Iraq and declared he would only sign a bill without any accountability for his management of the war.
And he didn't
Now, the President has agreed to accountability and reporting provisions. That means for the first time we can force the President to be held accountable for his endless war in Iraq. We canceled the President's blank check in Iraq.
If you can't win, just say you won. Maybe the nutroots will be stupid enough to believe it. Or maybe not.
Why the sudden change? It's because of you that we have taken this first important step. You stood with us here at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) every step of the way. You signed petitions against the President's failed policies, spoke out on the need to change course in Iraq, and wrote letters-to-the-editors in support of the issues
And gave us a lot of money. Please send more money.
Americans care about.... I hope I can count on your continued support.
You insult me, sir. And I will not be insulted. Go to hell.

JFern commented The Democrats are really clueless. I'm sure they'll find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in 2008.
From your lips to God's ear.
FishOutOfWater commented We need to teach them what accountability means. No more blank checks for the DCCC.

Hi, Don!

Yeah, we're not real happy with out team at the moment, and we're giving them an earful. I'm sure your side has had your share of "Whaaaa...???" moments, too.

But, it'll pass. It's one skirmish in a larger campaign. We'll shake it off and move on.

But, yeah...we're wakin' up on the wrong side of the bed today.
