In the Nyhan mailbag: a RNC fundraising letter for the 2005 Durham Area Republican Party Annual Fund Drive. Partisan hackery ensues:
Many Democrats and their liberal allies refuse to recognize that the President's decisive reelection and our Party's important gains in the U.S. Senate and House are a powerful sign of the American people's strong support for President Bush's policies.
Then there's this:
Your support today is our best defense against the liberal special interest groups who hope to obstruct many of the President's most important initiatives and press on with their vision of a socialist/welfare state where taxes would be significantly higher, the government would takeover your health care, and the United Nations would decide what is in our national interest.
Watch out for the "socialist/welfare state"! Government takeover of health care! Boo!
I know direct mail is always ridiculous, but come the f--- on.
