Many of you know that I have this great political relationship with my mom– she’s fun to talk to about politics because she’s one of the few people I know that doesn’t tow the line of any political ideology. She goes for what she thinks is right, and I have a huge amount of respect for that.
In the last couple of years, she’s become more involved in fact-finding missions, and likes to investigate different candidates’ and parties’ viewpoints to help her make up her mind. So, when she received an email from the GOP asking her to watch Governor Jindal’s response to the President’s speech to Congress last night, she told me she was a little annoyed by it. Intrigued, I asked her why. Her response:
Well maybe I’m misunderstanding, but this just hit me wrong:
“…the way to lead is not raising taxes and putting more money in the hands of Washington, D.C. politicians.”
and then –
“Please make a secure online contribution of $2,000, $1,000, $500, $100,$50 or $25 today to support the RNC’s party-building and candidate recruitment programs.”
I’ll hold further comments until I’ve had a chance to hear the speech.
Go Mom! tee hee hee…
Monday is evidently a big house party day for the GOP (I’m on their email list, just so I can keep tabs on ‘em), so I decided to see if there was one I could actually go to in my area. I typed in my Brooklyn ZIP code, and it immediately took me to a page titled, “Create your own house party!”
No Repub’s in these parts, I guess. ;-)
