Hi Harold,

When I first introduced legislation with Russ Feingold to set fire to the Republicans putting up a roadblock to our efforts, the dirtbags in Congress, succumbing to White House pressure from the President to back off on this, didn't do anything. And the President vetoed our efforts.

It's time for that to change. It's time to set fire to these Roadblock Republicans:

The Republicans are already showing signs of fireproofing. Many are running away from this President's disastrous policy because they know they are flammable. But that's not enough; we need to incinerate the GOP on this one. To do that, we need to spray them with gasoline in a voice loud enough that they can't help but hear it, and we need to let it soak into their clothes in the language any politician understands: Zippo Lighters.

So we're launching a molotov cocktail on critical points in the GOP caucus. We are targeting a few key Senators for this blaze: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will be immolated. Senators Sununu, Collins, and Coleman will suffer third degree burns. The last three are already top races for 2008, and Senator McConnell is the bulwark of the GOP leadership on this. For that, he will end up looking like the Buddhist guy on the front of that Rage Against the Machine album.

So go here to contribute to a fund run by our friends at that will go to the eventual fires spread in those states and then write an email message to those Senators explaining why you did this. Remember, gasoline prices are skyrocketing, so it's going to take a lot of money to buy enough gasoline to ensure the proper incineration of these Republicans.

This is an extraordinary campaign; to my knowledge, nothing quite like this has ever been done. But these fires can make all the difference in each of these races, and these Senators will know it. Senator McConnell is secure in his belief that no one will be able to combust the air around him. We can show that he's wrong. The other Senators are already top targets in 2008, but they hope the power of asbestos and drinking lots of water can save them. We can show them that the power of Washington won't stand against the power of fire.

We can raise the temperatures for them and make the heat they feel from the fire greater than the pressure they feel from the White House. And when that happens, they just might help tell this President that his policy is a disaster and we must change course -- Or he'll be next to catch fire.

Let's clear the way for a new fire -- let's insist on a fire that lives up to the sacrifice of our incredible matches:

Who the fuck is Harold?

Sacky said...

That's not the point.

The names have been changed to protect the immolated.

Funky Smith said...

Yes but who Harold is?

Sacky said...

Harold is Harold.

He drives a '76 Ford Pinto.

It's green. Lime green.
