An Appeal from Michele Bachmann

Fellow Conservative,

I need your immediate attention.

This is so important I didn’t even take the time to format this email.

The DCCC (the Democrat’s top campaign operation) just released the names of races they are targeting funds for in 2012 as part of their national ‘Red to Blue’ campaign to take back the majority in the House of Representatives. This may come as no surprise- but my Democrat opponent was added to the ‘Red to Blue’ program as an emerging race.

The ‘Red to Blue’ program highlights top Democratic campaigns across the country, and offers them financial, communications, grassroots, and strategic support.

The DCCC has raised over $107 million this election cycle alone- and that number is sure to grow. Those millions are being thrown into races like mine, and when you combine that with my opponent’s wealth of over $111 million- one thing is for certain- this race is going to be costly and quite a challenge.

The Democrats along with the liberal media would love to see my campaign be defeated in November. They are clearly pulling out all the stops to see our conservative values be conquered this fall, but I know that our campaign has something they don’t yet know about- YOU. Your support has carried our campaign this far- and will carry us to victory this fall.

In order to show the DCCC the strength of our campaign – I need your immediate support.

Our primary is Tuesday, and our campaign has set a goal of raising $250,000 in the next 5 days. This is a steep goal- but your donation of $25, $50, $100 or more today will ensure we reach it. Please follow this link to make a contribution today.

I took off my politically correct glasses a long time ago. I am never afraid to say what is right and stand up to the “good ol’ boys” in Washington who have mismanaged our government for too long. I am not running for Congress because I want to climb a political ladder or win a popularity contest, but I am running for re-election so I can continue to stand up for our conservative values.

Our constitutional conservative campaign cannot afford to cede a single inch of ground to President Barack Obama and my liberal opponent this summer. With our primary less than a week away- your support is needed now more than ever.

As you know, the Democrats have cherry-picked a self-funding, multi-millionaire to oppose me in my re-election to Congress. My opponent is able to pour his own millions into his campaign — but I am relying on the donations of supporters like you today.

The fastest way to make a contribution to our campaign is by donating online. Please stand with our campaign and make a donation today.

Our conservative values are on the line this election. We must do everything we can to ensure they are not defeated.

– Michele

P.S. You and I have watched in abject horror as President Obama and the Democrats have wrought havoc on our liberty and our economic prosperity over the last three and a half years. If the Democrats take back the majority in Congress, reinstall Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House and re-elect a lame-duck President Obama, the damage would be incalculable. We cannot allow that! Show your support by making a contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more today.

NASA did an amazing thing a few days ago, landing a big giant amazing Science Robot on the Angry Red Planet, Mars. But to get to that point, to have The Ultimate Omelette, as it were, you’ve got to break a few eggs.

Here is what an egg looks like when NASA breaks it:

It doesn’t just sit there and burn…it keeps blowing up and stuff, so you may want to watch the whole video if you missed the Fourth of July.

This is/was the Morpheus Lander.

Morpheus is a vertical test bed vehicle demonstrating new green propellant propulsion systems and autonomous landing and hazard detection technology. Designed, developed, manufactured and operated in-house by engineers at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, the Morpheus Project represents not only a vehicle to advance technologies, but also an opportunity to try out “lean development” engineering practices.

So, it’s a good thing. I’m sure they’ll get it right, eventually.

Reminds me of my youth.
