Bernie Sanders lends his e-list to Russ Feingold this morning for a defiant missive which is either sort of yucky or a bit too kinky depending on your point of view:
My opponent, multimillionaire Ron Johnson, thinks his checkbook can decide this election. He’s so confident about winning that he's already pledged to spend upward of $15 million of his own fortune, or "all of it," to win.
Today, September 15, my campaign is launching our newest effort:"15 for 15 Cheddarbomb." We'll match Ron Johnson's $15 million with the donations of 15,000 grassroots donors. This is our first-ever "moneybomb" or as we call it in Wisconsin – a "Cheddarbomb." Our "Cheddarbomb" will show that my campaign can match Johnson's $15 million with 15,000 grassroots donations of our own – in a single day.
I suppose this means Feingold is willing to sacrifice the vegan vote to entice independents, but is he not concerned about what might happen when this thing blows and leaves the streets strewn with spare tire-saddled men and muffin-topped women?
Also, I love this cheesy-yet-not-cheese-related line: "Ron Johnson and the extremists want to win this election bad."
Unlike Russ, who could care less if he wins the election, which he is really just using as a vehicle for his dastardly CHEDDARBOMB!
(Cue Dem go-to guy John Cougar Mellencamp re-recording of "Cherry Bomb.")
