Because You All Needed Some Good News Today!
Got this in my e-mail this morning:
Dear MoveOn donor, Today, the TV ad that you made possible, "Smashing the Courts," goes on the air in four critical states: Maine, Nebraska, Oregon, and Virginia. The pressure it adds on Senators Snowe, Collins, Hagel, Smith, and Warner to preserve the filibuster could make all the difference. Thank you so much for stepping in: since Wednesday, more than 8,700 people have given over $446,000 to spread the word about this danger to our democracy. As you know, the circumstances in this fight have been changing by the minute, and I wanted to let you know that we've changed our ad strategy slightly since we last emailed. Instead of running targeted radio ads, we're now running "Smashing the Courts" in targeted states. And instead of running "Smashing the Courts" nation-wide, we've developed a new ad -- one of our favorites since the election -- that will be running in its place. Since you contributed the funds to make this happen, I wanted you to see this new ad first -- before we email it to the whole MoveOn membership. The ad portrays a herd of elephants ransacking the House and Senate and federal courts, as the narrator explains the context of the radical Republicans' power grab. You can watch the ad online at: http://www.moveonpac.org/ MoveOn works because together, we can do things that wouldn't be possible for any of us alone. We didn't have the funds to run these ads, but you and tens of thousands of others came to the rescue. In a fight of national proportions, your generosity will make a difference. Thanks again, --Eli Pariser Executive Director, MoveOn PAC April 25th, 2005MoveOn is made of you and me. Together, we're doing lots of good.
