I do believe they have lost their minds. Has the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee just become another Media Matters? Good grief.

Friend —

Your commitment to fighting for the President’s vision for America’s future and the Democratic Party’s agenda for change, confirms my firm belief that we’re going to have the resources to contest every seat in 2010 and be fully prepared for these crucial midterm elections.

Because of your dedication to the DCCC, I am personally inviting you to join our State of the Union “Fact Check FOX” Team.

Join our mobile “Fact Check FOX” rapid response team by using your mobile phone to text DCCC to 35328 or clicking here to sign up (standard message rates apply).

This group of Democratic Party activists will stand at the ready to counter the lies and distortions that erupt from the right-wing media and Republican spin doctors like Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck following President Obama’s State of the Union address tonight. You will receive rapid response fact check text alerts and a direct line to our Rapid Response team to tell us when you see Republican pundits and Members of Congress twisting the truth.

If you don’t have a cell phone, you can also send in your “Fact Check Fox” reports to our rapid response team at [email protected], or via Facebook or Twitter.

This initiative of the DCCC’s Rapid Response Network is an essential component of our 2010 campaign strategy.

It’s this dedicated army of grassroots activists that gives us the capacity to counter the right wing’s massive propaganda machine.

Thank you again for your generous support. It’s clear evidence that grassroots Democrats reject the doom and gloom scenarios spun by right-wing media pundits about the Democratic Party’s agenda. Working together I know we can achieve the change we voted for in 2008.

Thank you,

Jon Vogel
DCCC Executive Director

P.S. I need to recruit 5,000 new members to our “Fact Check FOX” Team by midnight tonight. Can I count on you? We need to stand together to counter the misleading statements and outright lies of the Republican media machine.
