Today’s fun video: Stewart tells Dems enough with the money grubbing


Anyone who has the misfortune to be on the national Democratic campaigns' e-mail list can relate to the incessant begging for money, supposedly from folks like President Obama, Vice President Biden and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (but really from some hack at a computer in the campaign offices.)

Spin Control mentioned it a few months ago in a Sunday column. But Jon Stewart on The Daily Show did a particularly good job of exposing the money grubbing by folks like the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (which, by the way, hasn't spent a dime on the congressional campaign in Eastern Washington in years).

Maybe Democrats will take the hint, and those in power will tell the folks who probably used to work for Nigerian bankers looking to make deals to transfer large sums to my bank account to Knock. It. Off.
