Fundraising emails from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee have become so desperate-sounding that even Josh Marshall, editor of the liberal Talking Points Memo, has called the DCCC “your new borderline personality boyfriend/girlfriend.”

The email that caught Marshall’s attention was headed, “We’re done. Go home. Give up,” which follows pleas like, “I need you,” “please don’t say no,” “disappointed,” “All Hope Is Lost,” and “ACCEPT DEFEAT.” Today’s entry: “begging…BEGGING.”

Maybe this approach isn’t working.
