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.”
Subject line of latest DCCC fundraising email: "begging…BEGGING." Come on DCCC, pull yourself together!

Given obnoxious number & ridiculous tone of @dccc's emails begging for money, if I'd ever have given them any, I'd be asking for it back!

My dog doesn't get rewarded for begging, and neither will the DCCC pic.twitter.com/iqAGinaBUZ

Maybe this approach isn’t working.
@dccc URGENT! I'm BEGGING you to stop emailing me. I've tried everything to unsubscribe.
