PostHeaderIcon James Carville wants my money -- thanks, but no thanks.

I got an email pitch from the DSCC today, sent by James Carville. I guess they didn't understand that the gAyTM is closed. Here's my response:

To whom it may concern a the DSCC:

This ATM branch is closed until further notice. Why?

The Senate has yet to pass the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act, repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" or pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act... Or any of the other legislative priorities of GLBT Americans.

As a formerly regular contributor to Democratic causes and candidates, I will continue to donate on an individual basis -- but will no longer donate to formal Democratic party funds. Your continued failure to act on GLBT-equality issues -- and with the speed and force befitting the majority that donors like myself made possible -- is the reason.

The Democratic Party has the majority. On the above issues, you have a majority of the public in favor of the issues above -- in many cases in overwhelming numbers including majorities of Republicans! Act like it!

You want my money? Do what I sent you to the Senate to do. NOW.
