Money Bomb for Jack Conway (and against Rand Paul)

Via Wes Clark:
Do you remember Rand Paul?

He's the extreme tea party Republican candidate for Senate in Kentucky who went on Rachel Maddow's show to oppose provisions in the Civil Rights Act after his surprise victory in the primary.

Since then, he's gone on to talk about opposing the Americans with Disabilities Act, Medicare, and federal financial aid for students.

Imagine a destructive force like Rand Paul in the U.S. Senate. It would be a disaster.

I need you to help Jack Conway, Paul's Democratic opponent. Jack launched a moneybomb today for his Conway Fight Fund. I'm joining supporters all over the country coming together to help beat Rand Paul.

I know Jack could use your help too.

Click here to contribute $5 or more to Jack Conway's moneybomb to beat Rand Paul now!

Today, supporters from all over the country have pledged to make contributions in the same 24 hours.

It will stand as a sign of our determination, a sign of our unity, and a sign that people all across the country are coming together to beat Rand Paul.

Jack Conway has spent years protecting people as Kentucky's attorney general, including many of the very people Rand Paul would leave out to dry.

Jack also went after prescription drug companies and financial fraudsters, supported Wall Street reform, and has promised to vote for filibuster reform if given the chance.

Rand Paul's campaign manager has been caught on tape saying "that each individual Senator has the power to blow up legislation, so Rand Paul can blow up so much" legislation he doesn't like.

And believe me, there's basically no such thing as legislation Rand Paul likes. He'd be a one-man wrecking crew.

I can't emphasize the importance of electing Jack Conway and defeating Rand Paul. We have to win this.

I don't know the rules, I don't know how it works, but apparently individual Senators can put a personal hold on legislation. Apparently Tom Coburn put so many personal holds on legislation that Harry Reid introduced a tomnibus bill, which had some (although not all) of the bills Coburn had held up in a bundle (apparently not something Coburn could stop by himself). Even though Republicans say they are embarrassed by Coburn, not enough voted for the tomnibus bill for it to pass.

I have friends in Kentucky. I think it is their issue, their senator. I will stay out of it and let them decide. Would we like it if outsides were trying to tell us how to vote for OUR representatives?

Like they don't already?

Off the top of my head: see Club For Growth and those ubiquitous U.S. Chamber of Commerce TV ads.
