Mighty Encouraging

Naked Politics says the DCCC is tired of getting pissed on and i'll quote most the article since it lays it down succinctly:

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is going after 28 Republicans with radio ads bashing them for opposing the economic stimulus package.

Among those targeted: Miami Reps. Lincoln Diaz-Balart and Mario Diaz-Balart, St. Pete's Bill Young and newly-elected Tom Rooney. All four represent districts where Dems believe they could have a shot in 2010.

The DCCC says the ads "focus on the Republicans out of step priorities by putting bank bail outs and building schools in Iraq before the needs of the Americans in the struggling economy." They begin airing during drive time Tuesday and run for a week.

One thing I'd like to say about the following which I don't like:

The DCCC says it will also launch a grassroots initiative -- e-mails to 3 million voters and nearly 100,000 phone calls.

Um, sending emails from a list serv isn't a grassroots initiative, neither is a direct mailing. If they told people to write in to these congressional folks, organized protests outside, etc. then it'd be grassroots. Regardless I'll applaud the DCCC, the Diaz Balart's haven't had a thought of their own since 1955 if it's not becaue they know their political survival is threatened [SCHIP]. I'm glad to see the DCCC doing campaigns all the time.
