Taking a cue from the Frank Luntz School of Media Savvy, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) sent out an rather interesting email this past weekend. It says, in part:
Washington – Despite a myriad of polls showing that a vote in favor of a government takeover of healthcare would be directly at odds with the interests and values of her constituents, Mark Schauer, instead chose to stand with President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
And later, in the same email:
“By ignoring the overwhelming majority of her constituents, and voting in favor of Nancy Pelosi’s government takeover of healthcare, Mark Schauer has fueled a level of anger and frustration within the constituency he claims to represent,” said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain.
Congressman Schauer (MI-07) is, as you have probably already figured out for yourself, a man.

I’m pretty danged proud of my Congressman just about now. I believe he cast an historic vote this past weekend and I, for one, am impressed by his leadership, his thoughtfulness and his position on the reform of our nation’s health insurance system.
Meanwhile, as they play cutty-cutty, pastey-pastey with their emails and send them out across the country, the NRCC can’t even get the sex right of the person they are trying to slam.
Lame, rookie, fail move, NRCC. Well-played.
I’m just sayin’…
