Dag na dag na dag na dag komen er boodschappen (persoonlijke boodschappen!) van Barack en zijn cornuiten binnen, en van Hillary en trawanten: ik heb me ingeschreven op beide campagnes.
Vandaag sprong deze er uit:
The Clinton campaign just announced that Hillary and Bill Clinton injected $5 million of their personal fortune into her campaign a few days ago.
This is a dramatic move, and a clear acknowledgement that our campaign has the momentum. We saw undeniable evidence of that last night as the results came in.
Barack Obama won the most states and the most delegates on February 5th.
We have gotten to this point thanks to an unprecedented outpouring of support from ordinary Americans.
To date, more than 650,000 people like you have taken ownership of this campaign, giving whatever they can afford.
The Clinton infusion of $5 million — and there are reports it could end up being as much as $20 million — will give them huge resources for the next set of primaries and caucuses.
Thanks to you, we have raised more than $3 million since the polls closed on February 5th. But we have no choice — we must match their $5 million right now.
We’re going to do it the right way, with small donations from people like you. It’s never been more urgent that you make a donation of $25 right now:
Basisdemocratie, op een bepaalde manier, vermoed ik, als je de de kiezer laat betalen voor (een groot stuk van) de campagne.
Maar zo schaamteloos, en zo schuldgevoelinducerend… iek.
