Emailing for dollars! The AG Greg Abbott edition

PinkDome has a true copy of the letter Attorney General Greg Abbott sent out soliciting for Fred Thompson. I'm editing it to appear as I think it should:

Dear (Redacted):
It’s all official like. Fred Thompson is finally running for President of the United States (you have no idea how relieved Patterson and I are!). And his campaign is really moving, like soup through an old man, which is why USAToday recently ran the headline: “Thompson Climbs in GOP 'over-90' Poll.”

I'm strongly supporting former Senator Thompson and I hope you will consider supporting him too. He needs us, much like he needs a hernia truss.

Next week Senator Thompson will be in Texas grubbing for money. Here is a quick summary of his schedule:

Austin Luncheon - Wednesday, September 19th (soup)
Houston Evening Reception - Wednesday, September 19th (liver and onions)
San Antonio Breakfast - Thursday, September 20th (soup)
Dallas Luncheon - Thursday, September 20th (soup)
Fort Worth Evening Reception - Wednesday, October 10th (chicken and rice)

Damn y'all, but don't the elderly eat a lot of soup?

If you are interested in joining me at one of these events, and making me look like THE fundraising BSD, please send an email to [], or call 512-4[redacted]. Tell them that Greg Abbott sent you because if I get 20 people to call or email I'll win a free set of them ginsu steak knives!

Even if your schedule won't permit you to join us, Senator Thompson would still like, and frankly EXPECTS, your money. You can click on the following link to contribute online:

Let me know if you’d like more details or are interested in attending. Feel free to respond to this email if you have any questions. I can't guarantee that anyone will contact you but we might at least try.
