A LOYAL READER OF THE WASHINGTON NOTE HAS EMAILED ME a copy of the controversial RNC mailer that Associated Press reported had been mailed out in West Virginia. Talking Points Memo had a good post on this on the 17th of September.
The version I have posted was mailed out in Arkansas — so this template, which Ed Gillespie said he knew nothing about, is being used in multiple states.
The front of the mailer has a picture of the bible with the letters ‘BANNED’ on top with the letters ‘ALLOWED’ over two attractive men looking at each other and holding hands — a very nice picture by the way.
The scare line is: “This will be Arkansas. . .if you don’t vote.”
Here is the mailing.
This is the kind of right wing thing that has made centrists like myself look like lefists.
