    Convention thoughts from Tom Webb


    Wednesday, September 01, 2004

    Partisan bash 

    Normally during convention week, I don't bother with the partisan e-mail blasts that clog my mailbox. Hey, both parties get a chance to make their own case, at their own convention, and that seems fair enough to me.

    But occasionally one of these e-mail barbs rises above the norm. The liberal Minnesota ACT group is busy composing satrical fake "postcards" that U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman might be sending from New York. Here's an excerpt:

    Dear Minnesotans...Tonight is my fundraiser with the fat-cats that are going to help me get to be head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Don't ask me who's attending guys, because I won't tell you. I know, I know, my younger self would have setup out front of the Upper East Side location with my bullhorn and fold-out table, shouting about special interests. But times, they are a'changin!
