Itís Too Late, Baby, Now Itís Too Late

Itís too late.

Whatís too late? Avoiding the fiscal cliff? The world ending on Dec. 21, 2012? You winning the $942 million 2012 Spanish Christmas lottery? April showers bringing May flowers?

Quite possibly. But thatís not what weíre talking about.

Itís too late for you to give a Christmas gift to our campaign. Or Chanukah gelt. Or Kwanzaa bucks. Itís just too late.

But donít fret. It is not too late for you to make a New Years Day contribution to our campaign. And we would be grateful for that, because we still have bills left over from the November election. So please. We donít want to start off 2013 in debt, like . . . like . . . like, well, the federal government, for instance.

Please send some dollars our way to make it a Happy New Year for us, our oh-so-patient creditors, and perhaps even yourself, knowing that you have given a boost to the campaign of someone who will make a difference. Someone who will fight for the things that you care about. Someone who will say the things that everyone is thinking, but no one else is saying. Our Congressman With Guts, Alan Grayson.

Contribute today. When you do, we feel the earth move, under our feet.

You have only 72 hours. Surely, it doesnít take that long to click here. After that, itís too late.

ďItís too late, baby, now itís too late,
Though we really did try to make it.
Something inside has died, and I canít hide,
And I just canít fake it.Ē


- Carole King, ďItís Too LateĒ (1971).

1. Dear Alan Grayson

I'd be happy to contribute, because you belong in government
and are one of the few bravest voices.

But I am poor, barely paying the bills. I've heard you are
very wealthy.

If you want to send me some extra money then I
can contribute, otherwise can not afford it -- but wish you
great success, clarity & wisdom in your work.

With warm regards,
from a fan of truth and integrity.

2. I already contributed, my first campaign contribution ever

Last time around, I just couldn't do it, but this time I could, so I made my first contribution to you and the president. And I'm in NY...
