RNC Fundraising letter: what to do?
Today I received my second plea from the RNC to send money. A lifelong Democrat, I'm not completely sure how I got on their list; by the way they've written my name, it's either my church (Episcopalian, liberal and gay-friendly) or my subscription to Foreign Affairs.

ANYWAY. What I want to know is, what should I send back to them in their postage-prepaid envelope?

3. Send them two cents
And make sure you note that you are making a donation. It'll cost them way more than 2 cents to process the donation.

We get the same thing around here, and dh and I are life-long dems. I think it is our new zip code or something.

4. Print This Graphic And Enclose It In The Reply Envelope
Never Forget The Face Of American Fascism
'THIS IS NO DIFFERENT THAN WHAT HAPPENS AT THE SKULL & BONES INITIATION...I'M TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE HAVING A GOOD TIME. THESE PEOPLE -- YOU EVER HEARD OF EMOTIONAL RELEASE? YOU EVER HEARD OF NEEDING TO BLOW SOME STEAM OFF?'

8. Calvin Trillin had a suggestion for postage-paid envelopes in junk mail
Write a nice note thanking them for giving you the pp envelope but telling them that you're not a Republican and had rather not waste their money.

10. I've gotten them to.
I think they hit the phone book in different communities just to see what they dredge up. I usually send them back with a cryptic note not to send me anymore.

11. Wads of cut up paper to approximate size and weight of cash.
Just for the hell of it... put a dollar on each side to pique their interests...

Or a bunch of condoms and a tastefully worded letter encouraging them to not contribute to the gene pool.

A bunch of q-tips might also send a much needed message.

No bubble gum though... as the marble dust just might scare the daylights out'a them...

15. Thanks all for your wonderful suggestions!
I'm now torn between making a statement (with a fake check with a figure representing the deficit, or a condom) or doing something that will be aggravating and cost them money (like sending them $0.02).

18. a flounder fillet, wrapped in the original request
make sure you send it 3 day ground, with a message like:

Your platform and your candidate are both fishy.
