An e-mail from a true American!
Dear Barbara,

The media follows the golden rule. He who has the gold makes the rules.

With that in mind, let's ask a question. What do Boeing, AT&T, America's Natural Gas Alliance, CTIA, McDonald's, and Goldman Sachs have in common?

They are all advertisers in Friday's issue of the Politico, the insider political magazine that controls much of the dialogue in Washington, DC. And that's just one day's issue. In fact, for the last year, the back page of the Politico has been occupied by a full-page Goldman Sachs advertisement. That's a direct revenue flow of thousands of dollars from Goldman Sachs to the magazine most politicians in DC rely on for political gossip.

Interestingly enough, here are the last six headlines from the Politico on me.

Dems accused of tea party tampering
GOP foe sues Grayson over DVD
Kelly: Grayson may want troops to die
Who's not on the DCCC list
The Age of Rage
No repeat blockbuster for Grayson

Every single headline is meant to damage me, to gin up pseudo-scandals or keep them going. We recognize this. It's what the media did to Bill Clinton, to Barack Obama, to Al Gore, to Michael Moore, and really, to anyone who is either a Democrat or puts forward the concept that America should be run for the benefit of the people and not the corporations.

On August 23, we're going to show them what people power can do -- my campaign is launching a moneybomb, and I need you to be a part of it.

Please contribute $25 or more now for the moneybomb.

Truth,

Alan Grayson

1. Wow, alot of them match du posts also.
Dems accused of tea party tampering
GOP foe sues Grayson over DVD
Kelly: Grayson may want troops to die
Who's not on the DCCC list
The Age of Rage
No repeat blockbuster for Grayson



I don't think I posted on the first one.

Someone posted on a DU lawsuit.

I just posted that in wars, killing people does not work, a side with many casualties gains support. The idea of peaceful resistance, didn't know there was a Grayson contriversy on that issue.

Age of Rage, I just posted Our Age, although I posted that because I don't like Rage, but that is really close to my post but with negative spin.

Not sure about the movie thing.
