You ain’t gonna believe this one.

This week, Sarah Palin actually went on Fox News to defend Big Oil companies like British Petroleum against “demonizing.” Are you kidding me?

Big Oil knows that Republicans are on their side. That’s why their special interests helped the GOP chalk up two straight record-breaking fundraising months, hoping to bring back another Congress full of Bush-Cheney Big Oil cronies.

Right now, the DCCC is launching a Million Dollar Match campaign to raise $1 million before the June 30th FEC deadline. Media pundits will use our grassroots totals to measure our will to hold British Petroleum accountable and take on Republican opponents of clean energy.

Send the “Drill Baby Drill” crowd a deafening message that we won’t back down. Help Democrats raise $1 million before the June 30th FEC deadline. Contribute $5, $10 or more today and a group of committed Democrats will match your gift dollar-for-dollar.

As a native son of Louisiana, there’s a lot of things I want to do to British Petroleum right about now and “demonizing” them doesn’t even make the cut. But we’ve seen this before from the “Drill Baby Drill” crowd. Remember Dick Cheney letting Big Oil write America’s energy policy? Those are the days that Republicans will try and bring back if they win Congress this year.

June 30th is the first FEC deadline since Republicans broke records with their fundraising from special interests. It’s our best chance to send a clear message that while Republicans defend Big Oil against “demonizing,” Democrats will hold them accountable like never before. 

Send the “Drill Baby Drill” crowd a deafening message that we won’t back down. Help Democrats raise $1 million before the June 30th FEC deadline. Contribute today and a group of committed Democrats will match your gift dollar-for-dollar.

While Republicans rake it in from Big Oil special interests, let’s use this June 30th FEC deadline to show the media and companies like British Petroleum what grassroots Democrats are made of.

Thanks,
James Carville
