Mickey Kaus spotlights the most Orwellian fundraising pitch ever:

Hey friend — Our team is reviewing supporter records this weekend, and I noticed that you haven’t made an online donation yet. (I pasted your supporter record below):
Supporter record: 7331251
Name: , friend
2012 online support: pending
Suggested support: $5.00
Ensure your voluntary contribution to the party committee is up to date and generous, Komrade, so we may continue to fight for your privacy rights against big corporations!
