Patricia Phillips Has An EMERGENCY!!!!!!

By Loudoun Insider

Damn it, I’m so peeved that embedding is disabled on this clip (please watch it on YouTube by clicking the link)!  This was my great-humored grandmother’s favorite line from her favorite movie of all time – The Russians are Coming.  She used to whip this line out all the time to get a laugh, and it always worked with me!

And that line popped into my head as soon as I read this hysterical fundraising email (below the fold) from Patricia Phillips.  Dear Lord, it looks like she has Eugene Delgaudio writing her fundraising appeals now.  I do feel sorry for her for being steamrollered by Dick Black, but this is just too much.  I guess you could say she’s had an electoral emergency ever since Dick Black came back from the political graveyard!

Dear Friend,

After the lame duck session of congress passed more oppressive, anti-liberty legislation in just weeks, we have even more hard work to do! More than ever your conservative values need a voice in Richmond – that is where the next battle ground will take place. A critical step is your financial support for my upcoming State Senate campaign! You can be a part of making our campaign for common sense government, of the people, by the people and for the people, successful with your EMERGENCY CONTRIBUTION right now of $100, $50, or $25 dollars.

There are less than two days left until the financial deadline — if we are to be successful this year, if we are to take back the State Senate in Richmond, your action is needed to now. The democrat incumbent is being bank-rolled by liberal special interests, but you and your interests will be represented in Richmond, regardless of whether you can vote for me.

Thanks to many of you who have already “clicked” to make a contribution! I cannot thank you enough! However, we still need to raise $5,000 before midnight December 31, 2010 – to begin this year the right way. Please make an EMERGENCY CONTRIBUTION of $100, $50, or $25 right now!

$100 Emergency Contribution One month of phone and internet access so our volunteers at HQ can contact voters

$50 Emergency Contribution One large Phillips for Senate sign

$25 Emergency Contribution One week of phone access so our volunteers can contact voters

Recently this video of Sen. Rockefeller was brought to my attention. He explains why he thinks the FCC should restrict the airwaves of competing ideas. This is the kind of government control we are up against and need to fight!

Without your EMERGENCY CONTRIBUTION right now, we won’t be able to build the strong momentum we need to take back the State Senate. Please, I implore you, to make a generous EMERGENCY CONTRIBUTION right now, so that we can together go to Richmond, and stand against tax hikes, over regulation, and the ongoing assault on our Virginian family values at the hands of the liberal State Senate. Let’s stand together as we head into a New Year. Let’s stand for our families, our liberties, and our values – and after we have done everything – to stand! Please stand with me right now in this crucial hour, by making an EMERGENCY CONTRIBUTION of $100, $50, or $25. Thank you very much for your support.

Sincerely,

Patricia Phillips

    Get a life. It’s the last day of 2010, and she’s trying to buff up, just like everybody else. No story here…except you trying to bash someone who’s done more positive work in the party over the last three years….yes, even complimenting Glen Caroline’s team. .. than you’d be capable of in five years.
    Never seen you make phone calls, walk neighborhoods or anything that Patricia has READILY done for us.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    F you Monk, my life is just fine. She’s a nice woman and does alot foir her causes, but that email is hysterical nonsense.

  • The Bulletproof Monk says:

    I don’t doubt that your life is just fine….and dandy. You get to sit home on a fat duff while we’re out beating doors and manning phones. But you get to point fingers and make “absolutely alarming” posts like this over absolutely nothing…against someone who walked the walk and talked the talk , even when the candidates weren’t “near and dear” to her.
    At least have some class and climb off of the woman. She stayed right in there with us in 2008 after the complete turn around of that committee. And she never, ever slacked. I respect the hell outta that lady.

  • Intriguing says:

    BPM, for goodness sake, get the stick out of your ass. I think the point of the post is that any candidate calling for an “Emergency Contribution” is over the top. Your reaction to the post is downright prissy.

    I don’t know if LI has a “fat duff” or not, but your use of the term is unsettling. There are many people who struggle to control their weight and it seems like you could show a bit more compassion to people over the holidays.

    Also, for someone who calls out others for having a “fat duff”, I can’t remember seeing you at any of the Ronald Reagan Lecture Series events – ever.

  • Bwana says:

    Speaking as one who does have a fat duff and is currently reposing on it, this mailling-while typical in timing and is being done by many candidates, is over the top and deserves to be noted as such…unless this contribution is to help pay for a new years party, in which case it really IS an emergency contribution.

    Think of it this way-if this had come from Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid or Jim Moran, what would your reaction be? LI’s reaction is to the language, not the candidate.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    I have indeed put on a few pounds as I’ve aged, but I am nowhere near fat, and he knows it. It’s typical BPM “bravado”. I’ve never been a phone call and door knocking person, and I can exercise my right to free speech whether I’ve made one thousand calls or zero.

    And by no means am I on top of her. The email is ridiculous and my commentary stands for what it is.

  • Scout says:

    It’s important to the health of the Republican Party and the political processes at all levels of government that ridiculous emails and direct mail stuff get publicly ridiculed at every turn, no matter who posts it. We are deluged by this utter crap and every candidate or aspiring candidate who is a party to it should be hooted out of town (of course, who, if anyone, is left after that happens is another story). I consider myself a friend and admirer of both LI and BPM, and have been sorry to witness their falling out. However, one can make a solid argument, I submit, that bringing down ridicule on juvenile campaign and fund-raising copy within the GOP is worth a lot of door-knocking and envelope licking (especially if said envelopes contain the kind of nasty, pre-school level, monkey-on-a-typewriter copy that seems to have become the stock and trade of nearly every candidate). I don’t care if Dems do it, but the GOP needs to have a few voices standing up for adult intelligence. Ridicule and laughter are the best counterweights to this kind of nonsense. During the campaign last year, I was ready to put a phosphorous grenade in my mailbox virtually every day, there was so much moronic garbage. My e-mails are similarly plagued. Let’s never miss a chance to hoot these people out of the public square.

  • Linda B says:

    I like Patricia and want to help her campaign, but the idea that my hard-earned cash would be going into a big pile of funds to pay for phone calls and large signs doesn’t exactly give me the warm fuzzies. I mean, I know that’s what campaign $ does, but it seems to me the better tact is to focus on the end result, the part that affects the voter — the issues she’ll fight for and the votes she’ll make. I think she needs a new copywriter all the way around.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    EMERGENCY!!! is toned down in this one, but now she lets us know (I honestly did not know this) that we can claim a tax deduction for our contribution! This is ridiculous! I know she didn’t enact this law, but what a BS deduction, pols thinking of themselves once again before anything else. But it’s even more ridiculous to have a supposed fiscal conservative touting this.

    Here’s the latest email:

    At this critical time in our country, it’s easy to focus on all the problems and all the things that need fixing. But on this last day of 2010, I’d like to give you an uplifting reminder of the shoulders we have to stand on! (Brief ad, before news clip starts)
    Sunset at Cape May

    Many people thank me for stepping out and being willing to take the blows that come from entering the political arena and for putting in the constant, hard work required to run a successful campaign – but when I am reminded of what our forefathers sacrificed in fighting for our liberty, my sacrifice is so small. I guess when putting things into perspective, I can ask you one last time (in 2010 that is!) to contribute to the Phillips for Senate Campaign. Really, it is a small price, a small sacrifice we all can make to help restore and preserve the incredible design of limited self-government given to us by our forefathers.
    With less than 24 hours left until the year 2011- and the end of this critical financial reporting deadline – please make your final donation of the year of $240, $96, $48, or $24, right now online on out web page.
    $48 New Years’ Celebration A week and half of phone access at HQ
    $24 New Year’s Celebration Mail to 50 supporters
    $12 New Year’s Celebration 3 days of phone and internet at HQ
    Friends, stand with me right now, against the liberal Obama agenda and against the liberal special interest incumbents in the State Senate that stand with them. With less than 24 hours left – let’s stand for one last time together in 2010 – stand with me now! Make your EMERGENCY CONTRIBUTION of $48, $24, or $12
    Sincerely,
    Patricia Phillips
    P.S. Many Virginian’s don’t know that you can claim a tax credit on your Virginia tax return for donations to Virginia political campaigns (maximum credit is $25 filing single, $50 filing as a couple). So for those who have not yet donated this year, a $100 contribution by a couple will actually only cost you $50 out of pocket, after you file your Virginia return. (Click here for details) You have to contribute before midnight tonight to get the credit on this year’s tax return; however just click here and you will get a return receipt by e-mail almost instantly.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    And what’s with the multiples of 12 now???

  • Linda B says:

    I think it makes total sense for fiscal conservatives to tout tax deductions. Still not impressed with what my $ will buy, though.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    But for political campaigns??? I am not a fan of targeted deduction trying to shape taxpayers’ behavior, and this one is nothing more than politicians feathering their own nests. It’s disgusting, and yet another horrifying window into the Richmond political world.

  • G. Stone says:

    Linda B has a great observation, voters and supporters want to know what your about, not the laundry list of stuff you need.

    So from a plea for money which lets face it a pretty minor issue, we have created yet another post beating up on and taking to task another Republican candidate. If that candidate had lets say tossed a bag of puppies in the Potomac, now that would be blog post fodder. However, choosing poor verbiage for a fund raising letter does not rise to the occasion. Comparing the issue to the operational methods of others for whom you dislike politically is a cute way to jab those foes in your life.

    Using a fund raising letter by Patricia to create another blog post that ends up beating up on Black and Delgaudio ( both are strategically mentioned in the post and are the real subject matter here lets be honest ) is tedious. As much as it pains me to say, if you really feel the need for another anti Black or Delgaudio thread then just post another one and stop using others as some round about linkage in order to tread again on subject matter previously beaten to death, beyond death actually.

    Stop reaching over your head to scratch your ass. If your ass itches just reach down and scratch it. It is a hell of a lot easier.

  • Intriguing says:

    G.Stone, I think you are being just a wee bit inconsistent. You have frequently referenced the political arena as being a “marketplace of ideas.” I agree with this notion. And yet, when someone puts a bucket of shit into the marketplace of ideas, like a poorly written campaign fundraising appeal, who also happens to have an (R) next to their name, you ALWAYS give them a free pass. Why is that? Why is it that you are unable to call a spade a spade consistently? Why do certain things make your ass itch some of the time, but not all of the time? I just don’t get it.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Lighten the F up, Stone! Jeez. Believe me, if Mark Herring sent out an email like this I’d be all over him as well. ED is well known for his hysterical fundraising pleas (and by hysterical I don’t mean the funny type, although they usually conform to both definitions, if one unintentionally) and DB was indeed a huge setback to PP’s political plans. Of course DB may just be moving elsewhere, leaving PP to self immolate against Mark Herring, but we’ll see.

    As much as you diehard LCRCers want to deny it, neither DB or PP is going to beat Mark Herring. It ain’t gonna happen. Sorry. Find a candidate in the mold of Tag Greason or Lori Waters it becomes a possibility, but not with Dick Black or Patricia Phillips.

  • Linda B says:

    LI, agreed that tax deductions for political campaigns is suspect. However, since they exist, I have no problem with a candidate touting them. Putting money back into the pockets of the citizens is a good thing.

    Perhaps Patricia should add “hire a better copywriter” to her laundry list … she might make a fortune.

  • This is pretty standard in terms of a last minute fundraising request – it’s not so much an EMERGENCY for us, as it is an EMERGENCY for her because she hasn’t raised any money and today’s the end of the reporting deadline. I think it’s odd to be bashing Obama when you’re running for state office, but I guess since we control everything but the Senate, there aren’t that many boogeymen left.

    The only thing surprising about these two letters is that she never mentioned Ronald Reagan. That’s very uncharacteristic.

  • G. Stone says:

    Intriguing

    A thinly veiled poke at others couched as a critique of a inter party fund raising letter and your camped out in the marketplace of ideas ? You gotta be shitting me. You are searching for something meaningful to say and failing.

  • G. Stone says:

    Lighten the F up, Stone! Jeez.

    Hey don’t your panties in a wad just because I got this figured out.

    happy new Year

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Stone, here’s a new flash for you, a strong majority of voters in Loudoun County do not want anything to do with Eugene Delgaudio or Dick Black. Patricia Phillips isn’t at that level, but she’s not setting the county on fire either. If the LCRC would spend its time recruiting appealling candidates instead of trotting out these extremists we wouldn’t be in this sorry situation.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Just as a I denied having a fat ass, I’ll also deny that I wear panties! Happy New Year to you too, I’m glad you have me figured out. And guess what, I’m much more representative of most Loudoun voters than you or any other diehard LCRC member. So find some candidates that I find appealling and you guys may have a good year electorally.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Oh wait a minute, candidate search and recruitment is headed up by a famous RINO Hunter. Never mind.

  • The Bulletproof Monk says:

    “The only thing surprising about these two letters is that she never mentioned Ronald Reagan. That’s very uncharacteristic.”
    LMAO!!!!!
    As to LI’s fat ass…it’s a figure of speech, not an identification of their physique.

  • G. Stone says:

    “If the LCRC would spend its time recruiting appealing candidates instead of trotting out these extremists we wouldn’t be in this sorry situation.”

    Find them encourage them to run. The problem is many really good people do not want subject themselves to the crap. Further, those who are not independently wealthy, have a spouse who makes ig bucks or are retired having a nice pension can’t afford to run and take on what is in essence a full time job. I am talking about the BOS here. This is the real issue in these tough economic times. I know several folks who would run and make very good supervisors if they could get over the $$$ hurdle. For those who are going to chime in saying the BOS is a pert time job, save it !

  • BlackOut says:

    Stoner, most reasonable candidates won’t touch the current flavor of the LCRC. That’s your first problem, it’s not finding them or encouraging them to run.

    I do agree with you about the crap and financial issues candidates have to endure.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    “Stoner, most reasonable candidates won’t touch the current flavor of the LCRC. That’s your first problem, it’s not finding them or encouraging them to run.”

    BO, I hope in 2011 you cease telling people that are currently involved with and working with the LCRC “how it is”. It’s not only annoying, it makes you look silly. You have no knowledge, information (inside or otherwise) or inclination to agree with ANY of us (active LCRC members) on anything – so kindly bug off.

    Now go back to bashing Dick Black.

  • BlackOut says:

    LL, look I am telling it like it is. The image is what it is. One doesn’t have to be a member to see it. In fact, if you’re a kool-aid drinking member and blinded by loyalty it’s hard to swallow the truth. There are no mirrors in your world.

    Underneath the LCRC image is some good folks, but with your constant illuminations it certainly doesn’t change what those that aren’t members think about the current version of the LCRC. On the other hand I am sure the cabal in charge loves the image you defend so vehemently. You’re a good mouthpiece for them. They tend to not like members who either think differently then them or that won’t fall in line. You’re real good at falling in line.

    That’s just my opinion. Silly me.

  • The Bulletproof Monk says:

    “The image is what it is”. The image is what shitheads like you PROJECT it to be. THAT is the problem, not the LCRC.
    You do not attend meetings, you do not know the individuals involved, and you have tunnel-vision regarding the loyalties of those involved.
    I see it completely different, because I ACTUALLY have occasion to speak with the players….and where their priorities lie. If you want to think that Eugene and Black actually run the LCRC, have at it. They don’t— and cannot. There are quite a few people in the way for that to occur….and more memberships coming to the good side in this new year. I, for one, have been busy recruiting instead of yapping my jaw and doing NOTHING.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    A committed Leftist’s opinion of the LCRC means absolutely nothing to me, or quite frankly – anyone with a brain. Your opinion of me is insignificant. Whoever you are listening to has an equally poor grasp of the LCRC – I suggest you get some new friends.

    And please, just stick to what you are good at – bashing social conservatives and women. Your poor imitation of Johnny Carson’s Carnac the Magnificent is being filed and under “So 1970′s”.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    “They tend to not like members who either think differently then them or that won’t fall in line. You’re real good at falling in line.”

    Missed this little gem. You are such a Rebel, BO. A Rebel without a clue.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    LL, I know BO pretty well, and although he and I have had our differences, I can assure you that he is FAR from being a “committed leftist”. He is very much a centrist, and this is the big problem the LCRC as constitued now has – everyone in the center is an evil leftist. Believe me, I know a leftist when I see/hear one and Loudoun County has plenty of those. BlackOut is not one of them.

  • BlackOut says:

    “Shitheads”. Humm, that’s a new low.

    There is plenty of insight into the LCRC provided everyday here on TC. LL, Stoner, BPM, that Gallow guy, and many more provide great insight into the thoughts of those currently in charge at the LCRC. It doesn’t take much to get a rise out of them, which always provides insightful comment.

    Add to that the public characters and we get a pretty clear picture from outside the protective walls of the puritanical forces which are attempting to control what the common folk think of them. If that don’t work then hell just call them shitheads. I am very confident the current image of the LCRC is what I think it is. Too bad there are some good folks buried in the corners and not leading the show.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    G is right about the money issue. In many cases, talented people just don’t have budget or the stomach to through their hat into the sausage grinder.

    Too bad.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    throw

  • BlackOut says:

    That’s right ed. In fact, that’s a big reason why we always end up with these ridiculous Colonels wanting to have a go at the power play.

  • The Bulletproof Monk says:

    See — still no clue. Still a shithead. Who must skip over NJSM’s nauseating posts on his way to condemn mine as the “new” low.
    Ya….it’s that apparent. get over yourself. You have ZERO clue, and you begin to make shit up when that happens.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    BPM, you fail to grasp the real problem – you and other LCRC members can think what you want from the inside, it’s what the general electorate thinks from the outside that matters most. Sure, most voters aren’t paying attention yet, but many are, and the percentage of those paying attention will increase each month as we approach November. The two most high profile ambassadors are Eugene Delgaudio and Dick Black, and those two will make sure that they get the most press attention as things heat up. Mark Sell is invisible in the press and needs to check with Suzanne Volpe before he does anything. The PR operation of the LCRC is a disaster. It does not bode well.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    LI, You and BO have a lot in common, so I would expect you to stick up for him. You both hate Dick Black and KC and get yer jollies screaming about the LCRC – it’s a good time for both of you. I also suspect BO get 99% of his information from you, which is questionable at best. You and BO reading and/or representing the “general electorate” of Loudoun County is, to put it mildy, a crock. Your opinions are just that – not any real evidence of how the political winds blow or what “the people” are thinking.

    What you are is a pot-stirrer and BO is your sidekick. A real Batman and Robin team. Zippity do-dah.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    “It doesn’t take much to get a rise out of them, which always provides insightful comment.”

    Get a rise out of? The most irritating thing about this blog is your commentary on the LCRC, no facts, insight, references, people to quote, relevevant points – nothing but rhetoric. How many times can you quote Batman with the “purity tests” blah, blah, blah. For the love of Pete, if you do continue – please start being creative.

  • BlackOut says:

    Sweetcakes, I am disappointed. I thought everything I say irritates you. I’ll try harder.

    Monk, all I gotts to say about dat is see your ridiculous comments on the USS Iowa and the stuff you made up about that tragic event. Please enlighten me on things you think I made up. Then again I think you made that statement up for convenience. No wonder you and LL hate the great tune Imagine. It reminds you to much of yourselves.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    BO, You don’t irritate me, you are irritating.

    No go listen to “Imagine” on your ipod and dream your little dreamy dreams of a world with no religion or country. Soon you will be tired and falling into your Marxist utopia. Ahh, sweet bliss.

  • G. Stone says:

    “In many cases, talented people just don’t have budget or the stomach to through their hat into the sausage grinder.”

    Correct. It is one thing to get a public ass whooping, it is another to take an economic hit, thus paying for the privileged of getting the ass whopping. Most folks just say no way, taking their talents with them leaving the positions to be filled by those with money.

  • BlackOut says:

    Both parties deal with the same dynamic.

  • The Bulletproof Monk says:

    “it’s what the general electorate thinks from the outside that matters most”
    THAT is where we agree, LI. It’s the fictional shit that you and BO keep spewing —and none of it bears the slightest resemblance to what actually occurs on Committee. That’s why it’s so friggin comical…neither of you knows.

    And BO….I know it goes against what you “feel”…but what I’ve stated about the IOWA is 100% true. The final disposition of that case was brought about by a family who did not want their son to be remembered in history as the gay guy who blew up a turret and killed so many of his fellow sailors. I suppose you’re just not privy to anyone else who’s ever white-washed a conclusion. (if so, you’re one of the good little lemmings. You don’t question issues unless you disagree with the result.)

  • BlackOut says:

    BPM you are so thick headed read the report that was blessed by CNO and SECNAV. Even when you are caught with your pants down you can’t admit your mistakes.

    BPM, you are selectively using a fragment of history associated with the USS Iowa tragedy. There is no conclusive evidence that what happened aboard the Iowa was sabotage. There is significant scientific evidence that it could of been an overram. I was lucky enough to have toured the Iowa just before it was decommissioned. Saw the turret, the sealed hatch, and the plaque. The intelligence officier who gave us the tour believed it was an overram. The Navy was quick to judge and blame it on Hartwig. It was not his parents who forced further investigation. It was for the safety of those who followed and used similar weaponry. Other Iowa class warships were still in service, there was serious mechanical issues to consider, including gunpower that was packed during the Korean War and some bags that were from WWII. At the end nothing was conclusively determined.

    But you’re ridiculous claim “This is what you get when you mix militant homosexuals into a cohesive unit that depends on each other for their very safety” is absurd.

    “A later, civilian investigation overturned the Navy’s vengeful-lover theory and determined that the explosion could have been caused by a combination of inexperience on the gun crew and problems and experimentation with the powder.

    The explosion started in the center gun of Turret 2, which had been pressed into service abruptly because there had been a misfire on the other bow turret.

    A heavy round was rammed into the barrel of the Turret 2 gun, followed by five large bags of propellant. The sailor who was operating the mechanical ramming system had never done it before. Investigators found he may have worked the system too quickly, overramming the powder bags. That could have set them off while the breech was still open, they said, especially if the bags had been altered in an experiment to get better performance.

    The resulting flashback killed those around the gun immediately and swept several stories down into the turret, killing all inside.”

  • G. Stone says:

    “Both parties deal with the same dynamic.”

    Thank you for pointing out the obvious.

  • The Bulletproof Monk says:

    Thank you for pointing out siad white-washing. Good lemming. Go get a cookie. You’ve proved nothing.

  • Blackout says:

    You can think that Monk, but the CNO and SECNAV proved it.

  • I was reminded of this post as I reviewed the LTM. In it, there are NUMEROUS campaigns listed as asking for last minute financing. Among them–Herring and Greason. Nothing on THEM here, now is there?
    That’s what I thought. The one-sided hypocrisy continues, I suppose.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    No one-sided hypocrisy, none of the other last minute appeals I received came off sounded as hysterical as Phillips. This was one of the most ridiculous fund raising appeals I’ve seen, excepting most Delgaudio fundraisers, which this was apparently modeled after.
