Dear Friend of the President:


The following solicitation from the Republican Committee to Re-elect the President (GOP-CREEP) reached us by mistake.

Dear Friend of the President:

We head toward the November Presidential election in a time of global terrorism, a sputtering economy, everybody getting fat and nobody getting educated. But let’s get serious. Come November, only money can safeguard an unbroken continuation of that vital balance of power between the Executive branch and the Executive branch’s friends.

Invest in your future. Give till your stockholders and employees hurt. Contribute now to the 2004 Republican Presidential re-election campaign!

Think that’s it? You don’t know the Republican Committee to Re-elect the President! Deliver your contribution in CASH (small bills, please!) and you’ll receive a No-Strings Postdated Blanket Presidential Pardon–so you can finally enjoy peace of mind when you violate the law.


Pssst! Be A Phantom Donor!
      Too shy or too culpable for out-in-the-open political giving? A senior Republican Party deniability expert will meet you in your nonreciprocity-treaty nation of exile or anyplace–anytime, anywhere–to receive your donation and guarantee anonymity!
      Extra Bonus! Phantom Donors receive the coveted Kingdom of Saudi-Arabia “Secret Santa” Medal, awarded for exemplary tact in making unrecorded political donations!
      Isn’t the re-election of our President worth money that would otherwise just be gathering dust in some offshore bank account, corporate slush fund or buried strongbox? Let’s review:
      Your gift of more than $1.5 million in cash brings National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice to your door for an inside personal briefing on what she didn’t know about Iraq’s WMDs and when she didn’t know it (if she is able to recall)! For another $l million, “Condi” will smile!


Foil the Democrat terror coddlers and their “fair and square” election tricks. Your contribution to the Republican Committee to Re-elect the President will buy pre-tested voting machines…private detectives…personal political smears that look just like TV spots…an Iraqi government that listens–and much, much more!

Thank you for reading The Nation!

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read. It’s just one of many examples of incisive, deeply-reported journalism we publish—journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media. For nearly 160 years, The Nation has spoken truth to power and shone a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug.

In a critical election year as well as a time of media austerity, independent journalism needs your continued support. The best way to do this is with a recurring donation. This month, we are asking readers like you who value truth and democracy to step up and support The Nation with a monthly contribution. We call these monthly donors Sustainers, a small but mighty group of supporters who ensure our team of writers, editors, and fact-checkers have the resources they need to report on breaking news, investigative feature stories that often take weeks or months to report, and much more.

There’s a lot to talk about in the coming months, from the presidential election and Supreme Court battles to the fight for bodily autonomy. We’ll cover all these issues and more, but this is only made possible with support from sustaining donors. Donate today—any amount you can spare each month is appreciated, even just the price of a cup of coffee.

The Nation does not bow to the interests of a corporate owner or advertisers—we answer only to readers like you who make our work possible. Set up a recurring donation today and ensure we can continue to hold the powerful accountable.

Thank you for your generosity.
