The liberal website Daily Kos is launching a new campaign to bring the Tea Party a "comeuppance" by "brutally" telling them the truth. In a new mass email from the site, they bluntly state that "it's payback time" and plead with their members to donate five dollars to them and an "activist" group called CREDO. All of this is in order to attack Tea Partiers and the "Tea Party Ten," ten Republican representatives in Congress.
Ironically, of course, Republicans won over 60 new seats in 2010, but the Daily Kos is pleased with a measly ten. In other words, while the GOP and Tea Party were able to take back the House in a tidal wave of support, liberals are so weak that their goal is ten whole seats come 2012.
They also are hiring minions to help accomplish their goals and their "strategy" is to yell at people in meetings. In other words, what the Tea Party did respectfully and through grassroots organizing, the Left has to hire rich people to coordinate.
And, accompanying the desperate plea for support, in the email is this picture:
Here is the entire email:

Subject: Comeuppance is coming
Date: Wednesday, December 28, 2011, 12:58 PM
XXXXXXXX, you know the tea party Congress is in trouble when even the Wall Street Journal is blasting them
Republicans are in disarray, and some long overdue comeuppance is coming.
To make it happen, CREDO is mobilizing thousands of people through phone banking, neighbor-to-neighbor discussions, town hall protests and brutally honest truth-telling in ten House districts held by tea party extremists.
Please, chip in $5 to CREDO to help build this campaign. It's payback time.
Campaign Director, Daily Kos
We're going to give ten of the worst Tea Party-affiliated members of congress exactly what they deserve - unemployment. Make a donation now to help Take Down the Tea Party Ten.
Finally. It's time to hold Tea Party extremists accountable.
Dear Fellow Progressive,
If you're like us, you've watched in horror over the last year, as the most extreme congress in history made one nauseating vote after another.
Now it's payback time.
Many of the Tea Party-affiliated House Republicans were elected in 2010 with the help of millions of dollars in spending by political groups associated with Karl Rove and the Koch brothers.
So the most odious members of the congress have behaved as if they were above accountability.
But they aren't. And we're going to take them down.
So CREDO is launching a new campaign: To defeat ten of the most extreme Tea Party-affiliated members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012. We aim to win - and we need your help to do it.
Can you chip in $5 to Take Down the Tea Party Ten?
This is the biggest campaign CREDO has ever undertaken, and it couldn't come at a more important time.
The CREDO SuperPAC will run a grassroots campaign in ten districts. We will mobilize our members to inform voters of the Tea Party incumbent's perfidy, to peacefully confront and question them at public gatherings, and to turn out thousands of volunteers for door-to-door canvassing and member-to-member phone calls.
The emphasis will be on making a significant, cost-effective impact, using brutally honest messages, cutting edge strategies, and some tactics that have never been tried before.
Our goal is to restore at least a measure of sanity to our national politics, and begin to change Washington.
Your involvement is crucial in this campaign - and every one of CREDO Action's nearly 2.5 million activists, along with progressives across the country, have a role to play to help defeat these extremist legislators.
Now, we need to get this campaign moving.
Donate $5 to help fund a hard-nosed campaign to hold ten of the most extreme Tea Party-affiliated representatives accountable:
Thanks for your activism. Together, we're about to do something really big.
