Sarah who? DCCC picks Bachmann as new fundraising bogey-woman 

In case you're wondering how Democrats are raising money in the final days of Q2 (which ends Thursday), here's a sample:

Can you believe this? House Republican, Tea Party Caucus Chairwoman, and extremist Michele Bachmann has now officially announced her campaign for President.

Not only does she think she can win, but many pundits think she's a contender. Even the latest polls show she's in a good position.

So why does this matter? Michele Bachmann is the EXACT kind of extremist we're fighting to keep OUT of Congress. We have just 72 hours left to put together the strongest possible mid-year fundraising totals and put Tea Party Republicans on notice that that we're going to defeat them in 2012.

Contribute $3 or more before the mid-year FEC deadline so we have the resources necessary to keep Republicans like Michele Bachmann out of Congress.

Palin and Bachmann both have their flaws. But this fundraising pitch from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee says less about either of them than it does about the fact that conservative women are probably the most annoying thing you can throw at the left-wing grassroots. Put one of them out there, and wallets begin to open.
