Bleeding Heartland: Leonard Boswell does not need your money

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

I received a fundraising letter from Congressman Leonard Boswell's
campaign recently. It contained a healthy dose of the misleading spin
I have come to expect from Boswell's mailings this year. I'm not going
to retype the whole text, but this passage made me laugh (emphasis is
in the original): "My republican opponent has had four months to raise
money and plan for the general election; an election that I am only
able to focus my attention on now. While I was competing against an
opponent for the Democratic nomination, the republicans were getting
ready to once again challenge us in this competitive district. This
time they have the advantage of a large head start." Get real. Iowa's
third Congressional district is not on the National Republican
Congressional Committee's list of 2008 targets.
