2. Yes, very lol-able. Here are the subject lines:

 

Onslaught
I'm afraid we're short
A serious threat to our campaign
US against everyone
500,000 donations by Saturday's deadline

And there are still 12 hours left in the day!

7. Lost control

 

When the crowd was booing him, and replied with “really?!”. When asked about his healthcare plan on how to pay, he responded, “platitude, platitude, platitude, payroll tax...” Still couldn’t answer the question when asked directly and the moderators did a disservice to those watching by not holding his feet to the fire. Biden looked overall presidential, I thought.

15. Yes, it looked like his blood pressure spiked

 

Bernie probably isn't used to being boo'd, nice reality check for him. Not everyone is like his adoring fans at his rallies. Meanwhile, I sincerely worry about his health, as this much pressure cannot be good for a 78 year old man who just had a heart attack. If he was my husband or a close relative, I'd be pushing for him to quit before he does irreparable damage to his health.

8. Got my first one as debate was ending

 

I average getting 5-10 emails a day from Bernie and a fair number from other candidates, mostly state and local. All the ones from Bernie ask for money. As the debate was ending, I received this email:




US against everyone

It’s us against the entire damn political establishment, UNC70

Tonight it was the candidates taking aim at Bernie on the debate stage. Tomorrow it will be their super PACs and their personal billions taking aim at us in television ads.

12. That's the one I got at 6:03 AM this morning. I usually get 2-3 from him daily, 1-2 from Biden...

 

...and Klobuchar, and was getting 1-2 from Booker before he dropped out. I get several from local candidates, too.

Never got five before, I suspect that's going to become the norm.

16. Rarely get email from Biden

 

Just went back and looked more closely at emails. Have gotten a recent flurry from Bernie. Sustained rate previously was only 1-3 a day, some days none. The tone of these emails have become much more "fearful" -- he/we are under attack and need your money.

22. I was surprised to hear Bernie had less than $10 million cash on hand

 

It’s more than the others except for Bloomberg and Steyer but for all the chest pounding about fundraising and mockery of other candidates’ fundraising by some Sanders supporters you’d figure it would be a lot more.

This was an e-mail sent to rank and file supporters. He's against wealthy people and corporations having disproportionate access to him at closed door high-dollar fundraisers. I'm pretty sure he doesn't do those kind of fundraisers at all, or if so rarely.

25. No one can give a candidate more than $2800 or $5600 (couple). He has a "rank and file"....

 

....supporter who gave more than 800 "small" contributions early last year, most were $3.00.

Her aggregate? $2821!

She actually gave seven more $3.00 contributions than permissible. And the Sanders campaign accepted the excess (and got dinged by the FEC for that!)

29. For every $2.70 contribution to Sanders online the credit card company gets a big piece....

 

There is about a 4% fee plus $0.25-$0.30 per transaction. That's about $0.40, or 15% of the contribution. And then there's finance charges to the user if the bill isn't paid within 30 days.
