The Purple Pinup Guru Platform

When purple things are pulsating on your mind, I'm the one whose clock you want to clean. Aiding is Sparky, the Astral Plane Zen Pup Dog from his mountain stronghold on the Northernmost Island of the Happy Ninja Island chain, this blog will also act as a journal to my wacky antics at an entertainment company and the progress of my self published comic book, The Deposit Man which only appears when I damn well feel like it. Real Soon Now.

Watch this space as your pal Sparky channels the real President —

Sparky, In less than 100 days, history will be made.

Al Gore Waving from podium

Less Than 100 Days to Go!

In less than 100 days, we can put an end to the Republican one-party rule and bring America a new direction.


The 2006 mid-term elections will be upon us and their outcome will determine the future of the Bush presidency and, in many ways, the future of our country.

There is no path to victory in 2008 elections if we do not have success in 2006 - it is just that simple.

President Bush, Dick Cheney and Karl Rove will either use their last two years to fulfill their wildest right-wing dreams, hoping to cement a "permanent Republican majority" as they put it, or face accountability and a progressive agenda in Congress for the first time.

And, that is why I am writing you. You have been instrumental in the DCCC's successes this year. Today, I ask that you take one more step and join me and my friends at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in our historic campaign to win back the U.S. House by giving the most generous gift you possibly can to the DCCC today.

Less than 100 Days: Click here to Donate to the DCCC Today.

The work that the DCCC has been doing has already been paying off. Every week, more Republicans slide from the "safe" column into the "endangered" column as Democratic challengers grow, reach out and inspire voters, and fight for our core values.

Thanks to unprecedented grassroots support from people like you in the DCCC community, Democratic fundraising can compete with the Republican special interest war chest for the first time in memory.

The Republicans will stop at nothing to keep their grip on power, and we will need to go blow for blow with them every single day everywhere in the country if we are going to win and set our country in a new direction.

The DCCC is the only organization that is monitoring every House race, working with our campaigns to hone their message, and knock down Republican attacks -- helping them get their field plans off the ground, and exposing the Republicans for every misstep and betrayal of trust. They are fighting for all of us, and they are winning for all of us - but they need our help to make sure they have the resources for the final days.

And I know from experience that the DCCC is the organization that is critical to ensure that victory in November.

The past weeks have shown us what's at stake. More Democrats in Congress would mean a chance to override President Bush's veto on stem cell research; it means a reasonable minimum wage that will allow people a chance to live on a 40 hour work week; it means oversight and checks and balances on a foreign policy that has spun completely out of control. A Democratic majority would mean lower prescription drug costs and a progressive energy policy that works to dramatically reduce greenhouse gases that cause global warming. And it would mean an economy that works for all Americans, not just President Bush and Dick Cheney's cocktail party pals. We can change all these things if we win in November.

I truly believe that when we look back on 2006 it will be the year that the American people rose up and began the hard fight of taking back their country.

We must have a Democratic victory in November, and it simply won't happen without contributions from people like you. Your past support has helped the DCCC lay the ground work for our success in 2006, and your support in these last days will allow us to fight for every last inch against every last Republican who has rubber stamped the president's policies, covered up his scandals, and put his party before the American people.

Please do your part to bring an end to the Bush era by giving a generous gift to the DCCC today.


Al Gore

P.S. We have an overriding task before us to do everything in our power to ensure that when America wakes up on November 8th, 2006, the Democratic Party is in control of the U.S. House of Representatives. Contribute to the DCCC today and make victory in less than 100 days a reality.

Pardon for the lack of contributions of late. The PP Guru was going to continue with his summer lapse of writer's block and couch clinging adventures in front of the sweltering tube steak in the sky- but he's fucking around too much on to even take notice. Also - he's fucking unemployed ....fucking yet again. When he gets back on his feet- he's going to come back fighting - with a tribute to Moon Knight. The PP Guru is sorry for any inconvience this may cause.
