Eye-catching stuff from Al Franken:
“Hello, I’m Woman Picking Out Fruit In Supermarket. And I’m writing to you today on behalf of Al Franken — a Senator who stands up for real people (including those of us who make a living posing for stock photos).
You’ve seen us shaking hands in business suits, posing together on college campuses, and laughing while we eat salads. You’ve seen us on billboards, in magazines, and on pretty much every political website. We are the people in stock photos.
I know the people in stock photos don’t typically write emails, but Al isn’t your typical politician — he’s a progressive fighter who puts people first. Will you stand with us by making a small contribution to his grassroots campaign right now?
There’s a reason I’m standing with Al. You see, I’m not just Woman Picking Out Fruit In Supermarket. I am also an actual woman worried about the right-wing attacks on my access to health care.”— 4/6/12 Al Franken email message
