Obama Campaign Fears the Coming Storm (Oh, and It's Worried About Hurricane Sandy, Too)

    In the last twenty-hour hours, I've received four emails from the Obama campaign.  The subject lines read like dispatches from the Weather Channel.  Here they are, in order, with excerpts from the emails:

Some Bad News - From Jim Messina, Campaign Manager
I'm asking you to dig deep, Jerry:
We just found out that Mitt Romney and the Republicans outraised us in the first half of this month, putting us $45 million behind during these crucial final days.
This is Bad - Julianna Smoot, Deputy Campaign Manager
We just found out how much more money Mitt Romney and the Republicans have in the bank: $45 million... A $45 million disadvantage means we could have to fight back against an estimated 780 30-second ads in a battleground state like Colorado. With only 11 days left, that's a devastating prospect.
This is Dangerous - Joe Biden
Look -- Barack and I need you.
We recently found out that, as we head into the final push, Mitt Romney and the Republicans have $45 million more in the bank than we do.
We Risk Losing Everything - Ann Marie Habershaw, Chief Operating Officer
We're being seriously outraised, Jerry...
We need to fight this now, Jerry -- and, for that to happen, I need you to do your part, or we risk losing everything we've built and invested in[.]
    Any minute now I expect to find an email in my inbox with the subject: We're All Gonna Die!  RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!  -bo

    Maybe they read "One in Fourteen."
