Mitt Romney's selection of Rep. Paul Ryan hasn't just been a bonanza for Democratic talking heads who've assailed his budget as the death knell for government aid like Medicare. It's also turning into a fundraising boomlet.
And now the two are being combined in a fundraising letter distributed by the imaginative Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the group that funds House races.
They've coined the anti-Ryan campaign phrase on a bumper sticker with just four words: "Save Medicare, Vote Democratic." Some 100,000 are being printed.
It should be an easy sell: The fundraising note has got to be one of the shortest ever, an indication that most Democrats already know about Ryan and his plan to "kiss Medicare goodbye," despite his assurance that it won't be touched for those 55 or older.
Here's the DCCC note:
We're trying to get the word out about Paul Ryan's plan to end Medicare. That's why we're hoping to give out 100,000 "Save Medicare, Vote Democrat" bumper stickers.

Voters need to know that if Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and the Republicans win in November, you can kiss Medicare goodbye.
