The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is Chicken Little

I'm not sure how, but at some point I got on the mailing list of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. I recently removed myself from the list, because their messages were getting  tiresome and repetitive. Here is a selection of subject-headers from messages they sent the past 3 weeks (about half of all messages they sent me between Feb. 12 and Mar. 5):

devastating loss
crippling blow
devastating defeat
dead in the water
horrible loss
enormous loss
this could be the end
devastating blow
 devastating loss

In this era of micro-targeting, I am having a hard time understanding what target group they believe would find such a barrage of sameness anything other than annoying. And I'm doubly puzzled as to why they believe I am in that group.
