I just donated to McCain/Palin for a second time

September 13th, 2008

And I’m going to keep donating every time the mainstream media’s treatment of the Republican ticket pisses me off.

My guess is I’m going to hit the Federal campaign donation limit pretty damn fast.

    Dude… you’ll be broke. Think about your kid’s college fund.

    Congrats!

    My first campaign donation ever was to McCain. On the day the NY times did the adultary smear story so quite a while ago.

    At the time, I thought he was doomed against Obama. My donatation was to show McCain that no matter what, some stood with him.

    Now post-Palin I am motivated. Heh.

    Donating even a small sum allows me to do some (however small) real action to continue to help McCain and Palin. So yeah, it is great to have that right.

    ‘It’ being free speech that is. Donate away!

    heh…remember the days when you were on the fence?
    seems like a long time ago now, doesn’t it?

    Contribute to me and I’ll consider voting for McCain. :)

    Actually, Unreal, I’m still not sure Obama would be so bad for the country.

    It’s the media that I’m at war with at this point.

    Wait. How are you contributing to McCain-Palin? The campaign is taking federal funds, not private contributions.

    Ohmigod, I gave it away! You caught us, Jay!

    ;)

    I think the money actually goes to the “compliance” fund, which means I’m paying for accountants or some such.

    All part of the fun and circuses brought to us by campaign finance “reform.”
