I am remiss about not writing on it until now: it took The Other McCain to remind me.
Joel’s donations page is here; but I need to point out something that many of you may not want to hear. To wit: there are 430 House races where there is a GOP candidate (which was incredibly good work by the NRCC). Of them, over half are challengers. Of those, the vast majority are fighting uphill battles and are in desperate need of cash. If the “I only give directly to the candidates” strategy we hear so much of actually worked, Joel Demos would have all the money that he needed to give Keith Ellison (who gives away all his campaign money to other candidates) screaming fits. But Joel doesn’t, because it doesn’t work: the money clumps, because people are not equally aware of the merits of every good candidate out there, and there is currently no good mechanism to make people equally aware.
Let me put it another way: if you are counting on me (to personalize this) to tell you who deserves your campaign contributions, stop doing that. I’m a stay-at-home dad who is lucky if I can keep track of thirty House races. We already have organizations that think on a national scale. Join them, and take them over.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES ‘Chris Christie is loser’ was my alternate title. Not a quote, but it is the basic message from Rush Limbaugh on his show today: Obama does know what he is doing. After a weekend of petty Republican back-stabbing, it’s about time someone showed the sense and backbone to say it. It’s a four minute clip so far too much | Read More »
