49. The campaign that is 30 million in debt and who couldn't
keep up with Obama's fund raising is going to bring funds to his campaign - that's rich.

:rofl:

Sorry, the efforts to glorify the candidate that came in 2nd and the campagin that is in debt are nice but they don't mean squat.

The slow down in fund raising is because he won the primaries - the boring McCain efforts make it seem that the win is such a slam dunk. Right now folks are in that lull before things get going again - no debates, no interest in the competition.
