Grayson raised $70K, GOP raised "a couple hundred dollars"
Edited on Thu Oct-01-09 12:27 PM by LTR
While direct comparisons between Rep. Alan Graysons (D-FL) now-infamous Die Quickly! screed and Joe Wilsons You lie! dont hold much water, the two incidents do share one thing in common. They have both given new meaning to the phrase money quote.

Grayson wasted no time in putting up a fundraising plea at Daily Kos, one that has raised over $70,000 so far. He has also spent the hours since then doubling, tripling, and googlpling down on his remarks to anyone who will have him on. The phone at Graysons office is ringing off the hook, and when I reached them, they declined to give an updated estimate.

(snip)

The Republican National Congressional Campaign Committee is hoping they can surpass the Democrats oppo-fundraising feat, and have set up an anti-Grayson website called AlanDisgrayson.com to raise money for his eventual opponent. A source within the NRCC ballparks the amount raised from the site at a couple hundred dollars, but sats that the site went live late yesterday, and he expects it to get much more promotion today

A couple hundred dollars?!? The GOP's really raking in the loot!

:rofl:

(Edit to change headline, so people will actually read and comment)

6. Kick and a Rec for a Dem with balls.
He might just wake up some of his sheep-like cohorts when they see strong words and a fighting attitude can GET THEM DONATIONS.
