A Word On Money

One neat thing about this election cycle is that Bush-hatred has inspired a lot of the young people to throw little parties and other social events where they ask everyone to bring a $25 (or whatever) check for the Kerry campaign. Just got another evite right now. Word to the wise, though, is that donating to the Kerry campaign at this point is a very bad idea. He has a lot of cash on hand, and very little time in which to spend it. He’s not allowed to save pre-convention cash and spend it afterwards. So if you want to raise money for someone, either adopt a Senate candidate (I like Brad Carson) or else figure out how you can funnel money to mysterious 527 outfits. John Kerry doesn’t need your money, it’s just going to go into some campaign staff tequila fund or something.
