ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Time to Donate to McCain - A Buck A Day

It was 25 years ago that John McCain was released from the Hanoi Hilton POW camp and was returned to the United States. To commemorate that event, the McCain campaign website has a video which is dedicated to the "heroes that have sacrificed so much for our freedom."

I realize that the John McCain and his campaign are honorable people and aren't tacky enough to make such a request, so I'm making it on their behalf. Heck, Mack won't even mention that his son is on active duty in the War On Terror.

But as one of the main conspirators here at Another Rovian Conspiracy, I make the following request for everyone to donate to the McCain Campaign.

Here's my sales pitch:

John McCain spent 5 1/2 years in the Hanoi Hilton. Shortly after being captured, McCain was given the option to leave the POW camp (due to his father's recent ascension within the US military to commander of all US forces in Vietnam). McCain, understanding the propaganda that such a return would generate, refused to be released and instead told the N. Vietnamese that he would only go home after all of the men who had been in captivity before him were released.

McCain was shot down and captured on October 26, 1967.
He was released by the North Vietnamese on March 15, 1973.

John McCain spent 1,967 days as a POW.

John McCain needs our support now more than ever - and we need him to be successful in November.

It's time for conservatives to rally around McCain and donate to his campaign.

It's time for a $1,967 donation to the campaign to commemorate John's service to his country. It's time to donate one dollar for each day John endured the brutality of our communist enemies.

I'd certainly say that such an amount would seem trivial given John's treatment in the Hanoi Hilton, but anything more might eclipse the campaign finance regulations. *ahem*

Can't give that amount? How about the following amounts:

  • $0.50 for each day ($983.50); or
  • $0.25 for each day ($491.75); or
  • $0.10 for each day ($196.70); or
  • $0.05 for each day ($98.35)
What's important is that we rally behind our nominee and kick the pants (or pantsuit) off of our opponent in the Fall. Any amount will help our cause in November.

Totally agree and I'll put in my share too.

We are fighting a huge battle on the money front. The Dems have gone ape wild. I'm impressed.

Let's beat them at their own game with the small donors.
