    What's Wrong With This Picture?

    Just Curious..... why would you give to a campaign that you would not support with your vote.

    • Here's the story, short and sweet:

      My ID is cr1melord4president...I voted for myself.

      But my campaign contributed to John Edwards until he dropped out, Hilary Clinton until she dropped out and finally President Obama.

      I had never contributed to a Republican in my life (although I have voted for a couple), so when I got a letter from Senator McCain addressed to "my loyal Republican friend", I couldn't stop laughing for 20 minutes. I wonder who ripped him off when they sold him whatever mailing list. So I wrote a note on the contribution card about being left of just about everybody, taped a penny to the card and mailed it off.

      Well the Senator apparently has a sense of humor because he sold my name to Congressman James Sensenbrenner...look him up, he's Dick Cheney's younger better looking brother...who isn't even my congressman. I hope Jim puts his penny to better use than the Senator did!


      BTW: Many PACs, special interest groups and other powerbrokers often contribute to both sides...not in the sense of fair play but to hedge their bets!
