Then, this morning, I saw something else that got me more excited. It seems that somebody has started up a campaign to get people to donate to Planned Parenthood in Sarah Palin's name. And if you fill in the correct fields, Sarah gets a card from Planned Parenthood thanking her for the generous donation. This is an idea I can get behind. If you'd like to get involved, click on the above link to be taken to the page where you can donate in her honor. You can donate as little as $5.00 . From what I hear, over 18,000 people have made donations so far.
Some of the sites I've seen recommend having the thank you note sent to McCain-Palin Headquarters:
McCain for President
1235 S. Clark Street
Arlington , VA 22202
Governor Sarah Palin
P.O. Box 110001
Juneau, AK 99811-0001
Update: Just try leaving your office for a little while and watch the shit hit the fan. JTS, in a rather caustic comment, takes me to task with this whole thing. I'm actually going to cede him the point regarding clogging up the Alaska Governor's office with a flood of mail (Yes! My thousands of loyal readers will grind that office to a standstill. :D) I'll also cede the point about the whole thing being childish. For some reason, it still amuses me. So anyway, I encourage you to get onboard, but go ahead and have the thanks sent to the campaign's office.
And Leanright. I don't take issue at all with Palin as Governor of Alaska. I hear good things about her in that capacity and I'm glad her constituents are happy with her performance. I do, on the other hand, take great issue with the idea of her being a heartbeat away from the Presidency. Alaskan Governors don't set foreign policy, don't nominate Supreme Court Judges, and don't have any real pull on setting a national agenda. I'm sure she's as qualified as the next State Executive. I just don't like her stances on a great many issues.
