October government shutdown fundraiser [sticky; new posts below; THURSDAY UPDATE; FINAL UPDATE]
This one is simple: want to put a halt to ObamaCare? Donate generously to me.
Because while I have no direct influence on how and when the GOP establishment figures out a way to surrender, I can assure you that I will have had nothing to do with it. And in this day and age — when other Republicans are already tripping over themselves to undermine an attempt to weaken or delay or defund an unpopular law — I promise not to be one of them.
Unless I need a government service that happens to be closed, and I find myself inconvenienced. At which point all bets are off.
Pragmatism, you know. I’m sure you understand.
Thursday update: Not sure what to say, really. So far, this has been my worst fundraiser ever. I appreciate all who’ve contributed; but I fear that none of this augurs well for the relative health and reach of my voice.
Oh well. There’s always Twitchy.
Tuesday update: I’ll be pulling this down at the end of the day. Thanks again to all who contributed!
