The bat is back!
Many positive things can be said about the Dean team, but one thing they REALLY know how to do is to rally the support of their base in order to make a point about fundraising: that Democrats CAN match Bush dollar for dollar. This weekend they are going to try and prove it:
On Monday, July 28th, Vice President Dick Cheney will raise $250,000 from a handful of special interest contributors at a luncheon in Columbia, South Carolina. Let's show Dick Cheney that the grassroots have the power to take on the special interests that have bought the Bush administration. Let's show George W. Bush and Dick Cheney that we will not let our government be sold to the highest bidder. To take on Dick Cheney and George W. Bush-- to beat back the special interests-- the Dean campaign is "Bringing Out the Bat" this weekend. Our goal is to raise $250,000 in online contributions by midnight, Monday, July 28th. You can take part. You can show George W. Bush and Dick Cheney that the grassroots campaign for Howard Dean is going to send them packing.They have provided the HTML necessary to add the bat to other web pages, so I have done so to the left (and yes, I've contributed to it as well).
