Day 3 of Matching Contributions: CA-SOS, CA-04, CA-11

Wednesday, I offered a proposal: I will do a dollar for dollar match for every dollar given to Debra Bowen (running for CA Secretary of State), Charlie Brown (running against John 15% Doolittle), and Jerry McNerney (running against Richard "Paid-For" Pombo) using the Calitics ActBlue page through 5.00 pm on Saturday, September 30, up to the following limits:

Debra Bowen:  $1,000
Charlie Brown:  $500
Jerry McNerney: $500

Well, here's what's been raised through 7:00 this morning:

Debra Bowen:  $665.01
Charlie Brown:  $460.01
Jerry McNerney:  $330.01

Charlie Brown is very close to meeting the goal. Come on, McNerney & Bowen Fans! You're not gonna let the Charlie Brown people do that to you, are you?

I matched yesterday's contributions over coffee this morning. Make me give away the rest tomorrow morning.

Once again, don't forget to tip ActBlue. 

Day 2 of Matching Contributions: CA-SOS, CA-04, CA-11

Yesterday, I offered a proposal: I will do a dollar for dollar match for every dollar given to Debra Bowen (running for CA Secretary of State), Charlie Brown (running against John 15% Doolittle), and Jerry McNerney (running against Richard "Paid-For" Pombo) using the Calitics ActBlue page through 5.00 pm on Saturday, September 30, up to the following limits:

Well, here's what's been raised through 10.00 today:

Debra Bowen:  $575.01
Charlie Brown:  $210.01
Jerry McNerney: $140.01

And because it's so doggone easy to give through ActBlue, I've already made my matching contributions. It took me three whole minutes this morning.Make me give away some more money tomorrow morning.

And again, don't forget to tip ActBlue.  More tips means less time they have to spend raising money, more time they can spend improving the service and helping turn our country a pretty blue.

OK, I've been really busy for the last month or so, which means that the time I can give to Calitics and campaigns is way down.  On the flip side, the amount of money I can give has gone up a bit.

So, readers, here's my proposal.  I will do a dollar for dollar match for every dollar given to Debra Bowen (CA-SOS), Charlie Brown (CA-04, running against John 15% Doolittle), and Jerry McNerney (CA-11, running aginst Richard "Paid-For" Pombo) through the Calitics ActBlue page between now and 5pm on Saturday, September 30, up to the following limits:

Debra Bowen:  $1,000
Charlie Brown:  $500
Jerry McNerney: $500

And while you're there, don't forget to throw ActBlue a tip.  I work with them (as a volunteer), and they provide a great service FOR FREE, so say thanks with a bit o' cash.

The Shape of the Schwarzenegger Campaign

Arnold Schwarzenegger is newly humble and bipartisan, so he says, after he took a beating for his hard-right politics and crass attempt at a power grab in last year's special election.

Nobody with a pulse should believe that.

Schwarzenegger 2006 is shaping up to look like Bush 2000, complete with compassionate conservative rhetoric from the top of ticket for the general population, hardcore Republican fire-breathing from the #2 slot, and carefully targeted negative attacks on his opposition based on voter's "anger points". Don't take my word for it. Schwarzenegger's campaign preparation says so.
