When did you ever ….

When did you ever get a birthday card for one person from someone else asking for money?  Not too often I hope, but Cindy McCain is sending them out.  I saw this on the Daily Kos.  I know once you open the wrong thing you are going to end up on the wrong end of a begging letter chain.

My question is why such huge amounts?  Is it because they are Republicans and they expect more or they need more?  At least the e-mails I get from the Democrats only ask for $25 or so.  Maybe there is a lesson here, loads of small amounts or a couple of large amounts, which is better?  Whatever, I will not be contributing to either since the one huge problem I have with American politics is the obscene amount of money spent (wasted) on the campaign.  And if you think I am exagerating the Cindy requirements for John’s birthday, here is a direct quote from the letter.

And because it is absolutely crucial that we raise valuable dollars to counter Senator Obama’s massive fundraising machine, I urge you to also include a check or credit card contribution of $500, $750 or perhaps even $100 for John McCain 2008.

I just hope his buddy George gave him a nice present.

John Sidney McCain III (born August 29, 1936)  that’s 72 if your math is bad.

    You must have really had to hunt to locate that image. Great detective work, man! (heh heh)
