The campaign to
re-elect W has me on their mailing list and they seem to think I have money. I’m a registered Independent but the propaganda arriving in the mailbox is addressed to a "fellow Republican" with my name. Yesterday’s contribution to the weirdness was an "invitation" to The President’s Dinner to be held next week in the extremely intimate setting of the Washington Convention Center. The privilege of attending will only cost me $2500, despite the fact that the letter says that I am someone to whom "Laura and I owe a deep debt of gratitude".
I’m going to collect all this crap just to see how big the pile gets. The pile of paper that is. The other kind of pile is already overflowing.
