Fun with fundraising

In case you haven’t noticed, I haven’t done a fund drive in a really long time. That’s because I’ve been able to hang on through what I earn at C&L, subsidized by what was left to me when my mother died.

Now I could really use your help. In addition to paying for the health insurance, I have a $5000 copay on the surgery and about $30,000 in assorted medical bills from when I was hospitalized previously. (See this woman’s story.) I don’t expect to pay all of that, but I will have to pay something.

Obviously, some of you are in the same leaky financial boat and the last thing I want is for my readers to donate to me when they’re in bad shape themselves. But for those of you who can spare a few bucks, and would like to support what I do, I’d really appreciate your help.

In addition to Paypal (see “donate” tab above), you can request my home address or use Wepay.com (widget just below this), which was recommended to me by people who hate Paypal.

Got out of bed this morning without additional pain, which was nice. Maybe I’m getting better!

Pretty easy code to break

Candy Crowley asks Rep. James Clyburn if Newt Gingrich’s reference to Barack Obama as the “food stamps president” was a racial comment. Where did she get that crazy idea?


The officeholder who shouted obscenities at women hecklers and was caught being shuttled by helicopter to his son’s Little League game had harsh words yesterday for the South Carolina primary winner:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) says that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has “embarrassed” the Republican Party, but former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney never has.

Following Romney’s devastating loss to Gingrich in the South Carolina Republican presidential primary, Christie told NBC’s David Gregory that the former speaker just didn’t have the experience needed to be president.

“I think Newt Gingrich has embarrassed the party over time,” Christie explained. “Whether he’ll do it again in the future, I don’t know. But Gov. Romney never has.”

“We all know the record,” the New Jersey governor continued. “He was run out of the speakership by his own party. He was fined $300,000 for ethic violations. This is a guy who’s had a very difficult political career at times and has been an embarrassment to the party.”

“But do you think a candidate, a nominee Gingrich, could also beat President [Barack] Obama?” Gregory asked.

“Sure,” Christie replied.

Citizens United or democracy?

As Bernie Sanders notes, we can’t have both.

Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson:


I have to say, I’m still not feeling real good. The Percocet is creating problems as expected, but more than that, I’m getting these really bad cramps on my right side. It’s really difficult to get out of bed in the morning because the pain is so bad. The rest of the day isn’t as bad because I can sit in an armchair.

Anybody else go through this?
