So, a bunch of progressive bloggers decided yesterday to hold a fund raiser today with the modest goal of raising $1,000 by Friday evening. Like I said this morning, $1,000 doesn’t seem like a lot, but when you look at the bare-cupboard of the TNDP coffers, it’s quite a bit.
Well, they got their $1,000 after lunch, today.
So, they set a new goal of $2,000 and 50 contributors by Friday evening.
Listen, I said it before and I will say it again. Money talks. If we want Tennessee politicians to listen to us, we have to prove that they have to. This has been an effective lesson. I don’t know what it means (you know, because I don’t know anything about politics), other than that the ground is shifting.
A few folks can decide yesterday to do something and accomplish it today. Ta da.
I don’t know what to make of it, but I’m tickled as shit to see it.
Ha. I don’t know. I wish I were privy to the talk on the Hill today. I wonder what they’re saying about it.
If you can contribute, please do.
