Do Hard Labor With Edwards, For A Fee
By Don Frederick and Andrew Malcolm
Presidential campaigns are very creative at linking with voters -- especially when it comes to obtaining their names and e-mails for fund appeals. Remember helping pick Hillary Clinton's official campaign song? Barack Obama's campaign invited selected donors of small amounts to dinner. John McCain sends a copy of his new book in return for a donation.
I know. It must be reflective of my Neo-Conservative status that I don't understand, but how does this huckster offer a chance for Demmie Dupes to enter a sweepstakes to 'win' a chance to work for a fee they're going to pay HIM--and then say "No purchase or contribution necessary to enter."???
Well, all in all, I'd say this magnanimous gesture on his part is par for the course: Charging other people to do 80% of the work, while he takes in 100% of the 'found money'--and grabs 100% of the credit--while doing 20% of the work, and paying for nothing himself... (And there's not any chance that those housing materials are really going to be donated by--or hornswoggled from--someone else, now, is there, John?)
