Wesley Clark supporters paid their money, and they want their signed photographs:

I donated $250 awhile back when there was a premium offered for that amount of a signed picture of Gen. Clark. I never received the picture. Wondering what others' opinions are as to whether it is in completely bad taste and classless to pursue it, and ask for the picture. I know the campaign staff has other issues they are dealing with, if in fact anyone is still there.

Another Clarkoid also lost out:

Linda, I have the same problem. I gave $500 and haven't received the 100 yr vision thing offered.

One hundred years of vision for only $500? Man, this guy was offering some value deals.

Breaking news! Drudge claims that John Kerry is being investigated for an alleged affair with - of all things - an intern.

Those whacky Dems, won't they ever learn?

I think this story must be bogus becaue who in their right mind would cheat on Teresa Heinz?

She's soooo hot!

I never got my Clark policy position Magic 8-Ball. Or my "Mary, help!" underpants.

Are you being facetious? Theresa Heinz *is* hot.

Oh, and it's funny, this worry over being classless, from someone who has probably told at least 100 people that Bush was AWOL.

Heh, selling a hundred years of vision and getting nothing? Isn't that fraud of some sort?

Expensive wine.

Boy, you begin to wonder what Michael Moore was promised.

Posted by: JorgXMcKie at February 13, 2004 at 01:33 PM

Actually, Jorg, I think the promises went the other way around...
I'll gladly endorse you on Tuesday, for a hamburger today.

It's illegal to give rewards for campaign contributions. I still have a rare FMBM sterling silver pin I got for giving money to McGovern's campaign before the Miami convention in '68.

There're rare for more than one reason, but one reason was that the campaign was informed it was illegal to give premiums to donors.

Perhaps the people wanting the pics didn't submit the proper Requisition forms in? Remember, he was a General....
