Oh my God! Itís true what they say!

Not sure whether the misspelling of "Halliburton" was intentional or not, but thought I'd point it out anyway.

Actually, if you perform a search for "Halliburton" contributions, the results are even MORE jaw-dropping.

I did a search attempting to find out who Tim Blair's American relatives were contributing to. I found one winner, a Kucinich supporter, second from the bottom.

Tim's cousin Cinnie in California

$97 to Kucinich. Not $100, not even $90 or $95, but $97. I don't even want to know the thought process that went into deciding that exactly $97 was their appropriate contribution. (Not that "thought process" and "Kucinich supporter" have anything more than a nodding acquaintance.)

Posted by: David Crawford at March 21, 2004 at 04:35 AM is better. The soft money donations of the company Halliburton were $194,700 in 2000. Sounds like a lot until you compare and contrast with the top soft money contributors of 2000. Several hundred companies contributed more, including such huge evil corporateconglomerations as:

Ocean Spray Cranberries
Waffle House
Outback Steakhouse
Seminole Tribe of Florida
National Association of Letter Carriers
International Dairy Foods Association
and Pitchfork Development (don't know if they actually develop pitchforks).

So make your own "No Blood For Waffles/Cranberries/Pitchforks/Seminoles/AFLAC!" slogans as you so choose.

(From a quick glance it looks like Democrats got most of the really big soft money donations.)

Funny, I've sent money to the Bush-Cheney campaign and my name doesn't come up at all. Should I worry, or just be relieved? Probably the latter, considering how many of my neighbors (judging by zip code) contributed to Howard Dean and Wesley Clark...

Search for Michael Moore. Didn't know so many Michael Moore's donated to Bush...Could one of 'em really me Moore? Trying to keep his "main attraction" in the presidential seat? I wouldn't be surprised.

There's a lone Bush hold-out in the Peoples Republic of Tacoma Park.

Ack, messed that up. Here is the link again.

Nope, Vexorg, it still doesn't work. Read the instructions in red and try to see where you made a mistake. I'm through going in and making corrections.

GWB rocks......Sammy Hagar. Kick-A, as we used to say back in the day.

If you notice, Janeane Garofalo violated campaign finance laws by donating $2050 to Howard Dean. That's $50 over the limit.

Posted by: Mark at March 23, 2004 at 03:28 PM

oooh, yeah, i'm sure the feds will jump all over that!

after all, corporate bundling doesn't violate the whole spirit of the $2000 law at all, does it...?
