Sarah Palin: Obama’s Top Fundraiser

Posted by Phoenix Woman on September 6, 2008

Check this out, courtesy of a commenter over at Glenn Greenwald’s shop at Salon:

Democrats reaction to the RNC hate: Outraise money 8:1!

This from the WSJ/Washington Wire:

Sarah Palin’s speech to the convention Wednesday night energized conservatives, allayed concerns of some nervous party insiders – and inspired excited Republicans to donate a cool $1 million to the Republican National Committee’s effort to elect John McCain.

But….

UPDATE: Bloomberg reported that Palin’s speech was even better for Democrats–Barack Obama has raised $8 million since Wednesday’s speech. “Sarah Palin’s attacks have rallied our supporters in ways we never expected,” Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton said. “And we fully expect John McCain’s attacks tonight to help us make our grassroots organization even stronger.”

So perhaps the Democratic reaction is through their wallets. Now lets see what the DNC/Obama does with the money.

Sounds good to me.

    Yeah, maybe Obama will use that money to buy air-time and run clips of him on Fox saying how the surge worked beyond his wildest dreams.

  2. They cropped his quote.

    Oh I see, what he actually said was “OBAMA: Bill, what I said is — I’ve already said it succeed beyond our wildest dreams”. That’s so very not any different.

    Brown Buffalo, let’s say you have a headache. So, you pull out your trusty revolver and you blow your brains out. You have cured your headache beyond your wildest dreams.

    But…

    Obama was clear that the surge had succeeded in suppressing violence, but it had failed in its objective of creating space for political reconciliation. And the talking heads who who use it to claim that Obama has admitted he was wrong are liars.

    It does serve him right for appearing on FOX.

    I guess I was right. It lead to an Obama victory. Go figure.
