Wilson raised $2.7M, Miller $1.7M

The real concern, IMHO, is that Wilson raised >$2M from small dollar donors.

    Are you going to stand for THAT! The guy who yells "YOU LIE", while lying about it! is beating Rob Miller? Not on our watch, he ain't!

    If you can Donate To Rob Miller for Congress (SC-02) today at Act Blue, please do.

    If not, no worries, I know times are hard. At least, please Recommend this diary so others can use the links throughout the day, because today is officially Fundraiser Saturday, and I am open to suggestions on how to make a winning strategy for the 2010 Elections.

    A hat tip to Christian Dem in NC, who brought this to my attention last night.

    For someone who is supposedly sorry about yelling "You lie!" at the president, Joe Wilson certainly cashed in on it.

    On Sept. 14, Wilson's campaign doled out $52,250 to the Virginia-based digital communications firm Active Engagement for web design and online advertising. On Sept. 16, the campaign paid $42,400 to retain the David All Group — a Washington-based Republican new media firm — to help boost Wilson's profile on Twitter and other social networking sites.


    All told, the Wilson campaign spent roughly $235,000 on services related to fundraising and communications strategy.

     I read Sun-Tzu's "The Art of War" recently, and one of the best things I gained from it was this quote.

    When he prepares everywhere he will be weak everywhere

    I interpret this as part of Dr. Howard Dean's 50 State strategy, and suggest we attack different districts in different states at random, not haphazardly, but where it is least expected. This will be the focus of some of my upcoming fundraising diaries.

    But, for now, I say we send a BIG answer back to Joe Wilson. I will answer his "YOU LIE!" with an equal I WILL MAKE YOU FAIL, and by doing that, I say we up the ante.

    And, just to show you what we could be getting for our effort in South Carolina's 2nd District, watch this video of Rob Miller, and I think you will agree that he is light years better than Ugly Kid Joe Wilson, and South Carolina deserves better. In fact, so does America.

    A class act all the way.

    If you can help, I say thanks. If not, thank you anyway, and please Rec this up, so others can chip in and help hit the GOP "Lie Factory" where it hurts. If we can bring down their Bachmann's and Wilson's, if we can shoot down their rising stars we can DEMORALIZE THEM, and that is how we will win the long war of ideas.

    Because all the Right's ideas = FAIL, and America deserves better.

Thank you,

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
