The Cheddarbomb continues on ActBlue for Progressive Hall-of-Famer Russ Feingold.

If you are truly a Progressive and don't just play one on DKos, and if Russ loses to his worthless Republican opponent by a few votes (and it probably will be close), and you passed on the opportunity to throw a few bucks in Russ's direction, you will never forgive yourself!

The Cheddarbomb page on ActBlue is right here.

Remember the Patriot Act? Remember the only "No" vote in the U.S. Senate?

That was Russ.

He's never taken a dime from special interests. He's not a wholly-owned subsidiary of any corporation. He's a straight-talker. He belongs to the same health club as me, and I would probably see him there often if I ever got off my ass and worked out.

This IS the better Democrat that most of Progressive America wishes was their Senator.

Especially fellow cheeseheads: It's crunch time. Put on a clean bowling shirt and go talk to your neighbor about Russ. Buy the shitty beer this week and toss the savings in Russ's hat.

Do it! Now!

Bonus offer!!! If Cheddarbomb reaches $10,000 by 1 p.m. Central Daylight Time, I'll add the story of my recent Russ sighting to this diary.

UPDATE: Please give some love to uppitywis of the Cheddarsphere, whose diary inspired this one. From the comment section by uppitywis...

All of us in the Wisconsin Cheddarsphere want to thank you for your donations to the Cheddarsphere page for the Cheddarbomb

You've forced us to raise our goal -- go ahead, force us to raise it again.  Money is coming in from all over the country.  We're all Wisconsin bloggers who really need to see Russ back in office.  Don't let (as Sarah Silverman said) some rich Republican-y kind of guy beat him.  We're over $4000 and 100 donations at the moment  - but I know we can all do better.

and...

Raised our goal again!!!! We're now looking for 150 contributions --- YOU CAN DO IT!

Please note that I, Giles Goat Boy, am not affiliated with the Feingold (or any other) campaign and I'm not part of Cheddarsphere. Don't know if anybody would want to know that, but just want to be clear.

If you want an example of how truly awful Russ's opponent is, check this out.

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.
