UPDATE: Pizza for Progressives - We're Embarrassing Ourselves

UPDATE: Larry seems to be up around 157 donors now, which ties him with Courage and keeps him ahead of Seals, and I believe moves him ahead of Linda Stender. At the netroots page they are currently listing the candidates based on the NUMBER of donations, not the amount. Here we made a big deal of getting Larry on the list and now he is nearly in last place. Only Dan Seals from IL is doing more poorly. Is that the way we represent in North Carolina? The guy WE think should be on the netroots page ends up in last? I don't think so. Look, I'm as tapped as anyone right now, but I'll repeat what Chris Bowers says over at MyDD:

Whatever you can give, even if it is just $5, makes a big difference.

So, that's what I'm going to do. It's time for another edition of Pizza for Progressive, Time to Raise the Dough. I'm giving up all coffee purchases and making a donation instead. How about you?

If I Give Up Coffee, I Run The Risk of Becoming a Republican

Who knows what evil could happen, really. But I'll make a donation. I'm headed out the door now for a trip to NC to get the last of my stuff, but I'm sure that there will be lots of action on this thread (in the form of "I donated!" comments) to remind me to give tomorrow evening when I get home, right?

I donated.

Do it now.

Idea for action

Hit the "email this page" link below Robert's post and email the entry to five of your friends. Ask them to donate whatever they can to Larry today.

It takes every bit of two minutes.

i'm pretty much broke

looks like i picked the wrong week to have the exhaust manifold on my car replaced...

put a tuition payment and books on top of that, and i'm going to be living in ramenland for the next few weeks...

Ramenland....

and hotdogs. Haven't been there in a while, but I do remember what it was like. We're getting ready to put two in braces. Ouch.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Act Blue

Is now one of the largest contributors to campaigns in the country, because of us. Give them a 5% tip and help keep it running.

Donated

Don't tell my wife. We are supposed to be on a spending freeze. But I figure that I will be working by the time I actually pay the bill.

Done and done...

Amen, Robert P. Keep it quiet!

I've already given

at two fundraisers. Does that count? I have that other guy I have to give really big to, so I'm poor. If I still need to give a little bit, let me know. I'm a sucker for Larry.

I know how you feel.

I attended the $50 fundraiser at you-know-who's house, added another donation later, have given Heath a couple, and now this. That in addition to some Tester donations dating back to my Democratic Bake Sales. Oh, and I gave the DNC a few bucks.

Please, don't tell my wife.

Guilt me into it but you are right

Larry Kissell (NC-08) $10.00
ActBlue $0.50
Total $10.50

Its times like these, when down the most in life (trust me I am too) that our wills to fight back are tested.

I for one will not let us go like that. Thanks Robert for bringing this to our attention. We have to keep up the pressure.

Our children need to know that some people fought back, when others collaborated.

You guys are awesome.

It all adds up . . . and it makes a huge difference in campaign morale. Thank you thank you thank you.

OKAY! OKAY!

I did it again. Larry $25, ActBlue $2.50.

Lovex7

You rock.

Remember, in this case, we want to spread Larry's name through NUMBER Of donations. So, if anyone out there can only spare $5, go for it!
