I have deviously brilliant friends….

September 19, 2008

but if you read here regularly you already know this.

Now, to tell the truth, I read about this idea on I think, Shakesville? or Broadsheet? fairly soon after the Palin annoucement, but I got an email from FranIAm, reminding me that I haven’t followed up on it yet.

Here is the blurb from the email:

“From the Seattle/Tacoma Craigslist:

Dear Friends:

We may have thought we wanted a woman on a national political ticket, but the joke has really been on us, hasn’t it? Are you as sick in your stomach as I am at the thought of Sarah Palin as Vice President of the United States ?

Since Palin gave her speech accepting the Republican nomination for the Vice Presidency, Barack Obama’s campaign has raised over $10 million dollars. Some of you may already be supporting the Obama campaign financially; others of you may still be a little honked off over the primaries. None of you, however, can be happy with Palin’s selection, especially on her positions on women’s issues. So, if you feel you can’t support the Obama campaign financially, may I suggest the following fiendishly brilliant alternative?

Make a donation to Planned Parenthood. In Sarah Palin’s name. And here’s the good part: when you make a donation to PP in her name, they’ll send her a card telling her that the donation has been made in her honor.

Here’s the link to the Planned Parenthood website:

You’ll need to fill in the address to let PP know where to send the “in Sarah Palin’s honor” card. I suggest you use the address for the McCain campaign headquarters, which is:

McCain for President
1235 S. Clark Street
1st Floor
Arlington , VA 22202

Feel free to send this along to all your women friends and urge them to do the same.

Then Doxy suggested an alternate place to donate in Palin’s name:
SIECUS – Sexual Information and Education Council of the United States

I like this. I really do. I think I’ll give a bit to BOTH organizations…skips off happily…
