Sometimes you turn on the box and start surfing channels and you come upon a televangelist asking for money. Sometimes he starts talking about souls and how much money he needs to save the next 10 or 100 or however many souls that are up in heaven waiting to pass through the pearly gates.
That's when you start thinking about a little old lady on a fixed income whose watching the same idiot, but she's not thinking he's an idiot. She's 87 years old and she's worried one of the souls waiting by the pearly gates might be hers any day now so she goes and writes the idiot a check.
That torques the hell out of me.
Sarah Palin manipulated her followers in the exact same way. Her donation solicitations hinted that maybe a few more bucks will convince the Savior to run for POTUS; that your donation just might push Sarah over the tipping point!
I wonder if any of Palin's contributors are torqued? Particularly since Bristol Palin said her mother had made her decision back in June, but then she solicited donations and played the will she/won't she game for another three and a half months. I wonder how many of Palin's supporters will run to the checkbook for the 2016 or 2020 race when she starts slowly swiveling her hips.
For the faithful, why wait? It's still not too late to make your donation to SarahPAC!
