Did Possum Hollar Put Their Beer Money Where Their Mouths Are?

Republicans get to work!

Both Sides!!1! are claiming YUGE fundraising spikes after the Virgin Mayor of Keg City’s confirmation battle.

Axios reports:

The DCCC says it also raised$4.38 million from the end of September to Oct. 5 — the day it was clear Kavanaugh would be confirmed.

Republicans have reported huge fundraising increases too, though they’re not releasing specific dollar amounts. Instead, an aide at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), the group in charge of House races, says it saw a 418% increase in online donations in the first week of October compared to the first week of September.

Anyone else notice that the Dems released actual dollar numbers, while the Fourth Reich are giving us a percentage? Are the denizens of Possum Hollar really putting their beer money where their mouths are? (See what I did there?)

What does it mean, you ask?

It means that both sides (!!1!) are enraged, but why? Opinions Differ!

  • Democrats are enraged at a process where someone who lost the popular vote nominated the Virgin Mayor of Keg City (an alleged serial sexual assaulter) to have a lifetime seat on the SCOTUS, with support from senators representing less than half of the country when the majority of the country opposed him.
  • Republicans are enraged that any man—let alone an elite, white, straight, Xristian man—was accused of anything at all, and that they had to even pretend to listen to the Skirts. It’s as if they put their hands over the women’s mouths and turned up the music.

The next FEC filing deadline is on Oct. 15, so we will find out then if Possum Hollar really was energized by this shit-show, but as we noted the polling shows little change.

Meanwhile, the Villagers will mewl and bleat and tsk-tsk us about the uncivil, deep divide. (The Magic Ouija Board says David Eff’ing* Brooks is already on it.)

*we were reminded on Twitter that we were in violation of our own style guide. We regret the error.

    I think the Treasurer of 100 Kegs or Bust proudly said his crowd are known as “prolific pukers”. Sounds about right.

    After the Terrible 2016 Presidential Election, I tend to distrust polls.

    I believe we have to work harder than ever to make sure as many people as possible vote for Democrats. We need to motivate young people, minorities, women, and on-the-fence people to get themselves to the voting booths. Time’s running out!

      I agree, Donnah. Polls, as they say, are only snapshots in time.

      And anywhere it is possible, we need to get better voting systems. Having voting machines and voter tabulation systems be so easy to hack is just asking for trouble. One way to push it – counter hack. It’s way beyond my skill level, but it does need to happen or we’re screwed.
