For smart people who enjoy being righteously petty

I am passing this bit of brilliance on from powpow, via Facebook (and with an especial nod to my mother, who will be cleaning out her bank account forthwith):

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:
http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

(When you go to the Planned Parenthood site -click on "DONATE" and then choose "Honorary or Memorial Donations")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

At the end of the day, you were going to give Planned Parenthood money anyway, so a nice middle finger to the Republican party is just pink confetti icing on the yummy cake of reproductive rights. Mmmm, freedom.

HAHAHAAA!!! This is brilliant. I may have to find $5 somewhere and do it, because I hate the woman with every fiber of my being.
