Okay, guys, we've been getting a lot of emails about a campaign to "fight back against the McCain Campaign's hateful policies toward women" by donating to Planned Parenthood in Sarah Palin's name. Megan has this to say: "The problem with this idea is that Obama forewent public financing on the basis of relying on donors — big and small — to continue giving him money. If people give the $5 or $10 to PPFA instead and send cards to McCain's office, you're just notifying him how much money Obama is losing. Heck, I wouldn't put it past a Republican operative for starting the chain, especially since it doesn't encourage donations to PPFA's PAC, which can spend the money to run ads about the candidates/reproductive rights, but to the organization itself, which cannot. Please be careful about forwarding this along. If something like this really went viral, it could do a lot of damage." Maybe we should save the donations/cards in case the GOP gets elected? Weigh in in the comments.
