McCain better realize that it’s the small donor that has pushed Obama over the top…

I just read a great essay in the HuffPo by journalist and mother Mary Lyon. It is a response to McCain’s bitter complaints about Obama’s Informercial last nite and the funding that provided it.

Here’s a quote:

The piece of film that just made the biggest impression on me on this particular night, when Barack Obama aired his half-hour TV special, was not anything Obama presented. It was the sour grapes John McCain squeezed in reaction.

He complained about all those sinister mystery contributions, the suspicious credit card funding that’s poured into the Obama campaign coffers. Not on the up-n-up. Something’s undoubtedly fishy here (probably because all that money hasn’t been raining down upon McCain).

Okay, Senator McCain. Wanna make something out of it? I helped underwrite that film. Me, Mary, with my piddly little credit card donations that I’ve inputted on numerous Obama campaign contribution forms online. You gonna set your running mate on me now – and accuse me of “palling around with terrorists”?

It’s a fairly long essay, but I urge you to read the whole thing right here.

    How about doing us a favor in the future and NOT italizing your quotes. It causes all the text beneath your blog on the front page to be italized. Thanks.
