C'mon Harry. Pony up.

New Why should he?
Admittedly he's a scumbucket, but he never said he'd match funds. Especially to play into another he said/they said idiocy. The trouble with the Dems is that they'd like to be as crooked/nasty as the Reps but they're totally incompetent.
On a related note, if there really was a deity, Dizzy City would have a large hose in it and the US would be getting an enema...

New Sure.
Would be interesting to see a politician put money where his mouth is.

REID: MADAM PRESIDENT, EARLY THIS MONTH I CAME TO THE FLOOR TO DISCUSS SOME COMMENTS MADE BY RUSH LIMBAUGH. FOLLOWING MY REMARKS, MORE THAN 40 OF MY SENATE COLLEAGUES AND I CO-SIGNED A LETTER TO THE CHAIRMAN OF CLEAR CHANNEL, MARK MAY, TELLING HIM THAT WE WANTED HIM TO CONFER WITH RUSH LIMBAUGH REGARDING THE } STATEMENTS HE MADE. I'VE SINCE SPOKEN TO MARK MAY ABOUT THIS. MARK MAY, IN FACT, CALLED ME REGARDING THIS LETTER. THIS WEEK, RUSH LIMBAUGH PUT THE ORIGINAL COPY OF THAT LETTER UP FOR AUCTION ON E-BAY. MR. PRESIDENT, WE DIDN'T HAVE TIME, OR WE COULD HAVE GOTTEN EVERY SENATOR TO SIGN THAT LETTER. BUT HE PUT THE LETTER UP FOR AUCTION ON E-BAY AND I THINK VERY, VERY CONSTRUCTIVELY, LEFT THE PROCEEDS OF THAT IT GO TO THE MARINE CORPS LAW ENFORCEMENTS FOUNDATION. THAT PROVIDES SCHOLARSHIP ASSISTANCE TO MARINES AND FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL WHOSE PARENTS FALL IN THE LINE OF DUTY. WHAT COULD BE A MORE WORTHWHILE CAUSE? I THINK IT'S REALLY GOOD THAT THIS MONEY ON E-BAY IS GOING TO BE RAISED FOR THIS PURPOSE. WHEN I SPOKE TO MARK MAYIC HE AND I THOUGHT THIS PROBABLY WOULDN'T MAKE MUCH MONEY, A LETTER WRITTEN BY DEMOCRATIC SENATORS COMPLAINING ABOUT SOMETHING. THIS MORNING, THE BID IS MORE THAN $2 MILLION FOR THIS. WE HAVE WATCHED IT DURING THE WEEK. IT KEEPS GOING UP-AND-UP AND UP. THERE'S ONLY A LITTLE BIT OF TIME LEFT ON IT. BUT IT CERTAINLY IS GOING TO BE MORE THAN $2 MILLION. NEVER DID WE THINK THAT THIS LETTER WOULD BRING MONEY OF THIS NATURE. AND, FOR THE CAUSE, MADAM PRESIDENT, IT IS EXTREMELY GOOD. NOW, EVERYONE KNOWS THAT RUSH LIMBAUGH AND I DON'T AGREE ON EVERYTHING IN LIFE AND MAYBE THAT IS KIND OF AN UNDERSTATEMENT. BUT WITHOUT QUALIFICATION MARK MAY, THE OWNER OF THE NETWORK THAT HAS RUSH LIMBAUGH AND RUSH LIMBAUGH SHOULD KNOW THAT THIS LETTER THAT THEY'RE AUCTIONING IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING THAT RAISES MONEY FOR A WORTHWHILE CAUSE. I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE COULD DO MORE IMPORTANT THAN HELPING TO ENSURE THAT CHILDREN OF OUR FALLEN SOLDIERS AND POLICE OFFICERS WHO HAVE FALLEN IN THE LINE OF DUTY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR THEIR CHILDREN TO HAVE A GOOD EDUCATION. THINK OF THIS, MORE THAN $2 MILLION \ufffd THAT WILL REALLY HELP. THAT'S, AGAIN, AN UNDERSTATEMENT. THERE'S ONLY A LITTLE BIT OF TIME LEFT SO I WOULD ASK THOSE THAT ARE WANTING TO DO MORE, THAT THEY CAN GO TO HARRY REID LETTER AND IT WILL COME UP ON E-BAY. I ENCOURAGE ANYONE INTERESTED WITH THE MEANS TO CONSIDER CONTRIBUTING TO THIS WORTHWHILE CAUSE. I STRONGLY BELIEVE WHEN WE CAN PUT OUR DIFFERENCES ASIDE, EVEN HARRY REID AND RUSH LIMBAUGH, WE SHOULD DO THAT AND TRY TO ACCOMPLISH GOOD THINGS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THIS DOES THAT, MADAM PRESIDENT. MORE THAN $2 MILLION FOR A LETTER SIGNED BY THIS SENATOR AND MY FRIENDS.


His judicious use of the word "we" in the bold statement certainly looks like he's trying to take credit for something.

New Yeah, but
he clarify that 1.38 minutes later on in the letter.
New Of course he did.
Too much of today's music is fashionable crap dressed as artistry.Adrian Belew
New Yep...just like Rush.
New And how much exactly is St. Rush going to pony up *himself*?
Quoth the BeepSter:

Only to someone who maybe isn't such an "equal-opportunity pessimist" as they would like to claim. To the rest of us, out here in the reality-based community, two things stand out:

A) The two sentences, "Never did we think that this letter would bring money of this nature." and "I don't know what we could do more important than helping to ensure that children of our fallen soldiers and police officers who have fallen in the line of duty have the opportunity for their children to have a good education."[*] don't actually "take credit for" anything -- they say just that, i), he and his pals didn't foresee that the letter would bring a lot of money; and, ii) he can't think of a nobler use for said money. So, where is he lying -- are you claiming that they did actually foresee that the letter would bring a lot of money, or that indeed he can think of a better use for the moolah, or both?

And B), If he wanted to, he is actually entitled to "take credit for something": If he hadn't written this letter, Rush wouldn't have it to sell, and the money that is being raised on Ebay -- would not be being raised on Ebay. So how, exactly, has he done any less than Rush here? Is Rush going to match the proceeds from the Ebay letter sale out of his own pocket, or what?

So, mr Equal-opportunity Pessimist About ALL Politicians: When, if ever, will we see you invest as much witork in sophistry and innuendo about someone on the other side of the aisle...? (Or, alternatively: When, if ever, will you drop the fucking pretense?)

Not holding my breath (either way),

Why, [link|http://worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=58260|yes he is.]

A woman bidding on Ebay paid more than $2 million for the letter. Limbaugh will match the amount.


and as to taking credit...this guy touches on that pretty well also...

Harry Reid's patting himself on the back for being somewhat responsible for the raising of more than $4 million for a good charity, and you know what? He does have something to do with it \ufffd in the same way the captain of the Exxon Valdez was responsible for the cleaning up of Prince William Sound.
Too much of today's music is fashionable crap dressed as artistry.Adrian Belew
New Wow, good for him!
I'm impressed, really I am. (With some small reservation for this really being the truth; I see you favour the same dubious "newssources" as your bovine namesake.)

Still, that article is also wrong in two ways: For Senator Reid to be doing a good deed "in the same way the captain of the Exxon Valdez was responsible for the cleaning up of Prince William Sound", the Senator would have to be directly responsible for *causing* the problem that is now being alleviated, as that was the captain's only (or at least main) contribution to that earlier one. Is Doug Powers claiming Senator Rid personally killed those soldiers and policemen? And/or are you?

And, still, also, Senator Reid *has* already ponied up once: He wrote the letter that was sold for that ridiculous sum of money. *He* is responsible for Rush having that letter to sell in the first place. Mr Powers' drivel about "A woman gives more than $2 million of her money to a charity"[*] is just that: So much drivel. (Which you are apparently endorsing and expecting us to buy.) She isn't "giving" away her money, she's *buying* something for it.

Also, there are still all the other points in my previous post, the ones you *haven't* answered.

Are you going to?




[*]: And why does he -- and you -- keep gibbering on about the sex of this otherwise anonymous buyer the whole time? Is it because women are supposed to be more "nurturing" or something, so the reader will be -- like, we will (perhaps over-)charitably assume you were -- be fooled into thinking that she is "selflessly giving" something?

What? You're on crack. Taking this one step too far down the path, my friend. Harry wrote the letter. Now he is trying to take credit for everything after. Exxon guy hit a rock...etc...

And I buy candy bars for silly amounts of money...and I give the candy away. Why, because its being sold for a cause. Its the only time I buy these things. But according to you, thats not charity because I got something for it. I guess fundraisers aren't really fundraisers.

As to when will I point out something on the other side of the aisle? When it would actually result in a conversation. Around here...that isn't likely. Someone has to take the other side...besides Marlowe that is. Guess maybe you'd rather be boring.
