From CNN.com: Harry Whittington on being "peppered" with birdshot by Dick Cheney -- "My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice President Cheney and his family have had to go through this week..."That's like the World Trade Center buildings apologizing to those hijacked airplanes. This is the world in which we live. Embrace it.
The American Republican Party has, and they're opening the field to creative fundraising. Rather than attending a boring $1,000-a-plate fundraisers, the G.O.P. will now allow contributors to give $1,000, $10,000 and $100,000 gifts in exchange for being "peppered" with birdshot by either the George W. Bush or Dick Cheney. Since it's such an honor for this to happen -- obviously Harry Whittington is embarrassed and contrite because he has so far paid Dick Cheney or the G.O.P. no money for his peppering -- this will be added to the Republican Party fundraising handbook. Let's hope as many Republican contributors as possible avail of this new way to give.
- $1,000 donation to the G.O.P. -- contributor will be peppered in shins and feet
- $10,000 donation to G.O.P. -- contributor will be peppered in rear thighs and buttocks
- $100,000 donation -- contributor will be peppered in chest, shoulder and choice of which side of face
