I like your first idea best.
I just received word from someone close to Ms. Irey's campaign that they have received about 50 online contributions since 9pm EDT last night. Plus numerous phone calls requesting the campaign address, and a significant spike in website hits.
Thank you Free Republic, for sending a message to Mr. Murtha, and especially to our troops! And thanks to all the other interested forums following this despicable behavior and promoting Murtha's opponent - Diana Irey.
