Skip to comments.EBAY Auction hits $100,000: Original Harry Reid/Rush Limbaugh Smear Letter
Posted on 10/17/2007 1:23:30 PM PDT by rface
I told my wife that this was going to go into the several hundred thousands by the time it was through....
The bidding at EBay has reached $100,000.
No word from the signers of the original letter if any of them plan to contribute....much less match the winning bid as Limbaugh has pledged to do.
Do any of the following signers represent your state???
......Harry Reid ......Hillary Rodham Clinton ......Blanche Lincoln
......Richard Durbin ......Kent Conrad .......Bob Menendez
......Charles Schumer ......Christopher Dodd ......Barbara Mikulski
......Patty Murray ......Byron Dorgan ......Bill Nelson
......Daniel Akaka ......Dianne Feinstein ......Barack Obama
......Max Baucus ......Tom Harkin ......Jack Reed
......Joseph Biden .......Daniel Inouye .......Jay Rockefeller
......Barbara Boxer ......Edward M. Kennedy ......Ken Salazar
......Sherrod Brown ......John Kerry ......Bernie Sanders
......Robert Byrd ......Amy Klobuchar ......Debbie Stabenow
......Benjamin Cardin ......Mary Landrieu .......Jon Tester
......Tom Carper .......Frank Lautenberg ......Jim Webb
......Bob Casey ......Patrick Leahy ......Sheldon Whitehouse
......Carl Levin ......Ron Wyden
That’s more money than I make in a year. Otherwise I’d bid on it. I hope it goes to a good home. I wonder if the media will interview the winner? Naaaawwww.....
I’m curious, has there been ANY mention of this on the nightly news or MSM?
“Do any of the following signers represent your state???”
I don’t think they really represent any state.
One must admit, it does have the signatures of 41(?) U.S. Senators on it . . . giving it some real value. How many other documents of this kind are ever put-up for auction? I honestly don’t know.
We’ll see about this. I’m not convinced yet some a-hole DUmmie isn’t trying to hose this auction.
I didn’t think that murderabillia was allowed on ebay but there is it, a signed letter by Ted The Swimmer Kennedy. Also signed by a former member and recruiter of the KKK.
$100,000? That’s nothing. Hillary is smart enough to turn a $1,000 investment into $100,000. She could buy it with chicken feed.
I might have heard a passing comment on FOXNews
I hear ya! It takes me several years to make that in salary alone! I’m really glad for the benefactors!
I wouldn’t be terribly suprised if some rather affluent person purchased it and then put it up for bids again, benefitting the MCLE once more.
They pre-qualify the bidders, who ever wins will have his credit card on account. No DUmmie would ever spend $100,000 of their OWN money, just yours and mine..
How about Jim bid on it and we could all pitch in big time
As I understand it, however, a bid on eBay obligates the bidder to make good and pay up if he or she wins. A bidder had best not be a kidder, in other words.
Seriously, this is the FIRST time that congress has (officially) come after a private citizen for exercising his 1st Amendment rights. Just makes me wonder what's next...
Don't hold your breath. They don't give a crap about Marines or any other military people. Most likely, if the price goes much higher, they will sue for their share of the proceeds.
Now, $102,300.00!!!...... Go Rush Go!!!
State of Denial. State of Confusion. State of Fear.
I see those states represented. ;^)
I think we should all write or phone the signatories and ask if they plan to match the bid as Rush has pledged to do, and if not, why not?
Ask them what it is about the MC-LEF that they don’t support
Rush really stuck this up their (more than) ample butts!
Rush (and his staff) thought of that and had some screening mechanism to ensure bids would be valid. I tried bidding and I never got a confirmation that I had passed their screen (you had to have a valid eBay screen name and history; you had to be on-file; etc.). You have to hand it to Rush & Co., they thought this out very well to avoid having a scam -- my guess is, they have valid bidders involved who are taking this quite seriously. And before this auction comes to a conclusion, I assume there will have been more due diligence done on the final bidder(s).
This is so much fun to watch!
Rush Is pre-qualifiying any bidders. so you don’t have a bunch of Yahoos bidding it up and out of sight....
Rush should pocket the money and not give it to charity. Thumb his nose at the b***ards.
Bill Nelson is our (FL) scumbag senator..........but not after the next election........
Just checking out hw analysis on the hildebeast’s signature -
“An attempt to maintain a vertical slant reflects an effort to adopt a detached or impersonal attitude, positively characterized by independence and restraint, but negatively by self-centeredness and rigidity.”
3:30 p.m., Central time, Bid just jumped to $102,300. Eat that Harry Reid! HA HA HA HA HA (Clinton kackle)!
I notice both of my state’s Senators signed (Maryland). Of course, here in the Communist Counties of Maryland, they hate Rush and Bush so much that they’re more than happy to base their continued hate on a proven lie.
I think this could creep up to $1/2 Mill.....
Not so. Exactly what he is doing here is the perfect way to "thumb his nose" at them...especially if he has pledged to match the winning bid. I say "touche".
That the price will entirely go to charity is probably a big skewing factor. Anyone prone to six digit donations anyway would be delighted to score a historic document, autographer’s delight, and publicized notariety in the process.
I am happy to say that neither Senator from the great State of Texas is a signatory to this ridiculous tripe. John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchinson will continue to recieve my vote.
God Bless Texas! And, God Bless Rush Limbaugh!
to date NONE of the Phony 41 have pledged any matching funds.
Rush Limbaugh has pledge to match this auction dollar for dollar.
Number of views 335180+ and climbing.
(that is more than most of MSNBC's shows)
Message to Rush:
If you could link the list of signatories to a closeup of the signature, it would be yet another service to humanity.
The closeups would allow us to analyze the handwriting so we might better understand what afflicts or possesses these people.
Rush is brilliant, he is sticking it to those who ignore the constitution and a great charity reaps the rewards.....and still the dims do not get it.....
I have a letter signed by Senator Bill Bradly (D, NJ) However, it is probably worth more (and not that much either) because he was an NBA star rather than because he was one in an endless line of RAT party NJ senators (even if he was far from the worst of them).
As a Freeper pointed out yesterday supreme imperial leader Byrd’s signature was not his.
I think it will go a lot higher, probably in the $250k range, but that’s just a guess.
It certainly has historic value.
One day to go.Most will wait until the last half hour to bid
Sorry to say...KBH is retiring...
It’s been all over Fox News. I was home all day yesterday so I had it on all day. I saw it on Fox and Friends, Cavuto, Shep, H&C, and Red Eye (yes, I’m a news junkie). In fact, Alan Colmes said he wants to buy it, put it back on Ebay and give the money to the ACLU. That’s very capitalist of him. Probably wants them to mount a campaign to symbolically bury the word “Islamo-fascist”.
