MoveOn rakes in $120K+ off Palin email

MoveOn rakes in $120K+ off Palin email @ 11:01 am by Jeremy P. Jacobs

In yet another example of Sarah Palin's lightning rod quality, MoveOn.org has raised over $120,000 in just a day after sending out an email criticizing the Alaska governor and asking for money.

On Wednesday, MoveOn sent an email to supporters criticizing Palin's op-ed on energy issues in the Washington Post. The group asked for money to run an ad in response to Palin.

At the time of this writing on Thursday, MoveOn has raised $124,000 and has extended its goal to $200,000.

Palin has a high favorability rating among Republicans but remains a very divisive figure among the general public, according to polling released Thursday. A slightly higher - though not statistically significant - percentage few her unfavorably than view her favorably.

For liberal groups like MoveOn, that can translate into dollars, as this indicates.

Holy Moly! Wow!
A whole 124,000 dollars, I’m sooo impressed.

Is there any doubt that should Sarah actively
solicit donations, it would be substantially
more than that?

Proof that they are scared of Sarah. If she was ‘over’, they wouldn’t bother.

Amazing how in the corrupt, state-run media Sarah Palin is intentionally and perjoritively labeled “controversial”, yet MoveOn.org and their practices escape similar labeling.

Why - exactly - is Sarah Palin “controversial”? Because she opposes lord Obama’s policies? Or because liberals continue to use the politics of personal destruction toward her and that is the real source of controversy?

But, but . . . how can that be? She's no threat to the Left, is she? She's just Caribou Barbie and can't do them any harm, right?

Not as divisive as George Soros' lackeys at Move On.Org.

“yet MoveOn.org and their practices escape similar labeling.”

They’re known in state-run media circles as “grass roots.”

Moveon.org can tap their leader, George Soros, for several billion bucks if need be.

That makes this story little different than propaanda.

Interesting that the Democrats are already calling out their fatcats to beat up on Sarah.

I’m hoping that Palin is going to start a Moveon.org type of organization. Without organization, we are doomed. Kiss America goodbye.

MoveOn.org claims to have 8 million members nationwide, yet they get only $124,000? How much of that comes directly from Soros himself funneled through the accounts of different donors?

I always enjoy pointing out that Soros is a self-admitted Nazi collaborator during WW2 in his native Hungary, and seems quite proud of it. His tactics make it appear that he liked what he saw.

i really need to make a ‘donate now’ button targeting the liberal kool-aid drinkers.

they would give their $$ thinking i would bash Sarah.... thus draining fanatic $$ from the opposition. and in true JJackson form, i would end up with 99.5% going to ‘administrative overhead’

They raised $120,000. SarahPAC has raised $200,000—without a single email appeal—since her resignation announcement.

I would like MoveOn to ask their contributors which of the following statements is more true:

A. Democrats believe all political participants, including themselves, are obligated morally to uphold the Constitution’s role as the nation’s controlling law.

B. Democrats believe the Democrat party, both its individuals and the group itself, should control government as they believe benefits the country, irrespective of what is written in the Constitution.

An honest answer would be B.

Forgive me while I laugh, 120,000 for an Ad, against someone who supposedly have “no political career in her future” and is “Irrelevant” they sure spend a lot of time targeting this supposed irrelevant person don’t they. Can someone on board here with a psychology degree figure these dorks out. They are actually gonna make an Ad about Sarah being opposed to cap and tax, AWESOME, wanna know why, her Washington Post op-ed piece was not reported in the media(oh gee I wonder why) they will release the ad, the majority of Americans are against it, they will read Sarah’s piece, agree with her, and she will get even more popular, thanks moveon.org, gee for a group named MOVE ON, they sure haven’t MOVED ON with their lives have they

*****Soros is a self-admitted Nazi collaborator during WW2 in his native Hungary, and seems quite proud of it.****

There has to be a psychological component to explain the difference between socialists and freedom lovers.

Is it a “neat-freak/control freak” mentality? i.e. Socialists seem to want to organize individuals into categories. Is this authoritarianism directed more against those who have what they consider “untidy lives”?
i.e. the working poor, the lesser-educated, folks who like fishing & hunting, the religious people of diverse faiths?

This societal sorting and shredding appears to begin in the public school system and by college we may have a tribe of ill-behaved delinquents, but their thinking is on a one-directional track, terrifying, but tidy.

The socialist wants government nazis to run every aspect of a citizen’s life from cradle to grave to include whether you should be born and whether your demise should be hastened, what you should eat and how much the price. What vehicle you should drive and whether you may smoke.

Is it souped yet?

Incredible. No one even knows for sure what Palin will do, but the Left is so scared! They KNOW Palin represents the real people, not the phonies and Soros’s ultra-elite.
