Its a testament to the phenomenal excitement that greeted Palins selection in 2008 that Team McCain raised $8.8 million in just 48 hours after she was named VP. As for Ryan, Ed noted on Sunday that Team Mitt collected $3.5 million on 41,000 donations during the first day after he was introduced, which tells us two things. One: As you might expect, the bigger donations from more ardent Ryan fans came flooding in right away. Over the first 24 hours, the average contribution was north of 85 bucks. Two: Although it took them two more days to raise just a bit more money than they did on day one, theyre still averaging 30,000 donations per day over the last 48 hours. Thats the smaller-money donors flowing in now to show their support too, which has driven the average contribution down to a shade above $73.
But never mind all that; given the huge sums being spent this year on both sides, this is pocket change. The real money is in Republican Super PACs. Anyone seen any reports on how theyre doing this week? Id be awfully curious to know whose side the GOPs megabucks donors are on with respect to Ryans selection. Are they in sync with the base, which is thrilled to see Romney show such balls on an issue as momentous as entitlement reform? Or are they in sync with the pessimistic strategists who are already in Game Change II mode for Politico?

I will proudly vote Romney/Ryan on Nov. 6
You Biden’s promise of CHAINS didn’t bring Dear Leader an infusion of cash?
Mebbe Peggy Joseph sent him $3.00. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P36x8rTb3jI
I believe someone a few years ago showed that the average contribution to Republicans was $50.00, from people who work for a living.
But some heavy hitters are pitching-in now. One thing we all seem to agree upon is wanting Zero gone.
Yeah, Baffling Joe Biden’s latest utterance is pretty funny, coming from the party of slavery. Southern sons of the soil, sorry, but that’s what it is.
I don’t think even our `Ministry of Truth’ can save Obama this go-around; I love the smell of demo flop-sweat in the morning, it smells like ....
I need to get bumper stickers for ours cars. Romney/Ryan is worthy of my public support.
It’s a good start.
