"Dear Sarah Palin, Thank You So Much for Your Contribution to Planned Parenthood"

My best friend Mandy forwarded an amazingly devious and wonderful way to stick it to the (wo)man.

I, of course, hope that every reader of the blog (all 7 of you -- haaaay!) are as Go-Bama as I am, but if you feel weird about donating to his campaign (which you shouldn't because, seriously, the alternative to an Obama/Biden executive branch is pretty much certain hell) perhaps this is an idea for you. McCain thought he was being all pro-Lady by choosing Palin, but what he basically did was slap us all in the vagina by nominating a crazytalk Prolife woman to be his Vice President and probably President because he doesn't seem long for this world, and a Palin presidency is so terrifying I would have to leave the country if it happened. And so ... so you don't want to donate to Obama (but, really, you ought to), but you want to protect a woman's right to choose and you want to keep the government out of your uterus -- so here is a "fiendishly brilliant alternative" to donating to Obama's campaign.

Make a donation to Planned Parenthood. In Sarah Palin's name. And here's the good part: when you make a donation to Planned Parenthood in her name, they'll send her a card telling her that the donation has been made in her honor. Click here to donate to Planned Parenthood website in Sarah Palin's name. You'll need to fill in the address to let the good people of Planned Parenthood know where to send the thank you card to Sarah Palin. The instigator of this idea suggests sending the card to the McCain HQ, which is:

McCain for President
1235 S. Clark Street
1st Floor
Arlington, VA 22202

Perhaps this could become a nice interweb hack, and the press will pick up on the millions of dollars being donated to Planned Parenthood in Sarah Palin's name and run stories about how she ought to be ashamed by her anti-abortion stance as a woman with a uterus, and then won't the ovary be all over her face.

Update: This is Patt Morrison's idea! Kudos (the chocolate and peanut butter variety).

Wow. I, of course, have to be completely neutral and opinion-free on this idea... but my new bride thanks you immensely.

I gave Planned Parenthood a cash "donation" after my STD tests were done.

I have lost a lot of weight lately, and want someone else to look at my skinny body, maybe it is time to go back.
