Is there any more of a reason to get “Blogger Rage” Shays outta here and support Jim Himes? Check his performance out on PBS’s the News Hour. You go Jan! We’ve done really good so far. Jane Hamsher, who is hanging in the C&L Bat Cave today—says:
Yesterday’s $5 fundraiser for Jim Himes has netted 80 new donors to our Blue America page, and by way of comparison Shays only had 107 donors during the last quarter. So it would be great if we could find 29 more donors, which would mean Jim had more contributors in just over 24 hours from Blue America alone than Shays had during the entire second quarter. If you’ve got $5 to spare, think of it as a way to combat the useful idiocy of Brian Baird.

Democrats opposed to the war held their tongues about Baird last week. But on Thursday, Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., told Congressional Quarterly: “I’ll give Brian a gun and let him go to Iraq and shoot whoever he wants.”
When asked about Stark’s comment, Baird said, “What was that all about?”
