Paging TN Guerilla Women

I got a delightful suggestion in my e-mail box today that really appeals to my sense of productive mischief. And I think those Hillary supporters still nursing hurt feelings might appreciate it, too.

If you simply cannot donate any money to the Obama campaign or, for that matter, the Democratic Party (paging Alma Sanford!), why not donate to Planned Parenthood instead. And--here’s the kicker--do so in honor of Sarah Palin, the faux feminist who doesn’t believe in choice or sex education for teenagers.

Your donation will be tax deductible. And Planned Parenthood will “mail a personalized card notifying the individual or family you have chosen to remember.”

By the way, this is not a campaign of Planned Parenthood. This is something that some folks dreamed up on their own. I guess they were completely dumbfounded that any true feminist would support a ticket like McCain-Palin, which stands against everything women have fought for since, well, forever.

Here’s how it works. Go to the Planned Parenthood website and click on “Donate,” then scroll down to “Honorary or Memorial Donations.” Fill in the McCain campaign headquarters address so the Planned Parenthood folks know where to send Gov. Palin her personalized card:

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

Pass it on.
