holy sh*t this REALLY pisses off conservatives.

Maybe because they want a TransAm of their own...

Good lord, people, you've made my Friday. Time to leave work, grab a cold sixer of Icehouse, head to the casa, and donate. One of these charities means a lot to me.

I love y'all. Except the haters.

Carth: Politicians are banned from accepting gifts in certain circumstances. Someone might want to check if Biden could legally accept the transam before raising money to get him one.


Yes, he can accept this type of gift. Link (PDF)

It's not coming from a "prohibited source" and it's not being offered because of his official position.

Can Quakers use the internet? I thought it was, like, forbidden for them.


You're thinking of the Amish. And the other oatmeal.

They're jealous, and also this is the kind of thing that stirs up the left and makes for good news. They're not completely inept when it comes to shrewdness, it's actually one of their strong suits.

Might want to tell Ryan. Doesn't fit the narrative. We're heading in the WRONG direction!

Good find.
 
2012-10-12 05:38:14 PM  
Done: $5, anonymous, no perk. And frankly I'm not impressed by Biden, AFAIC he's just an excuse to donate $5 to worthy charities.

To wit:

I_Love_Cheesecake: HST's Dead Carcass: It's picked up a bit, but dying off again.

This needs a serious shot in the arm.

The problem, in terms of reaching out to the media, is that it's a Friday afternoon. We may just have to rely on social media until Monday morning.

In the meantime, we should contact the heck out of places like HuffPo, TMZ, Gawker, Wonkette, TPM, etc.


I was thinking the car shows... speedTV, Fast n' Loud, Jesse james, the American chopper guys...Pimp my Ride (Yo I herd you like Trans Ams, so we put a Trans Am in your Trans Am)... those shows are always looking for a project that 'has synergy' and exposes them to a wider audience... so they do a show where they take the old Trans Am bought for this and 'pimp' it out or paint it or whatever they do... they get to be a part of the charity thing, they get a tv show out of it... maybe some extra attention because of the VP/charity connection and the auction...

Hello $2500
 
2012-10-12 05:41:41 PM  
Just donated another 6 bucks to get it to $2,500. This thread and all the butthurt from the cons is just way too entertaining.

Put it on the rear quarter panel.
 
2012-10-12 05:44:03 PM  
Apparently there are people who believe that the "Bird" is going to actually be given to Joe, this was never the case. It was always going to be auctioned to charity.

So, yes, all of the haters that are chiding this donation are actually chiding donating to the Biden Breast Health Initiative, Doctors Without Borders, the Wounded Warrior Project and GLAAD. Pat yourselves on the backs, chumps. You've earned it.

To the rest of us, happy Friday! It's one to remember!

I'm posting way late, but that's partially because the thread has been blowing up faster than I can read it. Anyway, this is fantastic. Donated and shared.

Apparently I didn't notice that Twitter shortened the name by one character. >.

You guys, sometimes I really love the internets and the politics tab. This is fantastic.

This is going to totally screw up the market for used Trans Ams.

I hope he actually signs the dash, too. That signature would look great on the rear panel.
 
2012-10-12 05:45:20 PM  
Oh darn, looks like I only donated 5 bucks instead of the 6 needed to get to 2,500 :(. I'll donate later again tonight after I get off from my 2nd job.
