I still don't see any disclaimer on the funding site that says "We are not affiliated with VP Biden or the Obama campaign".

Well, here's how the liberal media is describing the debate:

Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.'s smirking, aggressive performance during the vice-presidential debate on Thursday could be seen as a message for his boss: Here's how you do it...But Mr. Biden repeatedly mocked and interrupted Mr. Ryan, leading Republicans to use words like "unhinged," "buffoon" and "disrespectful" in the hours after the fast-paced, 90-minute exchange ended.

Cyclometh: Per another Farker's suggestion, I've submitted a thread to the /r/progressive subreddit: Link


Wait... reddit or the chans?

Aquapope: Posted this in the original thread, but I don't know if anybody is reading that anymore, so...
----------------------------------
Dear Mr. RichieLaw:
I think a link to this thread on the donation site, down there with the links to the charities, would be appropriate. Something like "The discussion thread that started it all". That would give FARK more exposure, and maybe more hits, and maybe more TF subscriptions for Drew's beer fund. Also, the links to the charities should have captions so the viewer doesn't have to look at the URL to see where they go.

You and Coeyagi and Cyclometh and Hack Patooey are the quintessence of awesome and should get TF for life. You guys should be known collectively as "The Prophets of Fark", or "Seal Team Fark" or "Fark Jedi" or "Masters of the Farkiverse" or some such.

I'm going to have to get a Twitter account now, just so I can twitter bomb Portia De Rossi (gay), Christina Applegate (breast cancer), Sanjay Gupta (doctors) and Tammy Duckworth (wounded warriors)...


I responded to you in the other thread:

I have thought about doing this but I wanted to make sure it is cool with everyone on the forums. Some people have some things in their profiles that they probably don't want broadcast to the world. I just got back to a computer so I am going to update the pitch to reflect that this started on Fark.

traylor: I contributed my share yesterday because I naively believed that this wasn't a thing about US politics but rather the Onion and the lulz. Seeing this thread going green on the Politics tab made me sad. I want my 5 back, dammit.


I'm sorry you feel that way. This is more about the Onion and the lulz. However, by the very nature of the project, there will be a liberal leaning. I mean, we're celebrating a Democratic Vice President. So, if you really want your $5 back I'll paypal it to you. Hit up my email and provide proof of your donation and your fark login.

I think the reason some people don't get this is because they don't get the concept of expending time, energy and money on an enterprise that benefits only someone else and not themselves.

Also they don't read everything, and make assumptions to fill in the gaps created by the things they missed.

Okay, in for $5 and Facebook'd.

A little annoyed that it takes the money immediately instead of only paying out if it hits the mark a la Kickstarter, but honestly, giving somebody on Fark $5 and not getting shiat for it is how things get done around here anyways, so why not.

Please do't feed the trolls or respond to the haters. We won't change the mind of anyone here just to shiat up the thread and it saps all the positive energy to have people bickering. I would personally love it if every threadshiatter post was not met with derision, but simple silence.

Considering they were using those words before the debate, I don't see why we should care.

Yeah, my bad. How about another $5?

Forget it. I was looking for this thread but I could only find it on the Politics tab. I was angry but later I found it also on the Main Page so it's fine now. And btw you said this is also a celebration of the VP, but if I think about it and see the reactions I am not sure this stunt will make people love him more or hate him more. Oh and thank you for your work.

The point of this is not to increase Biden's popularity. It is to make a meme become reality while benefiting a bunch of people who need it. Simple as that.

/If Biden becomes more popular as a result, so be it.

You haven't been outside lately? Republicans hate Biden even more after he shaved Ryan's liver on live television. Anything you do to bring more attention to Biden means the Republicans believe you are Satan's offspring. You should be uncomfortable about the safety of yourself and your family, seriously.

I agree with Cyclometh. Or perhaps some talented Farker could create a "DebbieDownerwhawhawha.jpeg" or a "Bluebirdof Happinesstakingapoo.jpeg" if a response is truely needed. By now, if you haven't gotten the true message of charity giving, lulz, etc., you will not ever get it.

Just my opinion. :)

I love Fark, and the hodgepodge of idiots, geniuses, dreamers, poets, drunks and other assorted morans that make this feel like, well, a community.

This is the most epic thing I have ever seen here. Almost have a tear in my eye and hope that the 'Bird gets auctioned far above value.

And Biden? Yeah, you. You're a magnificent bastard.
