(Bump) Winter Donation Drive/Jeff Gannon Memorial Fund

God, I hate doing this, but I'm going to spending prime coin going down to DC for the CPAC convention -- and it's going to be very expensive drinking and chatting with all sorts of swank people -- so I'm starting the Winter 2005 Ace of Spades HQ pledge drive.

What do you get for your donation? Well, when Ken Burns finishes his PBS documentary, Slicin' Like a Hammer: The Rise and Rise of Ace of Spades, you'll get the full 18-DVD set documenting my near-Andrew-Sullivan-like rise to power.

Also, 50% of all donations will be put into the Jeff Gannon Memorial Fund. Not a scholarship-- no, that's not what Jeff Gannon would have wanted. The Fund will be put exclusively towards buying alcohol, for me or whoever I'm attempting to get a job or assignment from at the time, but when I take that drink, I will say to myself, "For Jeff, that magnificent son-of-a-bitch."

I would do the old "One for me, one for Jeff Gannon" thing where I pour one drink out, but frankly that seems counterproductive to me. I think Jeff Gannon would want me pour the drink right into my gullet. It's going to end up in the earth, anyway. That's just a simple biological fact.

At any rate, to the extent you're feeling flush, expecting a big bonus and/or Bush tax refund, or just feel like pissing some of your hard earned money into a second-rate blog, hit the tip jar. And hit it hard.

Because that's what Jeff Gannon would want.

Thanks For the Sweet Crazy Blog Money! I've been trying to arrange a hotel, and just checked to see the crazy blog-money rolling in. Thank you so much, guys. I'll thank each of you personally, but for the moment, I'll just thank you generally. It's appreciated.

It takes a lot of grifting to support the Ace of Spades Lifestyle (TM).


Valentine's Day Mass Suicide Pact Foiled: The Broken-Hearted Suicide Club?

Or distraught followers of Jeff "The Only Other Important One on That Stage" Gannon?

You be the judge.

But I question the timing.
