Best $5 I ever spent!

This arrived via email and is just too much fun not to share:

Instead of (or in addition to) sending around more emails about how horrible Sarah Palin is as a potential vice president, let's all make a donation to Planned Parenthood... in her name.

When you make a donation to Planned Parenthood in her name, they'll send her a card telling her that the donation has been made in her honor.

You'll need to fill in the address to let Planned Parenthood know where to send the "in Sarah Palin's honor" card. I suggest you use the address for the McCain campaign headquarters, which is:

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

Make sure to chose the "Honorary or Memorial Donations" link on the left side of the page at:

I just made a donation. The thank you email I received in response says:
Your contribution to Planned Parenthood Federation of America is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable under law. IRS regulations require us to state that we did not provide any goods or services to you in consideration of your contribution.
However, I believe I was provided a wonderful service for my contribution. It's called poetic justice. Priceless!

Best idea EVER...I've been so frustrated over her and this is perfect irony. Thanks so much for the suggestion. I just made my donation.

Oh the irony! I love it!

Oh, this is AWESOME.

I've posted this on my blog, AND facebook, and I'm gonna try to get every single person I know to do this. Even ones voting McCain. (Yes, I think I can do it. It's a he, so the women's rights thing isn't enough to make him vote against McCain, but he'll spare $5 at my request!)

I'd love to see this be one of those things that gets massive and gets press coverage...making it more massive.
