What’re you just sittin’ there for, Your Royal Laziness?? Your donation’s tax-deductible, and 100% of it goes to fulfill our troops’ requests! Now give ’til your wallet begs for U.N. observers!
Wait a second. “Join the VC“???
Something’s fishy here.
The Heroes of the Blogosphere Challenge to raise funds for Spirit of America’s efforts to support our troops is heating up. Since Fusileer 6 (a.k.a. John of Castle Argghhh!) just turned loose one of my propaganda leaflets on Esmay’s Echelons of Eeeeeeeevil …
… I’d better load my shells with the next broadsheet o’ lies and send it over toward the kitten-killing fiends of Wizbang’s Victory Coalition (who are also a secret fanclub for Vanilla Ice). We wouldn’t want them to think we’ve overlooked their rag-tag band of insurgents, now would we?
Fire control, this is the bridge. Batteries released!
As of a minute past midnight (Pacific Time) this morning, the Heroes of the Blogosphere Challenge is on! Open those wallets and help our troops win the war of ideas in Iraq! 100% of your tax-deductible donation (net of credit card or Paypal fees) will be used to fulfill requests like these that Spirit of America gets from Americans serving abroad.
Take the fight to the craven, cowardly enemy (I hear they wear bloomers!) by clicking on the poster above! Onward, Fusileers!
UPDATE: For those who are wondering, the painting in the center of the poster is “DOUGLAS A. MUNRO COVERS THE WITHDRAWAL OF THE 7th MARINES AT GUADALCANAL” by Bernard D’Andrea.
