Springtime for Dean-The second-quarter fundraising figures are out, and Dean's in good shape. Kerry leads the Democratic pack in money in the bank with $11 million, but Dean's $6 million warchest will have a big supplement from federal matching funds; 60% of his donations are expected to qualify, denoting that his grassroots are as strong as avertised However, the fun paragraph came at the end, where the Dean for America Hollywood Division fell out. Conservatives with sensitive stomachs should not read this just before breakfast-
The Dean campaign had what appeared to be the brightest list of glitterati, who are backing his antiwar bid. The actors, directors and authors on his donor list included Robin Williams, Ted Danson, Christopher Guest, Carl Reiner, Bradley Whitford, Alec Baldwin, Christopher Lloyd, Paul Newman, Mary Steenburgen, Joanne Woodward, Susan Sarandon, Barbra Streisand, Janeane Garofalo, Norman Lear, Aaron Sorkin, Mel Brooks and Stephen King.
Where do I start. Lear- Mr. People for the ACLU American Way, who was a good writer a quarter-century ago. Is Dean Meathead grown-up? Sorkin-Josh Bartlet in the flesh. It's a good thing for NBC that he's off The West Wing, for the shows might of counted as soft money contributions with him at the quill. Brooks- It does have a bit of a feel of The Producers. Make the most imaginably liberal candidate possible and plan to pocket the campaign contributions when he bombs, then stand aghast in horror when people flock to vote for him in droves. King-Which of the books describes Dean? How about Carrie? The outcast geeky kid progressive who reeks havoc on her high school prom party when's she's felt ignored and shunned for too long.
