I am sure you have heard about Norm Coleman's never-ending quest to drag out his election challenge to Al Franken, but have you heard about NormDollar.com?
"Al Franken will be the 60th Democratic vote, so DC Republicans are funding Coleman's endless court appeals. If thousands of us donate $1 to defeat Republicans each day Coleman doesn't concede, we'll reverse the incentives! Can you donate $1 a day?"
From an email I got yesterday:
Our progress together is pretty amazing:
"So far, NormDollar.com has raised $15,000..." -- New York Times, April 19
"Norm Coleman Raises $28,000 for Progressives" -- Huffington Post, April 22
"About $40,000 has been raised..." -- Texas blog Burnt Orange Report, April 29
"Coleman Raises $60,000 for Progressives" -- DailyKos, May 1
And today, we're up to $71,500! This weekend, I ran into a major
reporter and told him how much Norm Coleman's stubbornness was raising
to help progressives defeat Republicans. He said, "Wow!! That's a lot!"
Together, we're making a difference. Thanks for being a bold progressive.

This is almost as good as the donations to Planned Parenthood in honor of Sarah Palin during the presidential campaign.
