McCain ran a "far more efficient campaign,"

That's like saying that the the Formula One racer who came in last ran his car most efficiently - i.e. got most miles per gallon.

And we did get much funnier stories from the McCain Palin Campaign.

So maybe it was worth it. I'll send him a Buck fourtysix to cover my part of the humor.

Too many state and local committees that were collecting contributions from first time donors that have shown the "small donor" pattern to be correct. While there were obviously some big cigars, this thing, much like Ron Paul's campaign was truly grassroots in it's fund raising.

It is really good to see that back in politics.

You left out a word.

But you have to ask what happened to all the 527 Swiftboaters this election. Seems, from reports that the economy kept them from raising money to run big ads for McCain. You really have to appreciate the irony of that.
