Obama Fundraising Goes Bonkers After GOP’s Day-Long Attack
Proving Sean at fivethirtyeight.com correct, Barack Obama has raised around $8 million since Sarah Palin’s speech last night. Better than the $7 million McCain got after the Palin pick was announced. Democrats I’ve spoken to since the speech have had two reactions, sometimes simultaneously: (1) anger about the fact that their guy got roughed up pretty bad, and (2) fear that the GOP has a new super-effective and super-likeable surrogate. Both emotions lead to the opening of wallets. Maybe Obama doesn’t want people to calm down?
For the record, Obama has responded to the beating he took last night. It’s after the jump.
