    Okay, you remember Brent Rinehart (rhymes with) from Oklahoma that did a comicstrip to help him through a tough reelection race right?

    Yikes. Well, Sean Tevis has apparently gone and done it RIGHT. To the tune of $96,000 in campaign donations within days. His opponent is flabbergasted.

    Holy crap.:eek:

    Do you realise what this might mean??

    The end of politics-as-usual as we know it.

    Special interest groups don't have a hope in Hell, compared to the millions upon millions of web surfers that will be willing to contribute to a worthy candidate.
