Help offset President Bush's fundraiser against freshman Chris Murphy and challenger Jim Himes.  Donate today!

This Friday, George W. Bush is coming to Henry Kissinger's house in Kent, Connecticut for an exclusive, $1000 a head ($10,000 for a snapshot with the President!) fundraiser for Republican Challenger David Cappiello (running against Democratic Freshman Representative Chris Murphy) in Connecticut's 5th Congressional District.

Bush ally and war cheerleader and health care bamboozler Chris Shays (R-CT04) (who is facing a strong challenge from Jim Himes) is a co-chair of the event.

In response, Connecticut Progressive bloggers are joining together to raise money for Chris Murphy and Jim Himes.  While we may not have the deep pockets necessary to compete with a $1000 a head fundraiser, we do have the people-power to send the message that a President Bush fundraiser will activate our base and add money to the coffers of our candidates!  Click here to donate!  $100, $50, $25, or even $5 will help send the message that President Bush is a liability in 2008.

While President Bush's visit will give the failingCappiello campaign some additional money, and provide Chris Shays with a chance to spend a little time with his buddy,  we just can’t let this happen unanswered. That’s why we’re joining together in an effort to raise 250 additional contributions for Jim and for Chris (Murphy) over the weekend.

There are more of us than there are of them. Help us prove it, and send the message that Republican congressional candidates and congressman can’t profit by toeing the Bush line.

Click here to donate to Jim Himes and Chris Murphy, and to say no thanks to President Bush!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
