Hell to Pay bug
Welcome to this week's extra special edition of Hell to Pay. We're raising money for Daily Kos-endorsed women candidates for the House and Senate, because it's time to send more, better women to Congress to kick some ass, take some names, fight back against the Republican War on Women—and maybe even shrink some penises with their feminism.

This week, we're going to let Ann Romney, Mitt's official chief adviser on lady things, do the talking. Because when it comes to women, she's had an awful lot to say. And we're going to make her pay for it.

Women, you need to wake up. Women have to ask themselves who's going to have and be there for you. I can promise you, I know, that Mitt will be there for you. He will stand up for you, he will hear your voices.
You want Ann Romney telling you to "wake up" and vote for the party that wants to take your rights away from you? The party that tells us there's no War on Women, when we've watched them fight to take away our health care, defund our programs to combat domestic violence, and block bills to ensure equal pay for equal work? Goal Thermometer

Then it's payback time. Let's make her pay. Let's make them pay. Name your favorite anti-woman bill Republicans tried to pass since they took over. Name your favorite quotes. Name your favorites offenses. And open up those wallets. Because now, it's payback time. And payback? It's one hell of an unladylike, penis-shrinking bitch.

And it's time to shrink their numbers in Congress. Women are 51 percent of the country, but only 17 percent of Congress. So let's get 51 donors to step up and show that we're the majority, we're mad as hell, and we're ready to make them pay for it.

Please give $3 to each of our Daily Kos-endorsed women candidates for the House and Senate.

4:09 PM PT: And just look at Ann's latest:

Asked what her primary worry would be should her husband succeed in defeating President Obama on Nov. 6, Mrs. Romney replied, "You know, I think my biggest concern, obviously, would just be for his mental well-being."
Let's give her something else to be concerned about, eh?

4:12 PM PT: We've met our goal of 51 donations, but I know we can do better. Let's double it!

4:23 PM PT: middleagedhousewife has the right idea:

Ha! I just donated. That felt awesome! I highly recommend all of You People donate!

My donation was for Todd Akin and his female bodies have a "way to shut that whole thing down" BS.

So why are YOU donating?

4:34 PM PT: We're at 71 donations. That's close to the $.77 we make for every dollar a man makes. Can we make it to 77 donations?

4:36 PM PT: Damn, y'all are good. That didn't take long. Now let's make it to 100.

4:43 PM PT: skod just split $33 among all the candidates. I matched that donation. Anyone else care to join in the matching fun?

4:51 PM PT: Come on, we're almost there. Don't make me beg. Or shrink some penises with my feminism.

5:00 PM PT: Just four more donations until we reach our goal for the night. Come on, who's in?

5:07 PM PT: Clearly, y'all are in a penis-shrinking mood. Who else wants to use their feminism for good? Come on, don't be shy.

5:17 PM PT: Here's a good reminder from Melanie in IA:

"There never will be complete equality until women themselves help to make laws and elect lawmakers." ~ Susan B. Anothony
Melanie gave. Did you?

5:35 PM PT: I see everyone's in a payback mood. Come on, what else you got?

5:59 PM PT: Anyone else feel like a whole bunch of penises got shrunk tonight? Good. But we're not done yet. So meet me back here at 9 AM PT tomorrow, and we'll see if we can shrink some more. 'Cause it's payback weekend, and payback? It's a bitch.

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.
