If anyone asks you about the origins of Give Money To Al’s Campaign Day, you could tell them about the mythical Give Money To Al’s Campaign Tree, which grew tall enough to withstand even the axe of a giant lumberjack who, for the purposes of this story, looked a lot like Karl Rove.
Or you could just tell them that we’re going to need a lot of people to stand together to win this thing -- and that this is the first big test of our strength.
