Twelve Years of Deep Insights and Sodomy Jokes: The Rude Pundit's Biennial Fundraising Extravaganza

Yep, yep, yep, we're coming up on the 12th anniversary of this here local stop on the bloggery subway. Some of you have been along for the ride from the beginning. Some of you have just gotten on at the last station. Most of you probably think this train metaphor has already been beaten into the ground.

Every other year, the Rude Pundit holds a little fundraiser, just a chance to show some love to inspire him to keep going on this lonely, brain-melting task. Mostly, he just wants more liquor and a new computer. So, good people of Left Blogsylvania, he is asking you to toss a buck or two into the open saxophone case on the floor. Or, you know, just click on the PayPal link here or on the side:

You can even use a credit card, if you want.

Bonus fundraising goal: If you're a fan of Stephanie Miller, on whose radio show the Rude Pundit appears most Monday mornings, you know that Steph has a weekly, uncensored podcast, where the likes of Margaret Cho and Lily Tomlin have appeared recently. It's sitting around, drinking, and getting filthy, filthy, filthy. The Rude Pundit has been invited to come out to Los Angeles and take part. But budgets are thin for radio these days. So your contribution will also go to paying for his flight out there to hang with Steph and the fellas to make friggin' entertaining pod magic.

Or, you know, just donate so he can keep the whiskey and the words on whiskey flowing.

Finally, as is the way on these fundraisers, the Rude Pundit is opening the floor for questions. Feel free to ask away at the email address on the upper right corner. Political, personal, whatever. He'll answer one or two a day. And, no, you don't need to donate to ask a question because the Rude Pundit may be a dick, but he's a not an asshole.
