I’ll just post this one “as is” and note only, with great relief, that Tom is once again acting de facto campaign manager, aka HMFIC, which totally gets me off the hook. Whew!

The good news: Steve Kubby’s presidential campaign is “in the black.” It has money in the bank.

The bad news: Almost all of that money was raised for, and donated by people expecting it to be used for, a specific purpose — producing the campaign’s first television commercial — and we’re not touching it for any other purpose.

The worse news: The Oregon Libertarian Party’s state convention at Sunriver Resort (near Bend) is this weekend.

That last bit may not sound like bad news, and in the normal course of things it wouldn’t be. But here’s how it is:

Steve Kubby’s car is an older vehicle that we’d really rather not see him driving over mountain passes in March. As a matter of fact, we’d really rather not see him driving over mountain passes at all in March.

Right now, that looks like it’s the only way he’s going to get to Oregon … and he is going to get to Oregon if I have to throw him over my shoulders and carry him. That’s something you don’t want to see.

We’d prefer to rent a more suitable vehicle — or, better yet, put him on a plane.

I’m going to explain why you should help us do that in a minute, but first I’m going to issue my little “matching challenge.”

I just contributed $10 to the Kubby campaign. That may not sound like much to you. If it doesn’t, good — go ahead and get out your credit card, because I’m asking you to kick in a picture of Al Hamilton, too.
