Oliver Willis is an Idiot

I could add substantive arguments to my name-calling, but he'd ignore them anyway. (Don't miss the comments, in which Dave Weigel apparently dies of Hepatitis A or E.)

From your blog: "Willis stated previously that "over 21,000 individuals contributed to the Dean campaign....George W. Bush raised money from 119,213 donors during the 2000 campaign. Some of those were corporate, but at least 101,301 people gave personal donations of $200 or less"

So far, Dean has 70,000 donors so far, 48,000 of whom are first time donors this past quarter. And that nice number will doubtless go up.

Not bad for a guy who was supposedly near the back of the Democratic pack, eh?

Huh? Those quotes are from Dave Weigel's blog, not mine. Dave and I have both questioned the Dean hype, though for the record I do think Dean has a serious shot at the nomination-- which is to say that Bush has a serious shot at a landslide.
