After the Republican National Convention, the Republican Party raked in $1 million. But an email campaign last week also helped Planned Parenthood raise more than $800,000 by mentioning Palin’s name. The effort had also been pushed out by various feminist blogs. It shows that charismatic and polarizing politicians have huge capacities for fundraising efforts on both the left and the right. Interestingly enough, the New York Times’ Caucus blog ended its post about the fundraising effort with, “Planned Parenthood said it would begin mailing the thank-you cards next week. The McCain campaign declined to comment."
