You would think that Sarah Palin’s main contribution would be to fire up the Religious Conservative base. While her selection has definitely done that, an unforeseen side effect is that it has also been a boom for Planned Parenthood.
A three-week-old Internet campaign is asking abortion-rights activists to send donations to Planned Parenthood in honor of the Alaska governor.[snip]
Katie Groke Ellis, field manager for the Planned Parenthood of the Rockies Action Fund, predicts that the five-state chapter of the group alone could draw $100,000 in donations.
And the irony continues with Planned Parenthood’s policy of sending thank you cards.
Planned Parenthood sends a handwritten thank-you card to the donor. If a donation is made in someone’s name, he or she gets one, too.
In this case, the Palin cards will go to Republican presidential nominee John McCain’s national headquarters.
