Stacy McCain on the Road Again, Hit his Tip Jar

One of the draw­backs of depend­ing on a reg­u­lar full time job for income and host­ing the Catholic Radio show Your Prayer Inten­tions (inci­den­tally the event Sat­ur­day went very well) is that the flex­i­bil­ity I once had to just go off and do a road trip to cover con­gres­sional elec­tions is pretty much gone for me.

For­tu­nately Stacy McCain’s full time job IS exactly this thing and he is a bit more dar­ing in terms of head­ing off to cover events and trust­ing the read­er­ship to pay the bills, both at home and for the trip where he is talk­ing about some unpleas­ant truths:

Imag­ine a House Repub­li­can can­di­date fac­ing a Demo­c­rat oppo­nent who is rais­ing money at the pace of a mil­lion dol­lars a month on aver­age. Accord­ing to Mother Jones, Act­Blue has “directed more than $1 bil­lion to Demo­c­ra­tic can­di­dates this cycle.” One bil­lion dollars.

Ques­tion: While Paul Ryan and other GOP lead­ers were pout­ing over Trump’s elec­tion, what were they doing to help elect Repub­li­cans to Con­gress? What did they do to help counter the Democ­rats’ billion-​dollar online money machine? Isn’t it fair for con­ser­v­a­tive vot­ers to sus­pect that Ryan and other mem­bers of the Repub­li­can estab­lish­ment essen­tially decided to take their ball and go home, because they were but­thurt that their favorite can­di­dates didn’t win the GOP nomination?

I admit the road trips with Stacy are some­thing to be expe­ri­enced but they are, as he explains here, only made pos­si­ble by folks like you:

As much as I’d like to tell you where I’ll be this evening, I can’t, and I also can’t tell you why I can’t tell you, but by 3 p.m. today I hope to be on the road, and if y’all want to kick in a lit­tle — gaso­line is $2.67 a gal­lon, cig­a­rettes are about $6 a pack — it would help keep my wife happy. Because the Five Most Impor­tant Words in the Eng­lish Lan­guage are:

HIT THE FREAK­ING TIP JAR!

Or to put it another way, you can, free of charge watch the MSM and/​or for the price of cable watch CNN or MSNBC etc. Or you can for a few dol­lars more sup­port first hand report­ing from an expe­ri­enced reporter who is going to tell you what is hap­pen­ing even if it’s some­thing not to your liking.

I think it’s an easy choice myself.

One of the drawbacks of depending on a regular full time job for income and hosting the Catholic Radio show Your Prayer Intentions (incidentally the event Saturday went very well) is that the flexibility I once had to just go off and do a road trip to cover congressional elections is pretty much gone for me.

Fortunately Stacy McCain’s full time job IS exactly this thing and he is a bit more daring in terms of heading off to cover events and trusting the readership to pay the bills, both at home and for the trip where he is talking about some unpleasant truths:

Imagine a House Republican candidate facing a Democrat opponent who is raising money at the pace of a million dollars a month on average. According to Mother Jones, ActBlue has “directed more than $1 billion to Democratic candidates this cycle.” One billion dollars.

Question: While Paul Ryan and other GOP leaders were pouting over Trump’s election, what were they doing to help elect Republicans to Congress? What did they do to help counter the Democrats’ billion-dollar online money machine? Isn’t it fair for conservative voters to suspect that Ryan and other members of the Republican establishment essentially decided to take their ball and go home, because they were butthurt that their favorite candidates didn’t win the GOP nomination?

I admit the road trips with Stacy are something to be experienced but they are, as he explains here, only made possible by folks like you:

As much as I’d like to tell you where I’ll be this evening, I can’t, and I also can’t tell you why I can’t tell you, but by 3 p.m. today I hope to be on the road, and if y’all want to kick in a little — gasoline is $2.67 a gallon, cigarettes are about $6 a pack — it would help keep my wife happy. Because the Five Most Important Words in the English Language are:

HIT THE FREAKING TIP JAR!

Or to put it another way, you can, free of charge watch the MSM and/or for the price of cable watch CNN or MSNBC etc.  Or you can for a few dollars more support first hand reporting from an experienced reporter who is going to tell you what is happening even if it’s something not to your liking.

I think it’s an easy choice myself.
