The Strib Reads Power Line

On Friday, we pointed out that an upcoming “Cabaret for Kerry” fundraiser categorized its ticket prices as follows:

TROUBLED: $50+
ANGRY: $100+
LIVID: $200+
FURIOUS: $400+
MAD AS HELL: $500+
BALLISTIC: $1000+

We concluded:

Democrats seem to think it is a good idea to present themselves to the public as the party that has gone nuts…But I seriously doubt that a party that defines itself by hate and anger can command the support of a majority of Americans.

Saturday morning, the Minneapolis Star Tribune followed up on our story in an article titled “Mad money: Fury helps fund Kerry’s effort.” The Strib credited us with coming up with the story:

A conservative political Web log, Powerline, posted the group’s ticket categories Friday and opined that it was doubtful “a party that defines itself by hate and anger can command the support of a majority of Americans.”

A Democratic activist involved in the fundraiser responded that “We just decided we wanted to do something a little bit funny.” We were pleased to read that no one was “ballistic” enough to give Kerry $1,000.
If the Strib keeps reading Power Line, its readers will no doubt be better informed.
