Slam It, Smoke It, Shoot It!

Speaking of fundraising, The Independence Institute in Colorado has found a pretty rockin' way to do it -- the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Party sounds like one I'd RSVP for. Billed as the "most politically incorrect fundraising event of the year," the day includes a clay pigeon shoot, lunch, cigars and whiskey. And if you can't make it to the event, Independence offers a pretty rockin' T-shirt, here.

In related news, a liberal group in Colorado will hold a fundraiser the same day at the same shooting range. Its members will be given the chance to shake their heads, condescend and issue fake citations to good, law-abiding conservatives. Oh, the finger-wagging fun has just begun! That should bring in plenty of money!

I'll keep my eye out for interesting fundraisers around the conservative movement to mention here. If you're planning one that's a little outside-the-box, let me know at
