Help AlterNet continue to expose the facts on Palin!

As the 2008 election comes down to the wire, AlterNet is operating at full throttle. We are covering it all, from the sleaze to the inspiration, from voter suppression to the shocking nomination of Sarah Palin. In fact, we've probably organized more information on this woman than anywhere else on the web. And in the past two months, over 3 million people have come to AlterNet to read about the pratfalls and far-right ideas of McCain's VP choice.

Now is the home stretch. But because of the global financial meltdown, our budget is quickly shrinking just as we need to be going all out. Will you help us finish the year with a bang?

We could really use your support.

Much Thanks,

Don Hazen, Executive Editor
