Cheney Visit Nets $200K for Aderholt

Vice President Dick Cheney appeared in Priceville yesterday to help raise campaign funds for US Rep Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville). Cheney's most prominent remarks centered around the warrantless wiretapping story that's been in the news over the past weeks. Cheney, of course, defended the wiretaps as a necessary element in waging the "war on terror".

Cheney's speech was not as well attended as organizers had hoped. But the VP did help Aderholt raise approximately $200,000 for his currently nonexistent campaign. Individuals had to pony up $250 to attend and another $2,000 to get a photo with the Cheney. Organizers estimated an attendance of 560 people.

No word yet on Cheney's responses to the questions put forward by Alabama Democratic Chair Joe Turnham.

Get that slant out of here. Organizers predicted 500-550 people and they had 560. I was there. The seats were full. The turnout was just fine.

$250 times 560 = $140,000 and the take was $200,000. Seems to me that they made more that they had projected.

Old Joe's questions are just more of the same old tired Democrat talk.

Actually, they were questions that no one in the white house is answering. I think they're pretty bland questions at that. Since you love Cheney so much, why don't you answer them.

According to the AP there were "dozens of empty seats". To me that sounds like lower than expected turnout.

Why didn't the local newstory at least include some of Turnham's questions? They had absolutely no Dem response. Would the Repugnants be happy if they were shut out from a major story?

The real moneymaker for any candidate would be Laura Bush. Let her speak, and the people will come. Cheney is boring.

I undertand they made a fair amount of money at the "lawyer shoot" afterwards. That Cheney is a dead eye shooter.
