See Those Ads

See those ads over on the right side of the page? Three of these are for campaigns that are very important. Even if you can only donate $5 it will help them fight the Right. Nothing is more important. And if they have a code to use — the Minnesota ad wants you to add 12 cents if you came from Seeing the Forest — please do.

We’re accomplishing two things here. First, we are using the Internet to reach many small donors to counter the Right’s corporate money. Second, we are starting to show that weblogs matter. Billmon wrote the other day about weblogs being the many small, furry creatures running around swiftly dodging the dinosaurs’ feet. The dinosaurs are the newspaper “conventional wisdom” pundits like George Will.

Even $5 makes a big difference, because there are a lot of weblog readers.
