I'm Not the Only Mad Monkeyface

Hah, Dan Savage. What a sassy bastard. I love the guy.
Dan Savage, if you don't know him, writes a sex column for alternative weeklies. He's brash and provocative and truthy and — well, unimpeachable.
And, once again, today he had me gasping with laughter.
As a result of a game of e-mail tag (try setting up a restaurant date for three households in fewer than six tries), one of our intended party, Jeanne of World on a Plate, tossed in this Easter egg for me: ITMFA.
You know. "Impeach the — um — Monkeyface Already." (Psst. Kids: Don't go check it out.)
Dan has been selling ITMFA merchandise and donating all his profits to the ACLU since only the end of last month, and he's already raised over $10,000.
I'm mad and I'm happy.

Hah! Dan Savage rawks. I read The Stranger online (much better way to keep up with the goings-on in Seattle than reading the P.I. or The Times)and his column is brilliant. He started ITMFA last month and it's been kicking butt ever since. I really need to order me a t-shirt.

Yeah, Cranky's all over me to get some stuff. Gosh, it's so cheap, and yet he's raised all this money?

Sweet. Methinks I might need some of that stuff.

On the other hand, I might be contributing the funds over here instead. I love that the Dem candidate has cottoned to the fact that he has no name recognition, so he's playing it where it lies. :-)

Gotta love Dan Savage. And a t-shirt like that would be ever so appropriate here in Berserkley.
