Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Contrary to what some in media circles would have us believe, DNC chair Howard Dean is doing pretty well at fundraising, a primary function of the job.

Online donations have brought in five times as much money as the party raised online in 2003 — the last time the party was raising money in a non-election year.

Under new chairman Howard Dean, the Democrats have raised more than $1 million a week from about 600,000 donations. The Democrats' online effort included a monthly giving program called "Democracy Bonds" with about 15,000 donors signed up.

You can't argue with results.

Is it Dean though? Or is it just a fresh face jump starts the energy of hope in the Dems again? With Bush pissing more than half the nation off recently it seems, it's going to be easier for donations to flow in from all over (Dems, Ind., and angry Rep.)

It's both I think. The grassroots has been energized by Dean, and what's going on with donations kind of mirrors what happened during his presidential race.
