Today is an exciting day on the Corner, the best National Review blog on the Internet, period. Not only is the fat Mexican secretary Jonah Goldberg yelling at slummy Kathleen Parker for trying to sneak into the Sexy Obama Dance Parties with her Gorilla God-hating cigarette dildo columns, but Parker’s ex-BFF, Kathryn Jean Lopez — who No Longer Reads Wonkette — has been begging National Review‘s readers for money in at least 20 million posts for the last two days. Donate, people!
- Do You Have a Few Minutes? [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
NRO needs your help. Would you kindly consider the request? Read here.

- Oh dear [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
Our first donation to the 2008 fundraising drive included a request for a “BSG day.” We’ve been too close to here before. Remember Star Trek Weekend?
- Re: Oh Dear [Jonah Goldberg]
Kathryn, Just for the record, I snuck a Trek reference into a recent post. I figured with at dawn of pledge drive you wouldn’t risk chastising me.
- Cruising [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
I’m getting a number of e-mails from people who complain that we have some nerve asking for money after spending on a cruise last week. I totally understand how that looks bad. But here’s what you need to know: The reason we do these cruises is they bring in money. It’s another fundraiser. And rather than tanning in the Bahamas, we do work — panels, interviews, dinner, lunch, and other discussions. I tell you that not to whine — its a nice thing to work with a little sun in the cabin window vs. the usual Lexington Avenue noise. But we don’t do these as staff vacation perks. The time spent is an investment in the conservative future — because it supports NR and because real conversations happen, with policymakers, with young people, with supporters.
And like I said in my pitch today, National Review in all its forms has always and I suspect will always, rely on readers. Thank you again.

- Investing in the future of NRO — why [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
From a $100 donor:
“Thank you, and keep up the good work!
Your writers and articles are excellent – and necessary in order to counteract the liberal agenda of the Obama administration and most of the media. So many of my family and friends are worried – we look to you for support”
Please consider supporting nro. More here.

- Invest in NRO for Lunch [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
Just an idea . . . Because ideas have consequences and all . . .

- Investing in NRO, Investing in the Future [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
From a donor:
Keep up the good work.
What stings about this election is that we did it to ourselves. We sent a knife (McCain campaign) to a gunfight (Obama campaign).
Do the powers that be in the GOP really think that diluting the conservative message of Ronald Reagan is a good strategy?
Anyway, NRO is a light in the darkness.
Give here. Thank you!

- Supporting NRO [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
I do wish you would have announced the fund raiser sooner. The day after the election, I knew that NRO would be out front leading the charge and I wanted to help out where I could so I subscribed to the magazine after letting my sub expire several years ago. I have been reading NRO daily and have been feeling guilty about the free riding. Now I’m tapped out, having hidden all my extra money from the pending tax increases!
Anyway, I truly do appreciate the work that the entire team does and look forward to reading the magazine again – although I barely have time to keep up with NRO.
Me: thank you! But subscribing is helpful! You get NRODT and NRODT supports NRO! So subscribe to the print magazine! Subscribe to the digital version of the print magazine! Give U.S. Dollars straight to NRO’s budget!
