Well, what do you think, television and direct mail?

What, no t-shirts? I suppose we’ll have to ask Rex Sinquefield if he’s got any to spare. Nah, on second thought, I don’t think he’d contribute.

If the renewal of the earnings tax passes everyone better save their signs because they’ll have to do it all over again in five years. They can thank Rex Sinquefield for that, too.
