Dear Friend,Really, how can a conservative start the day, or get through it, without having read Morning Jolt, Jim Geraghty's breakfast-time tour-de-force? Technically, MJ is not part of NRO, but Jim kindly offers chunks of it in The Corner and, when appropriate, as articles. So, that said, Jim IS most definitely part of NRO, and a darned big part of it at that. Pick a reason: his ace reporting, his even ace-ier political analysis, his noon-time podcast homage to the (hic!) good old days, Three Martini Lunch. So let's put a period on NR's end-of-the-year Webathon, and our little experiment in the Top 10 reasons you should support your favorite conservative website, by designating Jim Geraghty (who does a terrific people's eyebrow!), as Reason #1.
Of course, we would be amiss if we did not interrupt this commercial with a commercial for Jim's acclaimed new book, Heavy Lifting: Grow Up, Get a Job, Raise a Family, and Other Manly Advice-Raise-Family-Advice.
And we would be amiss if we did not tell the truth: We dedicated the final 10 days of 2015 to raising $25,000 to fund a part of NRO's critical Social Media Outreach Project. Those funds will afford us the means to bring NR's all-important conservative wisdom to hundreds of thousands more Americans in 2016. Well, we've surpassed our goal: Nearly 500 NRO fans, God bless them all, have donated over $26,000 towards this project.
But if we may: The $25,000 goal was arbitrary as heck. Frankly, we could use ten times that amount. But being practical, let's now up it to $30,000, which we are fast approaching. If we make the 30 grand, great -- and we'll treat it as an affirmation of your gratitude for the Morning Jolt.
We hope Jim won't be crushed if we don't hit it. And we hope you won't be crushed in 2016 if NR has to pull its punches because we lack enough support to keep us pumping out the fire-hose of high-quantity / top-quality content that is NRO's hallmark, and the reason for its influence and consequence.
If you haven't yet given to the end-of-the-year Webathon, if you love NRO, if you live on NRO, now is the time for you to step up and help. How about $25, $50, $100? Even a sawbuck?! Come on -- you can do that!
Whatever you do, you can accomplish that right here, right now.
We knew you would!
On behalf of all my colleagues, I thank you for your abiding love of NR, and wish you a happy and a healthy New Year, and the blessings of God on you and yours, and on this great country of ours, and on all America means to all that is good for His Creation.
With deep gratitude,
