Robert Stacy McCain is "our guy on the ground" at breaking news stories; he is the reporter who represents the conservative blogosphere. During the elections this week, he traveled hundreds of miles in a rental car to cover the Doug Hoffman effort; ate cheeseburgers in his car while traveling between sites; poached wifi connections and continental breakfasts from various hotels; and wore out a lot of shoeleather in order to be our eyes at the scene.
McCain is a good guy and I am honored to call him friend. Please give generously to his tip jar to help him cover his expenses (rental cars, gas and cheeseburgers don't grow on trees, ya know).
I have been largely unemployed for four months, yet I still gave Stacy ten bucks this morning. I will give more once I am back to work. Give him $2 or $5 or more if you can. He's worth that, and a lot more.
Thanks Stacy, for all you do.
