Peru Rail

A Peru Rail Station

I would love to take a long trip through South America. I loved The Motorcycle Diaries and Paul Theroux's The Old Patagonia Express.

Since I can't right now, I thought I'd take a look at the train which runs through the Andes to Macchu Picchu.

Thanks to Mediaite for alerting me to this, and Immoral Majority for grabbing it. Nice save there PBO!

(PLEASE NOTE: Our PayPal button in the right side bar has disappeared. We're working on it.)

Every so often, Paddy and I do something here at TPC that we don't like doing: We reluctantly pass the hat for donations, a necessary evil. We need to raise funds so we don’t have to worry about expenses for the next three months, both for site upkeep and our own mounting bills.

We post requests here and we tweet and we beg and we hope. Trust us, there's no money in blogging (ads give us VERY little), so, unfortunately, this is what we have to do, and we so appreciate the generosity of those who are able to help out.

We also totally understand if you can't. And our fundraising goal is way, way less than nearly every site we know of, because we know our readers are not wealthy. Like you, we're literally scraping by.

To those who are able, please remember, without donations, we have no Political Carnival. We have no way to fight for you, for our principles, or just to make you laugh from time to time. Nor do we have any way to upgrade, pay for servers and other equipment needed to bring you breaking news, commentary and snarkitude.

So please indulge us, please understand that we truly do not like asking, we have no other way to pay for necessities, and unlike Ann Romney, we have no choice.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That said, here's how to donate:

Donate to The Political Carnival using WePay

PLEASE NOTE: TO USE PAYPAL, CLICK ON CHIP-IN WIDGET

You can donate at any time by using the PayPal donate buttons in the sidebar (now with requested WePay!), or if you need a snail mail addy, feel free to email thepoliticalcarnival@gmail.com.

In addition, if anyone wants to sponsor us for three months with an ad in the sidebar, please email Paddy. Since it’s an election year, any ad will be getting increased views.

BONUS! We’re doing something special this time around and giving away two of our brand spankin’ new TPC t-shirts to random donors! We’ll draw names out of the proverbial hat and let you know. (You can’t even buy these yet.)

So, to be the one of the first IN THE WORLD to sport your Political Carnival t-shirt, drop a little coinage in the kitty!

Please never forget that we truly appreciate you guys with or without the donations. Every single day.
