Elizabeth Warren Campaign Contribution

Elizabeth Warren handily outpaced the other contenders in our most recent poll regarding which straight-talking candidate should receive the next Liar! Liar! campaign contribution. President Obama came in a respectable second. Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman received votes as well.

Panderbear contributed $100 to the Warren campaign. That was considerably more than Liar! Liar! ad revenues, but Panderbear believes in putting his money where his mouth is. Thanks to all who voted in our poll and to all who helped generate revenue by clicking on the ads.

  1. Why are there no comments on this blog? You must admit you are making it a little bit hard to comment - you've got 14 votes in your poll.

    At least Elizabeth Warren comes out on top. It shows you the wisdom of crowds. Why is Ron Paul even on this list? And Alan Grayson?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Grayson

    Grayson ran a September 2010, commercial calling Webster a "draft-dodger,"[64] (Webster had received student deferments and a draft classification as medically unfit for service),[65] and a later 30-second commercial calling Webster "Taliban Dan" and warning viewers that "Religious fanatics try to take away our freedom, in Afghanistan, in Iran and right here in Central Florida."[66] Grayson's ads were criticized for editing video mid-sentence to make Webster appear to be saying things he did not say. [67][68] Grayson released a toned-down version without the edited video or Taliban references in early October.[69][70]

    I don't like much of Jon Huntsman says and Barack Obama is not particularly non pandering. he was having great fun with the payroll tax fight.

  2. Maybe you should consider Rick Santorum. He's close to being a non-panderer.

  3. Thanks for your comments. The names included in the Liar! Liar! campaign contribution poll are all the candidates for president with current TQ Ratings above break-even (TQ=1.0), plus a couple of candidates for other offices that have been mentioned in previous posts and have particularly high Truth Quotients. For example, the last time I checked, Alan Grayson had TQ higher than any other politician Panderbears tracks regularly. While Rick Santorum's TQ has increased recently, it is still below flip-of-coin reliability. See the most recent 'Truth Quotient Rankings - Politicos' post for a table of current rankings and a link to the page explaining the TQ methodology. Notice that President Obama's TQ of 1.5 (based on 330 statements) is higher than any other presidential candidate.
