If you’re reading this, you probably already like NRO. You may have even given in the past, and for that, we owe you a drink of your choice when we next meet.
The first two years of Obama’s presidency have been a rough ride for a lot of folks, and if you’re like most Americans, you probably have a little less disposable income than you did during those allegedly awful Bush years. (They look like a comparative Golden Age these days, huh?) You probably donated a spare organ or two to help out the Republican candidate of your choice.
But the good news is, throughout the roller-coaster ride that these past few years have been, if you’ve had a web connection, you’ve had NRO. Any time, day or night, anywhere, you can check in on the Corner with all your favorites. These days NRO covers more territory and topics than ever before — keeping up with global warming on Planet Gore, tracking the big judicial fights on Bench Memos, seeking economic wisdom from Larry Kudlow, gasping at the debt and deficit news at Exchequer. You’ve been able to listen to the podcasts and watch the increasingly numerous videos. And hopefully, sometime during this election season, the Campaign Spot and its Voltron-like companion, Battle ’10, scratched your itch for the inside word, some poll numbers, and an informed outlook on the midterms. There are a lot of fine conservative sites out there, but nobody else covers the depth and breadth that we do.
The whole thing takes money. Servers. Graphics and illustrators. [Cough.] Staff. A while back the editors of NR and NRO talked about “squeezing everything we can out of what we’ve got,” and I think the proof is there on the page and on the screen.
So if you can spare some change to keep the lights on, the servers humming, the staff fed, and the information flowing, please do. Oh, and you’ll probably want to subscribe to the magazine if you don’t already, or give a gift subscription. Because none of this happens without you.
Don’t make me break out the baby pictures.
