But Which Way Will Melville Go?

posted by on February 21 at 12:02 PM

Here, via the fabulous Maud Newton (whose website still looks as though it was designed by a blind man from 1986) is a list of popular authors and their contributions to the candidates.

I’m not at all surprised by Daniel Handler giving money to Obama, or Tim (Left Behind) Lahaye donating to Huckabee, but David Mamet’s 4,600 dollars to Chris Dodd seems bizarre, as does Walter Mosley giving as much as he can to Clinton and that fucker Dean Koontz giving $4,600 to Romney and $2,300 to Fred Thompson makes me hate him even more, which I didn’t even think was possible.

Why would Jonathan Safran Foer donate $1108 dollars to Obama? Does that number mean something?

Paul Constant, I like Slog so much more since you joined the staff.

Melville was a Giuliani kind of guy, I think. Moody. Crazy.

@2: Right. Thanks.

I would like to join the choir of praise and say that Paul Constant has made Slog a much more enjoyable place.
