What the different donors see: What the computer screen sees #1: At a nearby university "Dude, does your dad know you're using his credit card to donate to Obama?" "No way! My old man would never let me hear the end of it." "Doesn't he check his credit card statement?" "No." "Sweet!" What the computer screen sees #2: In a blue state "Obama says I need to have hope." "I believe in Obama." "And the Tooth Fairy." "Yeah, the Tooth Fairy. I love you, Tooth Fairy." "And aliens." "Yeah, I saw an alien once." "The alien told me to vote for Obama." What the computer screen sees #3: At a typical Obama donor's residence "How much did you give that time?" "1000 U.S American dollars." "Yeah, me too." "How many times have you done that?" "Today? That's the 8th time." "My 9th." "But I gave 12 times yesterday." What the computer screen sees #4: At another typical Obama donor's residence "That old Barry. Glad to see he's making a name for himself. His grades in school weren't that great, but he's sure come a long way. He's my hero."
