Open Thread

by Mary

When you make a donation to a candidate, it's normally because you really like them. But for some, the donation doesn't mean you want to see the guy elected. Wonder why you would give money to someone your really, really didn't like.

Abdullah Makhlouf, the owner of a discount stereo store who is one of Mr. Abdullah’s closest friends, and his wife contributed $9,200.

“He’s like a worse copy than Bush,” Mr. Makhlouf said of Mr. McCain.

When a reporter initially contacted Mr. Makhlouf, he denied giving to the McCain campaign.

After eventually admitting to the donation, Mr. Makhlouf added, “I’m still not going to vote for him.”

Your turn now.
