Tactics and Substance in the 2004 Elections GoogleNews: Howard Dean

Thanks to 'sockeye' at Daily Kos for this heads-up:

Cancel Your MBNA cards
MBNA, the Delaware-based credit card bank, donated nearly a quarter of a million dollars to the Bush campaign last time around, more than any other company...

CEO Charles Cawley is one of Bush's notorious Pioneers.

With the help of Google, you should be able to find plenty more reasons why MBNA is not a company that deserves the support of progressives and other Bush opponents...

I would like to call on bloggers and anyone else in the progressive web community to urge anyone who cares about what happens in November, to cancel their MBNA accounts if they have any, and to tell MBNA why they are doing so -- because of the company's financial support of the Bush administration.
My alma mater issues a card via MBNA. I think I'll give them a call...

Does this count as irony? All my donations to Dean were on my MBNA Platinum...

I had remembered reading this elsewhere - but soon forgot from where. My alma mater issues a card via MBNA as well. I'll be transferring my remaining balance as well as informing Carnegie Mellon Univ. as to my reasons. Thanks for the info.
