Sue Lowden, the leading Republican candidate from Nevada running to oppose Harry Reid for his United States Senate seat, famously suggested (twice) that barter should be on the table in any discussion about health care reform. More specifically, she seemed to yearn for the "good ol' days" when doctors accepted chickens in lieu of cash payment.
My friend JC Christian, Patriot, made a good point: if chickens are good enough for doctors, they should be good enough for campaign donations.
I decided to test his theory.
Turns out it didn't work out so well. When I tried to present the candidate with a couple of Cornish Hens in exchange for entry to her Washington D.C. fundraiser, I found myself pushed out the door and told I was unwelcome at the "closed event."
