Normally when I think of Kansas politics I think of things like evolution being banned in schools
or those silly stickers they tried, but this is a refreshing change; an interesting and innovative use of the internet
by a USian running for the Kansas state legislature and raising funds through an XKCD
style webcomic. It's attracting reasonable coverage
in the US media, including a fairly favourable write up in the LA Times
, and he's getting record numbers of donations.
The nature of US politics makes it very different to directly translate fundraising techniques to the UK, even if it's appropriate, our focus on parties within a multi-party polity is very different to their focus on individuals within a two-party system (even if in most districts we have an effective two-party system anyway, gotta love Duverger
), but this sort of thing is certainly going to appeal to the sort of demographic that should be voting Lib Dem anyway—wonder if anyone could come up with a more generalised UK version with a similar sort of message?
