The Hell Raiser's Blog - CSPAN as a Fundraising Tool

There has been a lot of media coverage of yesterday's Donald-Nancy-and-Chuck meeting. A number of folks observed that Trump repeatedly interrupted Pelosi, which prompted more than one observer to bemoan the fact that, in general, interruptees are disproportionately women. 
All this prompted me to think about how CSPAN footage can become a great fundraising  tool for women's organizations - especially for women's advocacy organizations. For example, feminist fundraisers could ask folks to pledge $5/$10/$100 for each time that:
- Kamala Harris (or Dianne Feinstein, Amy Klobuchar, et. al) is interrupted during the Judiciary Committee's next hearing,
- Hilary Clinton or other female candidate for elected office is interrupted during a candidates' debate
- someone like Mich McConnell tries to silence someone like Elizabeth Warren during a speech, etc., etc., etc.

The possibilities are endless.
