"The Charity Gap"

Don't miss this very interesting post by Ed Morrissey.

Although they made less money than Senator Biden, in each of the last two years Sarah and Todd Palin's charitable donations nearly matched or exceeded what Biden gave to charity over the last eight years combined.

" 2006, they donated $4,880 to charity, and in 2007, they donated $3,325. By contrast, Biden (D-Del.)...has donated a total of $3,690 since 1998 despite his higher Senate salary."

As Morrissey notes, in this campaign both Obama and Biden have stressed the importance of taking care of others. It appears, however, that for the most part they only want to do it with other people's money.
