  1. 30 – 40 cars in the parking lot, how many were there to give blood ?

    Doesn’t look like many from the pictures.

    Perhaps if they gave a free copy of Hillary’s new book as an incentive ….

  2. If the blood comes from Democrats, I hope it gets screened extra thoroughly for communicable diseases.

  3. Nice to see Democrats giving blood instead of sucking it.

  4. Don’t worry; all blood is screened for HIV now.

    Even if none of it gets used, it was nice for the Dems to give for once.
