Contest Crazy McCain Excludes Undecideds From Latest Prize

McCain is getting a little carried away with these contest ideas. First, he offered $300 million to someone to come up with a better electric car battery (and threw in a Clean Car Challenge). Now, you can win a ride on the Straight Talk Express.

The campaign says:

Some of my favorite memories of the campaign so far are of riding on the Straight Talk Express across this great country, enjoying unscripted, spirited conversation about the issues with members of the press and other passengers.

Our last "Ride the Bus" contest was such a success, we've decided to launch it again. As a token of my appreciation for your financial support, any donation you make between today and next Monday at midnight, will qualify you to win a seat aboard the Straight Talk Express. I hope you'll consider joining me by making a donation right away.

McCain just doesn't want spirited discussions with Obama or undecideds. According to the "official rules":
The Contest is limited to legal residents of the U.S., who are at least 18 years of age, and who support the presidential campaign of John McCain.
The other problem with this contest is that it's sold as: donate money, and you can win! However, you don't have to contribute to participate (that wouldn't be legal). According to the McCain website:
... Making a contribution will not improve your chances of winning.
If you want to enter and try and win a ride, without contributing, just send an email to and include your name, address and phone number. You have until 11:59pm June 30th to enter. Good Luck!
