"Today, September 15, my campaign is launching our newest effort: "15 for 15 Cheddarbomb," says "Feingold" in an e-mail solicitation sent today. "We'll match [Feingold's Republican opponent] Ron Johnson's $15 million with the donations of 15,000 grassroots donors. This is our first-ever 'moneybomb' or as we call it in Wisconsin—a 'Cheddarbomb. Our 'Cheddarbomb' will show that my campaign can match Johnson's $15 million with 15,000 grassroots donations of our own - in a single day."
How might Illinois politicians indigenize their moneybombs? I tried to answer my own question and was stumped—but then again, I am a carpetbagger. Does anyone know of an Illinois slang term for "money" that would be appropriate? Please advise, in the comments.
