Looks like some of our favorite ‘wingers are set to have their hearts broken by the good folks at BMW Direct.

Yesterday in the New York Post, Michelle Malkin was positively giddy at the “jaw-dropping political miracle [that] may be on the horizon.”

Namely, the challenge to veteran Democratic Rep. John Murtha (D) being mounted by Army reservist William Russell. And she’s so bullish on his chances of ousting Murtha because of the nearly $670,000 he’s raised in the second quarter — a stunningly high total.

Unfortunately for the GOP, Russell appears to be yet another little-known candidate who’s turned over his fundraising to BMW Direct, the best-practices direct mail outfit that pulls back in fees 90% to 95% of the funds they raise for their clients. Andrew Tilghman has the story.
