The cost of change is, it turns out, astronomical — especially when the moneyed guarantors of the status quo will spare no expense to ensure that the more things try to change, the more they stay the same. Obama needs your help. In the first two weeks of October, the Obama campaign spent $105 million, while only raising $35 million during that same period, a precipitous drop from the pace of campaign donations in September. With just 10 days left in the campaign, every dollar counts. Phawker has been running a de facto fundraiser with Bruce Springsteen fans, offering a hi-res JPEG of the above Alex Fine poster (which can be printed out poster-size) in exchange for an on-your-honor donation of $15 to the Obama campaign, which you can do by CLICKING HERE. We cannot check that everyone who promised to donate $15 did so, but we are fairly certain we can trust the better angels of Bruce Springsteen fans, and to date this effort has raised more than $1,000 for change.This offer is still good, and more important than ever. Simply CLICK HERE to make a $15 donation to the Obama campaign, and then send us an email at email@example.com with the words BOSS FANS FOR CHANGE, and we will send you a poster-sized JPEG of this handsome commemorative poster of Springsteen’s historic Philadelphia concert for change.

ASSOCIATED PRESS: WASHINGTON – Barack Obama and John McCain enter the final days of the presidential campaign amid dwindling cash reserves, with Obama hindered by a drop in fund-raising and McCain restrained by spending limits. Democrat Obama spent more than $105 million during the first two weeks of October, according to new campaign finance reports, and reported raising only $36 million during that period, about half his pace in September when he brought in a record $150 million. Obama had nearly $66 million in the bank as of Oct. 15, and the Democratic National Committee and a joint Obama-party victory fund had another $31 million combined. MORE
