Daily Kos is asking for cash, too:
This site is too large, and sucks up way too much bandwidth. So I have to go solo.
I asked for help yesterday to pay for a new server, and the response has been spectacular. I’ve raised nearly $1,000. The server will cost about $1,000 (maybe a few hundred more if I decide to buy something with a bit more oomph), my rackspace and bandwidth costs for the first month will push the costs closer to around $1,600. This stuff ain’t cheap…
Wowie. Kos is #2 on TTLB at the moment; I’ve never been higher than #58. It costs me about $10 a month. Amazing what a few slots can do!

Update: Kos responds to a querry in PoliBlog comments that it is his massive comments threads that eat up much of his bandwidth. Weird.
