The "one charity" argument makes a lot of sense to me: if my best estimate of how much good oxfam will do with my money is substantially greater than the amount of good some other charity will do, why should I give to that other charity when I could be more effective by giving to oxfam? More detailed arguments on this point are also out there:

Update 2013-02-26: I've expanded on this some.
