  •  Liberal discomfort with money (0+ / 0-)

    This diary strikes me as a symptom of liberal discomfort with all things monetary--- liberals are uncomfortable with making money and they're uncomfortable talking about it. Heck, the awkwardness of the ads can probably be blamed on the fact that the liberal ad agency has a hard time fine-tuning a message that involves fundraising.

    I wish I had a good answer here. I don't think it's wrong for Grayson to be making a full court press to raise money, but maybe his ad staff needs to learn how to be less awkward about it. And I think liberals in general need to be more comfortable with talking about and thinking about money and how it can be used to serve our goals.

      I just made a point about the influence of money in politics and how it made me feel. Plain and simple.
