  •  I don't think it is silly (0+ / 0-)

    to require someone who wants to receive campaign funding from liberal causes to believe strongly (and vote accordingly) in a few basic Democratic values.

    Here in WI we voted in Governor Doyle using union money.  He did nothing for us so when it came time for re-election the unions threw their support for him again anyway.  He won and we got nothing from him.  That opened the door for Walker four years later and the rest is history.

    Republicans have their "silly" litmus tests:  No taxes on the wealthy, no choice, no regulations, no unions - and they are winning on every one of those issues even though those positions hurt the majority of the voters.

    Which is good news for John McCain.
