    Why would Team Red be spending so much more per spot than our side?  I know that the rules give official campaign ads a lower rate than outside ads, but this sounds as if the official Romney ads are being bought high.

    But let's probe the Banana Republican mind.  Do they really expect Romney to win?  What if they don't?  In that case it could be a Bialystock & Bloom campaign:  The goal is to raise money and keep some of it while failing.  So maybe somebody is getting a commission on the ad buys (ad agencies normally get a percentage), so high-priced buys pay more.  

    Rmoney has always been about finding a way to make money out of failure.  Maybe his campaign is just another Bain-style scam.
