    worlds, or even election outcomes with respect to money. Yes, Romney failed, Rove failed, and homophobes failed.

    But Gates/Bezos/Walton money pushed through a charter school referendum in WA, the wealthy have to be happy about the Californication of WA's legislature with a succesful supermajority for revenue bills referendum also in WA, and the Koch brothers retained control of their midwestern subsidiary: Walker is still governor, and both house of the legislature are GOP controlled.

    There remains a lot of damage to be done with just those three outcomes, and I doubt that going around the nation, those are the only cases where government of, by and for the wealthy exists. Not to mention the big money that put a lot of Democrats in office.

    In Soviet Russia, you rob bank. In America, bank robs you.

      Lost the House and Senate due to the Koch bros. It's the first change in party control since Reconstruction. My only hope is that they over-reach and get trounced in '14 and '16.

      There's some evidence already that their hubris is going to do them in. They wanted to ignore the rules and swear in a new majority leader while some contests were still being challenged.
