  •  Two Questions, really: (6+ / 0-)

    1) Is this Adelson sending a message that anybody who wants his money going forward is going to have to moderate their views significantly to get money from him? Forcing the Republican party to jettison their social conservatives?

    and

    2) WHY THE FUCK DID YOU SPEND A $150 MILLION DOLLARS THIS ELECTION CYCLE IF YOUR VIEWS ARE MORE LEFT-LEANING THAN SOME DEMOCRATS?

      I.  Have.   No.   Idea.

      Just drove the kid to school and got back.  Thought about this the entire hour.  And very little of it makes any sense to me, other than the business theory.  He funded Rs simply to keep his tax rate lower.  He expected a return on investment.

        Adelsohn is too smart to believe the crackpot conspiracy theories about Obama stealing the election -- the next best alternative (that does not involve admitting that the voters have rejected trickle-down-upon-the-peons economics) is to blame GOP woes on the Bible-thumpers (who do in fact bear a large share of the blame, though not all of it).

        On the Internet, nobody knows if you're a dog... but everybody knows if you're a jackass.

      Putting the economics aside, there is another issue of which he cares a great deal about

      ISRAEL

      Seriously, read some of the Pro-Palestinian diaries here and see why he would support Shit Romney and not the Democratic Party.

      Never underestimate stupid. Stupid is how reTHUGlicans win!

      He had a grudge against the Obama administration for investigating him. He also made a top priority of defeated Shelley Berkley for Senate because she was a former employee that he felt had betrayed him.
