    If the money they spent actually, you know, stimulated the economy, I'd be all for the 1%ers spending more of it.

    But it looks to me like most of the money ends up in the pocket of the same small group of GOP consultants like Rove himself, the media brokers, the people who both ran Romney's campaign and owned the companies the campaign contracted with, etc. etc.

    So whether they spend more or less is really of no consequence, because they're not "spending," they're just passing it around the table to the same pockets it came out of.

    The only losers are the small donors who think they're buying "change" or "taking our country back" or whatever, and actually are just buying Rove's next luxury car.

      at coffee shops and diners when candidates (and the big old collection of consultants and media types) stop for a photo op.

      Not that the waitress will get a tip.
