    always cover a really bad candidate. But it can still drive a lot of voter information and bias, it's just that there is too much overkill and heavy handedness that can't be completely camouflaged by long tons of cash.

    Steve Forbes, Mike Huffington, Meg Whitman & Mitt Romney were all very flawed candidates with more than enough money to have won if money was the thing that could make the difference.  It's the ones flying below the radar and hiding the fact that they're bad candidates that I'm worried about because voters are still pretty passive & more than a little lazy. ::sigh::
