  •  Moguls spending money on political propaganda (8+ / 0-)

    is much preferable to them sitting on the cash or stashing it in off-shore accounts. These dollars keep our media outfits running in the black, not to mention that a host of creative people can take a paycheck to the bank.

    That democrats are being attacked on their strengths should no longer surprise us. The object of the attack is twofold: it aims to hide the attacker's weak spot and to throw the target off his stride by intimidating him into backing away from his strengths. John Kerry's run in 2004 should have wised us up to that for good.

    The Cons really do believe "the best defense is a good offense." Since they are always defensive and insecure, they have to be offensive. It doesn't actually get them to the goal. But, that doesn't matter. Being offensive has become such a habit that it feels good.

      Moguls from the Right and Left spending enormous amounts of money in political campaigns is one thing, however moguls from the Right and Left spending enormous amounts of money to own politicians in office is quite another.
      Money pollutes the political process and produces the best government that money can buy.

        Politicians who can be owned by a mogul need to be retired. Of course, one never knows the first time around. But, that's why we have elections every two years.

        They're to the left of me.

        Jokers are to the right.

        It stinks, and it always has stunk. The difference now is that we can see it clearly thanks to the Inter-tubez.

        Everyone asks for money; it their actions that count when they get in office.  And on that front, Democrats with money are a whole league better for the people than Republicans with money.
