    They will flow from undisclosed locations.  Pioneers who hear voices in their head saying "write a check" -- we'll count it towards your next skybox...

    •  That will create a crisis for the Rethugs though? (6+ / 0-)

      Tweety was already on this on Hardball tonite - aghast as I was - are the Republicans Greens? Republicans? or Independents? or Independent Democrats?  What the hell are they and why are they running from their own nominee?  It's a question that Mehlman could NOT answer.

    •  they can't (2+ / 0-)

      Political donations are a matter of public record.

      And we can safely guarantee that any GOP heavy hitters Pioneering donations for him will be spotted and publicized posthaste.

        But I suspect that Rethug money will be channeled thru all sorts of PACs with meaningless names like Connecticut for Cooperation or some other drivel.  Plus they will launder it thru unknowns or common names like Mary Smith.

        •  I don't think so (5+ / 0-)

          A large-scale money-laundering operation would take time and effort to set up, not to mention money.  The Republicans are in a world of hurt financially this cycle.  They usually count on a monster financial difference to finance their smear campaigns.  But this election cycle, they're having trouble raising money, the Democrats are raising far more than usual, AND it seems like every GOP seat needs defending.  How much money will they spend on a guy who's likely to caucus Democrat even if he wins, and vote against them 95% of the time (rather than 98% of the time, ie Lamont)?  That money could be better and easier spent on Santorum's losing cause, or the DeLay write-in campaign, or defending any of the DOZENS of marginal seats.
