  •  Look at where the money's going (6+ / 0-)

    The DSCC and D-Trip have more money than God right now.  That's all from corporate donors who don't want either a strong central DNC or strong party orgs that can't be pushed around as easily by big-money donors.

    The question shouldn't be "why is the DNC doing so badly?" when it is in fact raking in more money than it ever has.  (It's only "doing badly" in comparison to the corporate-driven hauls of the DCCC and DSCC; and they're raking it in in large part because with the destruction of the Abramoff-DeLay "K Street Project", the de facto prohibition against lobbyists and corporations donating to anyone but Republicans has vanished, and the corporations are now trying to cozy up to the very people they'd spurned less than two years ago.)

    The question should be "why not work with groups like http://www.publiccampaign.org to limit the corrupting role of money in politics?"

      •  It's a good analysis, but... (0+ / 0-)

        It is totally wrong.  If you go to opensecrets.org it is easy to look up the top industies that contribute to the DNC and the DCCC.  The lists and percentages are remarkably similar.

        Top contributors to the DNC in the 2005-2006 cycle included Securities & Investments, Lawyers, Real Estate, TV/Movies, Finance, Computers/Internet, etc.  The list for the DCCC is almost identical.

        Your little conspiracy theory is bunk.
