    they have way more money. Progressives looking out for the middle class and the poor are always going to lack the kind of money they have. They can buy media and politicians, they can buy influence on the right and left, they fund an intricate array of think tanks and scholarships and universities which comes complete with an entire career path. Most of their projects don't turn a profit, but that's not the reason they exist. The Limbaughs and Fox News' are the rare exception, not the rule. They exist to sway national opinion. In short, to trick people into voting against their own interests.

    How much do you think any front pager on Daily Kos and a lot of the popular diarists would make if we had access to these kinds of numbers and wielded this kind of influence working for the right? The answer is six figures, that's on top of guaranteed best seller book deals written by ghost writers, easy.

    In short they can fabricate a social inertia and inject a story into the national dialogue no matter how idiotic or blatantly ridiculous it may be.
