Ours are too busy taking the high road.
"I am 100 percent behind Kerrey," [Warren] Buffett, the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, told POLITICO. "I will not be doing super PACs of any sort. I think allowing unlimited contributions to campaigns is a terrible idea and an important and unfortunate step toward a plutocracy.'"Allowing unlimited contributions to campaigns is a terrible idea and an unfortunate step toward a plutocracy. And the best way that plutocracy happens is to refuse to fight fire with fire.
I've long railed against weenie liberals who cling to their high-minded ideals as if they're more important than winning the next elections, and this is the reason why—you don't change the world by allowing the other side to win elections and codify their version of the rules. You fight will all available tools and resources, and when you win, THEN you rewrite the rules to shape a better society.
But too many liberals would rather stay pure and lose, than get down in the mud and win, and that's one of the biggest electoral advantages conservatives enjoy.
