OK so Obama collects a quarter billion dollars in contributions from millions of people who sent the money in 10s and 20s–i.e., 90% of his contributions were well under $100. He’s way over the $85M FEC collecting limit if he wants the governmental campaign financing. Everyone’s running around going–ah-hah, he’s a hypocrite, since he said he’d limit himself. What’s he going to do with the money if he DOES go with government campaign financing? Is he supposed to a) give it to the Democratic Committee, b) stick it in his pocket, or c) give it back? I’ll remind y’all that after Super Tuesday, McCain sent a letter to the FEC stating his intention not to rely on government campaign financing–but this request is in limbo since the FEC is short 4 commissioners. McCain Blows by Public Spending Cap and Holding McCain Accountable For Campaign Finance Violations
If I remember Obama correctly, he basically said that he hoped that McCain and he would both agree to the fed campaign limitations. Is it hypocrisy to make the choice that is your only real option? His supporters didn’t give the money to the Democratic Party–they gave it to the Obama campaign. Sticking it in his pocket is a no-go from the get-go. Giving it back? Hell, that would use UP more money than he could return! What’s he supposed to use, PayPal?

So why all the hubbub, bub? Could it be that now that Hill has stopped putting her foot in her mouth, the media needs a new controversy? Besides Cindy McCain’s cookie recipe? And perhaps that the right-wing wants to paint Obama errrr black? And McCain white (actually kind of a pale rosacea). Hmmmm, could those be the reasons behind Campaign Finance-gate? Enquiring minds want to know 😉

Man, am I getting bored with this nomination process. WTF are we (as a nation) subjecting ourselves to a year of constant campaigning while we should have been focusing on trying to undo the wrongs that the Bush administration has done to all but the few, the proud, the obscenely wealthy? Hillary has been a good senator (for the most part) and was a good girl in the 2004 election by keeping her promise not to abandon her constituents, but God have mercy, what a panderer she’s become. She tries to prove she’s one of the people and then goes on Bill O’Reilly (watch it on YouTube) to convince him that she loves rich people, God Bless Us, everyone. And she can’t operate a coffee machine 😀

Far more important is a different aspect of Tuesday’s primary. The Supremes upheld an Indiana voter ID law, called one of the toughest of the newly passed legislation. In case you didn’t know it, our biggest problem, according to the party of BIG MONEY, is people trying to vote who have no right to. Gee, all this time I thought it was our FU’d voting machines and how we’ve spend huge sums to purchase computerized machines that can be hacked by anyone. But no, voter fraud, not defrauding the voters, is our big problem. Indiana requires a fed or state photo ID, and TATATATATAAAAAAAA, 12 nuns in their 80s and 90s got turned away because of their lack of proper ID. (Boston Herald–AP) Nun turns away sisters lacking ID at Indiana primary OK it was another nun who actually turned them back, but she was just following the rules set up by pigs at the trough. Welcome to the United Corporation of America, where you can experience first-hand Democracy Lite.
