The Buying of the Presidency

When one individual can spend $35 million (and counting) to purchase a presidential candidate, we have a government of the highest bidder, by the highest bidder, for the highest bidder.

And does anyone believe that a husband and wife who can throw around cash like candy have the slightest clue what the average American is experiecing? Let alone care? After all, they dropped the first $25 million on Newt Gingrich.

But Sheldon Adelson and his wife Dr. Miriam Adelson aren't even the post children of the purchasing of America That honor goes to David and Charles Koch, who have pledged to spend $400 million on behalf of candidates and issues.

Yet when the Supreme Court justices who foisted this abomination to democracy upon us convene today to again discuss Citizens United, they won't be looking at that they gave birth to. Instead, they will whether lower courts can even interpret their collective "wisdom."

The right's purchase of power in the United States is coming perilously close to complete.

Hey! Dimwit. Who do you think bought Obama? Oh, wait, it was Soros wasn't it?

If that tactic worked, wouldn't Newt be the nominee?
