Great post Brian! You have dissected the oligarchy with some precision here. Hopefully we can begin to break their backs in this election. All you can buy with all that money is a bunch of signs that you have to put in the public right of way because you don't have any real supporters, and a bunch of boring mailers that go straight into the trash can.

I enjoyed this one. Take another look at Carole Smith's contributions then look at Donald Trump's. Notice something. It's an old political trick. You give yourself a big loan so you don't have to disclose who's paying for the campaign til after the vote. Carole and I attended the same meetings with the groups you decry and she worked as hard as anyone to get their endorsement. I wonder how you would have played this if she'd gotten them. Different I would guess.
