$33,400 to attend the Obama/Clinton fundraiser yesterday and 100,000 to be a “co-chair”. Truly the dems are the “people’s party.”

At least at the Democrat dinner everyone ate fried chicken with their hands. People who eat it with a fork and knife are sociopaths.

I think you are confusing dems with communists. Dems generally have no problem with wealth but do recognize a trend towards extreme income disparity will eventually create problems and requires adjustments.

Why is this an issue to you? Campaigns cost money and Clinton is raising what she needs to win. This is one of the problems I have with my most outspoken republican friends recently.

Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, prominent member of the Ahab Caucus (h/t Eugene Robinson) faces a serious primary challenge today. It seems many Kansans aren’t happy when they lose their seat on the Ag Committee after 100+ years, particularly when the loss resulted mainly from the antics of their sitting rep, and they think a change would be for the better. Millions of dollars have flowed in from the likes of Club for Growth, Americans for Prosperity, the US CoC, and fellow AC members. In a clear sign Huelskamp is feeling the heat, he’s playing the abortion card, accusing his opponent,… Read more »

I’ve got a friend working for Marshall. He’s extremely optimistic and thinks it’s going be close, but that’s what every campaign person says the day of the vote.
