Meg Whitman blew a lot of money

After all, how much would it have cost her to just buy Diebold?

Remember, as Josef Stalin is reported to have said;

“It’s not who votes that counts. It’s who counts the votes.”

Or a least it was something like that since he was probably speaking Russian and with all those funny extra cyrillic letters they have, translations can get a little fuzzy, panamyish?

I don’t know if that company’s privately owned or a division of Karl Rove Industries, or if it’s possibly up for sale as the Republicans move along with their new Supreme Court sanctioned secret funding arrangements, but I think that as Meg has proved, when you’ve got enough money, you can set out to buy anything.

Well, apparently except for a personality, that is.

5 more days, plan on getting out and voting…..

    I read recently that those wealthy candidates who contribute hardy sums to their own campaigns are elected only 11% of the time. It is understandable. If you have a billion dollars, wouldn’t you rather buy more TV ads then spend a July afternoon shaking hands in a Paso Robles Fairgrounds cowshed? Alas, when you’re pouring money into ads, you will likely be talking to the same people again and again, whereas the cowshed folks are virgin territory. As it were.
