Record DNC Haul; But Wait, The Media Said the Dems Were Dead!


    So, the DNC raises “more than $16 million in September,” largely from small donors, yet the corporate/idiot media’s been telling me relentlessly that Democrats are dead. It’s so confusing, especially given polls like this one, which indicate that Democrats are very much alive and kicking with four weeks to go until election day. Hmmmm…could the “lamestream media” be wrong? What a concept.

    P.S. In other political money news, it turns out that the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling has led to conservatives spending like there’s no tomorrow, fueling the “bottom up” (not!) Tea Party among other things.
