#rsrh Drinking the Old Grey Lady’s tears on Super PACs…

…personally, I don’t find the system nearly as ‘corrupt’ or ‘pollut[ed]’ as the New York Times seems to – unless, of course, we’re simply taking both terms to be semantically equivalent to ‘got rid of legislators that the NYT liked’ – but in its way that just makes all the better this bitter, despondent, let-me-swig-more-rotgut-and-pound-the-typewriter screed about how Obama’s going to use those eeeeeeeeeeeevil Super PACS in his campaign.  I mean it, too.  Watching the anonymous author come to terms with the fact that he or she was deliberately and callously lied to will warm your insides.

Mind you, the author will still vote for Obama in November. Which is why I’m so contemptuous: don’t expect respect from me if you can’t even respect yourself…

    “Mm, your tears are so yummy and sweet! Oh, the tears of unfathomable sadness! My-yummy! Mm-yummy, you guys!”
    Tears from the NYT is even better!

    I’ve actually digested and understand the “money IS speech” argument. However, it’s so clear that the money has become SOOO corrupting — in ways both hard and soft — that my instincts keep telling me: “We need to get the money out of politics!!!” Can’t figure out how, though….

    Sorry, NSBS, money *is* politics, and vice versa. You might as well be trying to get the f*ing out of sex.

  • antisocial says:

    Expect respect from you? You seriously think the NYT author had any respect from anybody ever? They don’t even hope to get any respect 🙂

  • NotSoBlueStater says:

    I know, Ric. And yet, when somebody asks me what I think THE problem is, it’s the money. Does that make the situation hopeless? Not sure.
