Man, Julia really is something else when she gets on a roll, isn’t she? Marvelous.
One thing to note, from this WhiteHouseForSale post that she quotes:
The Associated Press reports that while Democratic-leaning 527 groups are receiving in large contributions, Republican-leaning 527s are having difficulty finding super-sized donors of soft money.
“They don’t seem to exist, or they’re afraid to come forward,” David Keating, executive director of the Club for Growth conservative anti-tax group, said of million-dollar-plus GOP donors. “We’re certainly going to work to try to change it.” And a number of explanations are being offered.
Republican fundraiser Matt Keelen suggests that most Republican donors are businessmen who are inherently more conservative with their money.
And Jackson “Steve” Stephens of Arkansas says that CEOs must report to boards, whose members may not be comfortable giving big money to organizations that are independent, less well-known and, therefore, less “reputable” than an established political party.
Aren’t we overlooking an obvious reason here? I’ll give you a hint – it’s a three-word Latin phrase that means what for what.
And I agree with Jesse. They should definitely use the Club for Growth as their spiritual guide.
