The VP short list

I would actually respect Romney if he had the ironclad balls to pick Meg Whitman.

Not because she's a good choice, but because she's such a monumentally awful choice and everyone knows it.


I was going to post the same thing. Do it Romney. Pick Meg Whitman.

She challenged an old man and came close to beating him. She has permed hair. She fires loyal people who work for her. Their twins.

Who cares? Its not like anyone will do anything.

Election laws aren't enforced. They could have a video of the president of China handing a bag of millions of dollars in cash directly to Mitt Romney and they still wouldn't enforce anything.

Cheat, rob and steal away because America is a lawless, rogue nation. Particularly when it comes to elections.

It's easy to confuse "taking it seriously" with "had a few too many at happy hour".

This is still all Fark's fault, and totally not mine, but I think you're interpreting me as way angrier than I am. Which is a big problem with internet communication. Everyone wants to communicate that they are the emotion that they are and they wind up taking it to extremes to be sure that it still appears that way in text.

Yeah, one or two too many, that's the ticket.

No worries then. And I definitely agree with you about Internet communication. It's way too easy to read into people's words online what we want or expect and completely miss what they're actually trying to communicate. Of course, that's the fuel that keeps the Politics tab burning, so I guess it has some use.

ArcadianRefugee: I don't know much of anything about PACs, so no.

Seriously: if someone can nutshell this for me, it'd be appreciated. After a quick Google/Wikipedia search I am still ignorant as to what they are and can/can't do.

:K


In short, unlimited amounts of money can be raised - with no individual limits from contributors (who can be human people or corporations-as-people) - as long as the Super PAC in no way coordinates with the candidate. And by no way, the means just about any way you can think of.

Your best bet is to watch the Stephen Colbert Super PAC stuff. The first link I am providing has a number of clips dealing with what they are and what they can do. The specific clips show exactly where the line is as far as towing the non-coordination line is. In short, Rove and Romney can do everything that you and I might consider coordination, but it won't count as coordination under the Super PAC laws.

Clip 1 - Stewart takes over and promises not to coordinate with candidate Colbert.

Clip 2 - Specific examples of Colbert and Stewart legally not coordinating as they coordinate.

Thanks for the civics lesson. Is democracy defined by massive anonymous donations that saturate a market so much, anyone without the benefit of billionaire benefactors have zero chance of getting their message out?

I'm just wondering who would be liable for prosecution if a court found that a Super PAC had indeed coordinated with a candidate. For example, Mitt Romney certainly would claim he has no control, knowledge or involvement with his group but if he develops a panel with The Romney Campaign, The Founder of American Crossroad, Two Employees from the Weekly Standard, Three Employees from Fox News, One employee from CNN to work on a media strategy, would he be in trouble? The head of American Crossroads?

as I said, no one is going to jail because no laws were broken at least from the info contained in TFA. No one is in trouble. The campaign cannot coordinate with the SuperPAC but they're allowed to hang out together, sit on the same boards, Karl Rove can give Romney some advice over lunch, whatever. The founder of a SuperPAC can even help the campaign with strategy - just not coordinated with the SPAC

Nope, Obama's got crazy untraceable money from large donors and his super-pacs are taking cues from his campaign too and nobody's been giving a shiat about that either.

I mean, I don't doubt that on average they're more _competent_ about not giving the game away, because competence is kind of the hallmark of Obama's operations, but they've been doing the same shiat. It's made the Daily show a couple times, even, iirc, so even FARK users have probably heard mention of it, mostly.

//Speaking of, Colbert did a running bit about SuperPacs and initially had trouble actually making any jokes because it's almost impossible to exaggerate how easily abused the system currently is.
//Also been mentioned in a number of dead-tree publications and you can put it together fairly easily from publically available even info, etc, but easier to just cite the TDS guys because it's funny and they do the footwork for you.

Ulcered Sphincter "and" Arse-erica? Arse-hole? The conjunction has me confused.

Blues_X: You need to learn what the f*ck "tyrannical" means before you speak.


So many meanings... Back in the day, a tyrant was a ruler who ousted the aristocracy in favour of the people's will and desire. Plato found this distasteful and added a whole mess of negativity into the mix, but original tyrants were basically the rulers who earned, rather than inherited, their power, and were normally installed by popular demand and even coup instead of by being hand-picked and installed by a previous ruler.

So, in the Classical, non-Platonic, sense, I suppose President Obama could well qualify as a tyrant; President Bush was more of a basil. Or maybe a nightshade.

(CNN) - In a change of position, Barack Obama's reelection campaign will begin using administration and campaign aides to fundraise for Priorities USA Action, a super PAC backing the president.

"This decision was not made overnight," one campaign official said. " The money raised and spent by Republican super PACs is very telling. We will not unilaterally disarm."

In an e-mail to supporters, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said the decision was a reaction to massive fundraising posted by super PACs supporting GOP presidential candidates.
