They told me if I voted for Romney, the country would be consumed by runaway crony capitalism. I voted for Romney and sure enough, the country is being consumed by runaway crony capitalism.

Subby, your headline is clearly a case of hyperbole. 1 to 4 PM is way too specific of a timeframe. 8 AM to 4PM is much more realistic.

And yet the liberal solution is a further consolidation of power to the federal government.

Is anyone really surprised? Frankly, I feel that politicians should be forced to wear patches of their corporate sponsors on their suits; kind of like nascar.

rumpelstiltskin: I'm always amazed at how little it costs to buy a politician. How can anyone respect congressmen, when they're just a bunch of farking pikers?

When did we start respecting congressmen?

notto: Methodology: MapLight analysis of campaign contributions to members of Congress from PACs and employees of Comcast Corp., from January 1, 2001 - December 31, 2012.

Comcast has 130,000 employees.

This methodology is BS.

Unless the contributions were bundled, a well-known campaign finance tactic. I cable and broadband companies ever offer bundles?

Yup, and the actual source they linked to don't even provide a source for their information.

This is the dumbest greenlight this week and I frequent the video tab often.

At least it's not gawker this time. In about a week we'll get a link to jezebel that links to this site.

mongbiohazard: I'm shocked. Shocked I tell you. Because this is so different from how our government is usually run. It's not like the people who we elect ostensibly as lawmakers actually spend more than half their time fundraising, so are more accurately described as fundraisers. Noooooooo...


Unless you start off very wealthy, and just buy a seat.
Of course most of the super wealthy are more inclined to buy a Senate seat.
