Democrats Raising So Much More Ca$h Than Republicans

by Ken Layne

Limousine Librulz!Despite having lost the presidency and the House and the Senate and not passing any legislation people elected them to pass, congressional Democrats have somehow raised a ton more money than Republicans. Last month, the Dems raised $22 million more than the GOP, which used to be the party of Wealthy People until it was taken over by trailer-park slobs. [Washington Post]

Someone’s going to the lesbian bondage strip club tonight!

Mild Midwesterner April 21, 2010 at 10:27 am

However, lesbian strippers have raised a ton of cash from Republicans.

Well, that’s because we don’t have Michael Steele spending it on private jets, resort hotels, gentleman’s clubs, grape soda and Newport menthol cigarettes.

It’s from all those Obama tee-shirt sales!

coolcatdaddy April 21, 2010 at 10:29 am

Amazing how Sarah Palin and the Teabaggers can raise money just by opening their mouths.

A constitutional amendment requiring total public financing of elections and political advertising is needed. And the airwaves are owned by the public so a cap on airtime should be implemented.

And everyone will get a pony. Also.

It’s too late. Teabaggers are already celebrating their 2010 victory when they take both both houses and through an obscure Senate procedure force Obama to crawl on his hands and knees from the white house to the senate floor and show his birf certificate. There’s nothing we can do. You can’t fight the will of the people.

It’s as if rich people and corporations pretending to be people don’t want to be deal with stupid and somewhat insane people they can’t “own.”

I think for most of them, giving money to the Demrats is making the least awful choice.

Hopey dont play that game April 21, 2010 at 10:34 am

Rumor, Scout, Qbert, get mama’s checkbook. I’m givin’ 5$ to beat that damn Mulsin.

[re=561033]thesheriffisnear[/re]: And let’s not forget that little jaunt to Socialist brown-people land (aka Hawaii) cost them $340K. Michael Steele: the gift that keeps on giving … to the Dems!

They Surround Us!

Clearly, it’s because the Demoncrats are taking lots of money from dirty foreigners. As we all know, the bulk of Obama’s campaign contributions came from a handful of overseas sources. I saw it on the Internet.

Redhead April 21, 2010 at 10:36 am

Eh. The Repugnant demographic falls into two main categories: those with money, who tend to be more tight with it and much more reluctant to spend it on anything other than themselves, and those who routinely spend their social security checks traveling to DC to protest a government they don’t really understand and buying books from Palin and Beck. This isn’t really surprising.

Giving money to the government is communist-facist-socialism, after all.

Cape Clod April 21, 2010 at 10:36 am

I guess the toothless trailer trash spent all their money on guns and photoshopping Obama’s face to Hitler posters.

JadedDIssonance April 21, 2010 at 10:41 am

[re=561051]Redhead[/re]: I demand to see to which races Glenn Beck has contributed!

It’s obvious that George Soros is back to his old tricks of 100% supporting the sleazy liberal left. Also and such as.

nappyduggs April 21, 2010 at 10:44 am

Just you wait; Republicans love a come-from-behind victory.

Hiiiiiyoooo!

Red Zeppelin April 21, 2010 at 10:47 am

So how’s that urban-suburban hippy hoppy thing working out for ya?

proudgrampa April 21, 2010 at 10:49 am

[re=561060]nappyduggs[/re]: Heh. You said “come-from-behind.”

Katamaran April 21, 2010 at 11:32 am

Well, since no one else has said it, I guess it’s up to me. This is very good news for John McCain!

Potater April 21, 2010 at 11:43 am

The proverbial question:

“How will Democrats fuck THIS one up?”

[re=561033]thesheriffisnear[/re]: You just described my normal hump day morning.

slappypaddy April 21, 2010 at 12:17 pm

[re=561056]JadedDIssonance[/re]: the white one

Zadig April 21, 2010 at 12:49 pm

[re=561044]Hopey dont play that game[/re]: As much as I would like to feel smugly superior to this ignorant hick lady, I know that deep down, I will never have the balls to name one of my children Q-Bert.

Zadig April 21, 2010 at 12:51 pm

[re=561121]Potater[/re]: The same way they fuck things up EVERY night, Potater. Not try to take over the world!

snideinplainsight April 21, 2010 at 12:56 pm

Don’t kid yourselves kids! All those corporations-acting-as-people don’t have to funnel money through a “party” anymore, that had a declared “platform” and “positions” on “issues”. Why would they bother, even? Or even a “PAC”. They’re all just going to spend money themselves now, any which way they want, and it’s all protected political speech.

“Vote for X … if you want to stay warm this winter. This message brought to you by Exxon.”

Zadig April 21, 2010 at 1:08 pm

[re=561201]snideinplainsight[/re]: Oh, of course that’s the case. But that doesn’t mean I can’t feel smug for now, especially with Michael Steel dropping nearly a million dollars on ‘office supplies’.

GOPCrusher April 21, 2010 at 1:09 pm

Further proof that tens of Teabaggers=The Majority Of Americans.
I, for one, am planning to move to Costa Rica after they sweep the Democrats out of Congress and repeal everything that has been done in the last year and a half.

thesheriffisnear April 21, 2010 at 1:22 pm

[re=561148]Dolmance[/re]: WIGGER!!!! (I can say that cuz I’m, uh, “near”.

Zadig April 21, 2010 at 1:43 pm

[re=561250]thesheriffisnear[/re]: Wait, white people (um, I mean ‘distant’ people) can’t say “wigger” either?

Come on, that’s less of a “race” thing and more of a “that guy is culturally retarded” thing.

The GOP does, however, have more chickens.

They’ll have choked them all by the time the election comes around.

Jukesgrrl April 21, 2010 at 3:48 pm

Last week, the NYTimes highlighted problem #1 of the Tea Party: they aren’t all there for the same reasons. Half of them love Palin and the other half love Paul, and they’re starting to notice the difference. This is problem #2: they want to keep 100% of the money they make. If they don’t even want to pay taxes for schools and roads, why would they give away their money to help any dirty politician (except maybe Palin or Paul) get a job? They only spend money for the Tea Parties because they’re “fun” PARTIES — and they can reuse the tri-cornered hats for sex dress-up and the paper hand-outs make acceptable wipes for their off-the-grid toilets.
