- Because all Republican rhetoric is about how the ELITE represses the PEOPLE and we should always side with the PEOPLE against the ELITE and their SINISTER GOVERNMENT, you might think that America’s actual economic elite would be opposed to Republican policies. You would be wrong, though! For instance, over the course of this cycle rich dude Bob Perry has spread a cool $11 million around among Karl Rove’s American Crossroads election cabal and the Republican Governors Association. Also, radical outsider Tea Party candidates are getting campaign money from rich Wall Street fat cats, via John Boehner! [NYT, WP]
- Harry Reid is all man, baby. ALL MAN! Also, he likes making Dick Cheney jokes. [WP]
- Barack Obama recorded a video telling bullied gay teens that it will get better for them! Like, when DADT gets repealed and gay marriage is legal! You know, much later. [Fox]
