Winners Count Their Money...

...and the losers cry foul.   Juan Cole is becoming confused about who’s “buying our elections,” because now he’s hosting an article that says that the “Super PACs” funded by “47 billionaires” are being outspent by other PACs that are funded anonymously, so that we actually don’t know who it is that is buying our elections.

That sort of weakens his charge that, “They want something in return for their money,” since giving orders to the newly elected legislators is going to be difficult when they don’t know who the hell you are.

At least in the past we’ve waited until after we actually lost the elections before we started screaming about the election having been stolen. Now we’re bragging about how we’re going to win and preemptively crying foul at the same time, just in case we lose. Pathetic.
