Money, money, money

This will probably be useful down the line. A Pinterest page of Romney's super-wealthy patrons as of May 31, 2012. Of course, this is only the money that was required to be reported. You can be certain there's plenty more "dark money" being sluiced into the various front groups created under the anonymity of Citizen United. Which is reaching hundreds of millions. In fact, I saw some prediction recently that expects at least a billion to be spent on the Romneybot.

It's a lot of money, but still, when you look at the net worth of these guys, it's not that much. Not sure what pisses me off more. You kind of expect politicians are going to be bought off. That's been happening forever. But it really rankles to see how cheaply they'll sell their souls to the oligarchs. Technically, the oligarchs still need them to rubberstamp the policy. You might think they would drive a harder bargain. [graphic via]
