Conflicts of Interest on Either Side. . .

. . . do American Democracy no good at all.

I just got an email a little while ago. I started reading the same old crap from the same old DCCC source as always, but then I noticed. “Hey!” I exclaimed loud enough for the guy in the next cube to hear me, “that sucks!”

Dear Thomas,
Here’s how Dick Cheney does it. He travels the country with little or no media attention and raises millions of dollars at posh fundraisers to fund GOP attack ads. Next stop on the Cheney “Get a Pic with Dick” Tour: Las Vegas for a GOP fundraiser charging folks $2,500 a head for a photo with the seldom-seen Vice-President.

WTF, people? I thought Paul Begala was some sort of journalist, working for CNN and Crossfire and all that? How is this ethical? At least Mr. Bowtied Avenger isn’t actively campaigning for money for the Republican Party (that I know of).

Conflicts such as this, regardless what side of the isle they happen on, are just plain wrong.
