First off, America's priorities...
Second off, the new SCOTUS decision has a lot of folks upset that corporate interests are 'suddenly' getting into politics. I disagree. It's just a couple fewer loopholes and holding companies funding their favorite candidates. See, the difference is, I've been paying attention. If you don't think Bill Clinton was elected by Wal-Mart... well, I guess you're pretty upset right now. This Goldman Sachs business is just mildly more 'transparent,' mostly because the folks running things are not good at disguising it as well as the last couple guys.
I'm still not sure if it's just because Brown sold conservationism better, bad campaigning on Martha Coakley's part, a step back for women and a woman can't win in MA... never mind that she won the election to be Attorney General? I think that if after 50+ years of Teddy, it'd be a natural reaction to get someone else in there. ANYONE else.
Yeah, that's what it's about.
