The Real Millionaires And Their Support Staff

Over the course of her congressional campaign, Republican Linda McMahon boasted that she was willing to sink $50 million into her bid for the U.S. Senate. The tribunes of the people immediately drew their swords. McMahon, it was said in scores of editorials and commentary pieces, was attempting to buy a seat in the congress.

The outrage directed by the Main Stream Media at McMahon, whose opponent is also a millionaire – present Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, the MSM’s anointed candidate for Sen. Chris Dodd’s seat -- has not been poured upon the heads of Democratic contestants in the state’s congressional delegation, even though CTMirror has provided unimpeachable proof that Democratic incumbents, not their impoverished Republican challengers, are the real millionaires.

Republican challengers hoping that the anti-millionaire animus directed at McMahon will now be focused laser-like on their rich and greedy Democratic opponents had better not hold their breath waiting for such as Rick Green and Colin McEnroe of the Courant -- not to cite other too numerous to mention cracker-jack liberals in Connecticut’s one-way media -- to direct their outrage at their favored Democrats.

Better just to swallow the pain of injustice and get along without these disingenuous, hypocritical, partisan liberal sons of thunder in their corner.

  1. I know it is a tough pill to swallow... But ya ought to be pushing for state funded campaign finance reform without any outside money at all. No PACs, no 501c3s, no personal or corporate money at all. It is the only chance the GOP has in this state.

    This is a liberal state. No matter the amount of money the GOP pours into a campaign, people won't vote for tax cuts for the rich, cutting social security, privatizing pie in the sky schemes and other radical GOP agendas.

    May as well give your candidates a chance of not being drowned out of the public square with lefty money and evil corporate owned liberal media. < smirk >

    As we look at Michael Steele hiding 7 million million in RNC debts, you may as well face the fact, as well, that the GOP just isn't very good nor responsible when it comes to financial matters... Across the board, and as your stats suggest in a direct comparison.

    But that was already evident after 30 years of the radical Reganomics of cutting taxes and deregulating everything while expecting the deficit to shrink and slow the concentration of cash in those elitist liberal rich types' hands.

    What is it the GOP supporters always say about in their free marketeer sloganeering? The best always rises to the top in finances and politics? The best is in the left by those standards, as absurd as most of the repetitive GOP talking points always are.

    /snark of truth.
