Money, money, money
The amounts of money involved in funding political races is obscene. The Pennsylvania Progressive points out that Santorum got some money from someone tied to Jack Abramoff. I'm sure if you look at Casey's reports you will find some questionable donations. Every campaign is involved in this sort of gotcha. It just doesn't register with the rest of us.
The general perception, right or wrong, is that they are all bought and paid for. I don't what can be done about it. The law of the land is money=free speech. The practical effect is that people with a fat bank account have a louder voice than the rest of us.
Short of amending the constitution I don't know what can be done. And there are very few constitutional amendments I favor. It's worked so far so don't mess with it.
Well there is one constitutional amendment I favor.
The designator hitter rule shall not be used in the game of baseball in the United States.
