The Other McCain: financial strategery for the Tea Party
Stacy McCain has written a seminal blog post on financial strategy for the Tea-Party and (if they can get their rich heads out of their fat butts) the Republican party.
Stacy’s post: on-media-money-and-membership observes,
“Nevertheless we are struck by the sharp contrast between how George Soros employs his wealth — to build a media infrastructure for advancing his broad political agenda — and how wealthy Republicans spend their own money: To advance the narrow personal ambition of Mitt Romney.“
Stacy then lays out the financials
“For the $4 million that the perma-tanned RINO Charlie Crist collected during that single three-month span of 2009, you could fund eight spiffy little New Media operations for a year (or four such operations for two years). And FEC contribution limits do not apply to people making “investments” in news operations, so that the rich Republicans would not be restricted in their generosity toward New Media, as they are toward political candidates.“
