Doesn’t the piss-poor primary performance (say that ten times fast without stopping!) of Jeb! Bush, and Donald Trump’s loss in Iowa, mean that our elections aren’t, actually, for sale?
I’m actually thinking more about Jeb! than Trump, as I’m not sure Trump has actually spent much money yet, relying on all the free attention the lamestream media has lavished upon him. But Jeb! has a SuperPAC that raised over $103 million as of last summer. As Mother Jones noted:
To put Right to Rise’s numbers in historical context, Mitt Romney’s entire primary effort in 2008 cost $107 million; Hillary Clinton’s cost $245.7 million.
With all that money and he came in sixth? After spending more money than anybody else?
Maybe we don’t need to be so freaked out that he (or she) with the most money wins.
What do you think?
