TPMmuckraker: Economic Freedom Fund Archives

TPMmuckraker: Economic Freedom Fund Archives: "The Economic Freedom Fund has made its biggest buy of the campaign so far: $446,850* in television ads in Iowa's 3rd District.

The ad, which you can see here, hits Democrat incumbent Leonard Boswell for voting against making Bush's tax cuts permanent. "

I have had various fantasies about how Democrats, liberals and outraged moderates might be motivated to "overthrow" the corrupt Republican leadership in Congress.

But, it is worthwhile remembering that some very rich and determined people are more than willing to fight for Republican corruption.

An awful lot in our politics comes down to the effectiveness of the 30 second ad and the slogan on a bumpersticker.
