…Republicans have to be the most gullible suckers to ever walk the face of the earth.
According to FEC data released December 6, Dick Morris’ Super PAC for America paid conservative news outlet Newsmax Media roughly $1.7 million for “fundraising” in October and November. A significant portion of the super PAC’s money likely went to renting Morris’ own email list, which is operated by Newsmax Media.
A Media Matters review found that in the month before the election, Morris sent at least 21 emails to his mailing list featuring fundraising pitches that were “paid for by Super PAC for America.” Super PAC also “paid for” at least 25 emails to Newsmax.com’s main email list during the same period.
Separating gullible GOP dupes from their money was taken to new heights this year. In Morris’ version of the scam;
- Republicans donate money to Morris’ super PAC;
- he pays that money to Newsmax for ‘fundraising’; then
- Newsmax turns around and pays the money back to Morris, for access to his list of donors.
- meanwhile newsmax launches another round of emails at the gullible marks
So… paying taxes = horrible. Paying low life grifters to lie to you = patriotic.
“But wait,” you say. “I’m not sucker. I gave my money directly to Mitt.” Okay. You paid $31 million to a campaign staff which busied itself creating the fantasy world that Mitt was able to live in until reality crashed the party on election night.
The Washington Times (of all places) dug into the Romney scam: “(The Romney staff) had sizable bonuses written into their contracts. Seventeen Romney staffers made more money than Mr. Obama’s highest-paid staffer, despite not commencing work until months later, with Mr. Beeson making $360,000, Matt Rhoades making $330,000 and Lanhee Chen making $320,000.
Feel better? Does that give you a warm “fiscally conservative” feeling?
