Right Thinking From The Left Coast
The Government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them. - Mark Twain

That Evil Foreign Money- … Oh, Never Mind

Raise your hand if you are surprised.

Democratic leaders in the House and Senate alleging GOP groups have funneled foreign money into campaign ads have seen their party raise more than $1 million from political action committees affiliated with foreign companies.

House and Senate Democrats have received about $1.02 million this cycle from such PACs, according to an analysis compiled for The Hill by the Center for Responsive Politics. House and Senate GOP leaders have taken almost $510,000 from PACs on the same list.

The PACS are funded entirely by contributions from U.S. employees of subsidiaries of foreign companies. All of the contributions are made public under Federal Elections Commission rules, and the PACs affiliated with the subsidiaries of foreign corporations are governed by the same rules that American firms’ PACs or other PACs would face.

Of all the memes to be uncorked by the Party of Desperation this year, the “foreign money” one has to be the most bizarre.  It started with a baseless accusation, moved into the McCarthy Era with the “prove you are innocent” response and now has crossed the line into flat out hypocrisy.  I’m beginning to wonder who’s calling the shots over there in Camp Crumply.  Do they, like, know that there’s this whole internet thing where facts can be checked and your stupid lies exposed?

Update: Speaking of Desperate Democrats.
