The ties that bind 

A heartwarming tale of friendship and camaraderie from, of all places, the Los Angeles Times.

More along the same lines here.

Change, dat. Not.

To quote Dear Leader: "Spread the wealth around a little bit"

Works great, especially when it's not YOUR wealth...

I stopped reading after the "journalist" claimed: We already knew that BP and its folks were significant contributors to the record $750-million war chest of Barack Obama's 2007-08 campaign.

Significant? Pfffttt. Obama received $71,000 in contributions from employees who worked at BP!! Not from a PAC. Good grief, the oil industry spent $175M lobbying Congress in 2009 alone!

Oh, BTW, the "significant" $71,000 in contributions he received from individuals who worked at BP represented less than .1% of the total amount ($750M) contributed to his campaign. Scandalous, I say!

Thanks to Anon 01:21 for bringing us up to date of the latest lame MediaMatters spin.

Of course, ignored (easy to do when one is an ignoramus)is the nearly $3 million in BP-related PAC donations and the nearly $700,000 in employee contributions over the last two decades. That doesn't even scratch the nearly 16 million in lobbying funds spent.

I wonder if Rahm's rent was listed in this???
