    Maybe distro costs for negative ads or something? That's all I can think of.

    No ... no wood here ... I just find it interesting. Why do we have campaign
    laws if the candidates don't follow them.

    The other thing about this stuff:

    All that $$$ to run for office ... you know how many schools & health clinics that could put all that money to better use? You have a candidate that the poor & minorities thinks is their guy ... and he's using all that $$$ just to get a job. mcCain is no better ... he's just not as good at fundraising as BHO is.

    Anyways ... how do you spend $9 million now and $85 million in the future and nobody notices and/or nobody cares?

    I'm rambling but wow ... we are way messed up.
