I'll bet you didn't know it, but the reason that Republicans are in the White House is because they are better organizers (p.s. did you know that Hitler was a very good organizer as well?). What do these people consider the Brookings Institution, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and every single college campus in the United States?

My afterthought: It sounds like this money is going to flow pretty freely, so Sean can you set us up another blog with a catchy title like "How Carl Rove Tricked Me and Everyone of My Non-Branching Family Tree to Vote Against My Economic Interests." I guarantee we can get some $$ for that. Most of Soros' friends got their money from internet companies, isn't this idea way better than pets.com?
