The Electoral Industrial Complex

This latest polemic from American Crossroads is fantastic telivision: dripping with production value and better writing than most domestic sitcoms.

It is incredible to think of the industry clustering around the American electoral process. And why not, there’s money to made. There are the candidate’s warchests of course, with Obama easily ahead – raising a casual $31.8M Us in the first quarter this year. It will be interesting to watch this year’s election to see how relevent candidate campaign money is in the face of unlimited superpac funds, and to discover how unlimited those funds really are.
