This Corporate Campaign Money Democrats Love

When Democrats get on one of their rants about the dangerous effects of corporate campaign money, what they really mean is that they are against corporate campaign money which might support Republicans.

The money which comes from unions to support Democrats is quite alright with them:

At least two influential unions will spend close to $100 million on the 2010 election, with most of those funds going to protect incumbents.

Union officials told The Hill they plan to help endangered members — particularly freshmen — who made politically difficult votes in a year during which an anti-incumbent mood has filled the country.

And the number will be even higher since the AFL-CIO declined to give its figures.

So the next time you hear Obama or other Democrats moaning about the Supreme Court's decision in the Citizens United case, remember ...

It's just politics.

P.S. How about donating some of that money to Central Falls, Rhode Island?
