A little YouTube to cheer you up on a rainy Thursday.
Appropriate, actually, on the day after Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch announced he was giving $1 million to the Republican Party (well, actually the Republican Governors Association. But whatever). That tiny corporate donation was only the natural honey-chile of The Supremes decision in Citizens United v. FEC which promised to escalate the corporate domination of every American brain cell not already permanently addled by reality TV.
As important as Fox News is already -- the official-unofficial propaganda arm of the GOP -- this is only the tip of a menacing block of floating ice that will sink any ship it brushes. The Republican Governors Assn. had already collected $1.48 million from the Michigan Chamber of Commerce and another $1 million from the head of Koch Industries, a huge chemical conglomerate headquartered in Wichita, Kan.
I will not be able to applaud when Democrats start mining the same veins of corporate ore. I'll understand why, but I won't applaud it.
American electoral democracy ... sunk by big money.
