That is true, but we can continue this line of thought and note that NBC/CBS/ABC/Hollywood are superbowl champions.

Cable news is miniscule in the big picture. Let's not kid ourselves, these Hilary shows are political advertisements....or advertorials if you will allow the comparison.

I didn't mention Citizens United anywhere in this thread let alone this year. Explains why you're dumbfounded.

Not to mention, the toolbag fights for teachers in public schools, but sends his kid to private school. I don't like Leonardo DiCaprio, but at least he walks the walk.

Do you think it was a good decision or a bad decision?

I thought we were discussing the organization. It appears you're referencing Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. So with that being said...

I agree with the ruling despite acknowledging that it's damaging to the election process and favors no one except those with deep pockets. It seems like 9 times out of 10 the person who spends the most wins the election. That brings into the question... are politicians campaigning for the people or their donors?

However, at the end of the day it's the responsibility of the voter to do their due diligence and select who they feel will best represent their interests and the interests of their community.

This is no different, just different deep pockets who happen to be ridiculously influential to boot.

Probably playing hookey fishing somewhere.

However, my main points still stand, that the endless GOP debates proved to be highly fratricidal, as they're intended to be if to a far lesser degree than they were. Those debates basically cued up many of the issues used against Romney in the general election campaign. It is hardly any secret that the GOP, the establishment at least, wants desperately to reign them in while the TP wing wants to leave that avenue open for their more insurgent candidates.

These schisms are only going to be amplified for 2016 so if Rinse can find some way to reduce the primary debates without calling attention to this GOP schism, well, using the Hillery biopics as a foil is a perfect diversionary tactic.
