The Colorado Model - the money goes to Texas
I love it when the Republicans are scared of the Democrats.
Fred Barnes shows they are really scared about what is happening in Colorado. There are many laughable statements in his article, Colorado has no rich conservatives spending money on their candidates(!) It really is no secret about the "seven "capacities" that are required to drive a successful political strategy and keep it on offense: the capacity to generate intellectual ammunition, to pursue investigations, to mobilize for elections, to fight media bias, to pursue strategic litigation, to train new leaders, and to sustain a presence in the new media."
The biggest laughs come from Barnes pretending that conservatives haven't been funding institutions to do this since the 70's to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. Look to this article mostly as a pitch to the Coors and many other rich conservatives to unite and spend much more money to maintain control of Colorado.
I found this funny and encouraging article in checking out who has been paying Matt "There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch, So Pay My Way" Bramanti's way lately. The answer is the libertarian/conservative Sam Adams Alliance, one of those nonexistent Colorado conservative institutions Fred Barnes was urging creation of. Maybe if Colorado conservatives weren't paying to train Texas conservative bloggers they might have some money for Colorado.
The conference that Matt is talking about is some pitiful lil thing conservatives held down the street from the progressive Netroots Nation convention in Austin. It was noticed that the conservatives kept showing up where the big liberal boys were.
Conservatives, don't cry in your beers and lattes over the surge in liberal fortunes, as billionaires realize that their rich bulging pocketbooks need the GOP to stay in power, Matt and his cronies will be showered with money.
Here is Kuff and Matt sharing some of their thoughts with the Chron.
Amazing how Matt complains about the shrill liberals, guess he never reads the comments on his Lone Star Times. Next time you see Matt ask if he agrees with Mike Savage about the wimpy austism and asthma sufferers and their families. Does he object to taking Colorado money when The Weekly Standard says Colorado needs it?
