Money

Pink Floyd has the theme music for the majority of my e-mails these days: Money.

The only political ads I see are on blogs or media sites, normally because they are bad or funny. The media buyers seem to be throwing their money ‘preaching to the choir’. The latest screeching e-mail is that Trump was out fundraising Biden during some period.

First off, if you have been paying attention, you would know that a significant amount of that money is going to be skimmed off the top by various elements of the Trump organization. Don Jr’s girlfriend and Eric’s wife are each being paid $180k/month by the campaign for unknown reasons and campaign events are held at Trump properties wherever possible. (These are the same people who believe that $600/week for an unemployed single mother is outrageous.)

There is no evidence that the Biden campaign ‘overhead’ is anywhere near as expensive as Trump’s. So if his media buyer isn’t a crook, Biden’s money may actually buy twice as much as Trump’s. It isn’t how much you spend, it’s how you spend it. Hysteria over money is just annoying.
