Budweiser presents: The 2008 Democratic Convention
May 28, 2008 1 Comment
According the the NY Times, the Dems are lagging on their fundraising efforts for their convention this summer in Denver. Smart money says the problem is that donors are wasting their money on a primary race that is being dragged out by one candidate who has no shot.
But at least the corporations are lining up to help write the platform. Promotional consideration paid for by the following :
Companies that have already donated to the Denver committee and whose logos appear on the committee’s Web site include the Lockheed Martin Corporation, the Ford Motor Company, Anheuser-Busch, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Merck, Lilly, Allstate, Travelers, Lehman Brothers, A.T.& T., Visa, Target and Western Union.
Politicians are like racecars. They’re always gearing up for the next race and they’re both sponsored by hundreds of corporations, all hoping to have their interests advanced by some tool in a crash helmet and a three-piece Teflon suit.
Anyone running for office should be forced to wear the emblem of whatever toxic waste-dumper or puppy-flogger toward which they’re turning a blind eye and deaf ear.
It would be easier to know who we are getting into bed with.
“Apparently there’s some other show going on across the street but it’s all SOLD OUT.
Brothers and sisters, our democracy has been hijacked.
Brothers and sisters, our electoral freedom in this country is over so long as it’s controlled by corporations.”
