In re George Soros

This arrogant jerk has publicly stated that he personally intends to buy the presidency for the Democrats, and the "mainstream" media say nothing. Had a rich Republican said and done the exact same thing regarding a Democratic President, the media would never shut up about it.


Indeed.

Frankly, I think it just shows how desperate many of us are to get Shrub Jr. the hell away from the White House. Hell, I'd do it if I had the money...

Instead rich Republicans do it silently, and the media is just as silent.

I'm amazed...

... people think you can BUY a presidency.

If that was possible, you'd think Bill would buy himself the presidency, make Microsoft the official software vendor for the US, and so on.

At most, you can exert some influence. But if the voters are really against you, you can't do anything about it. (the last election, ironically, proved this. If they'd gone with the recount/election strategy Bush wanted, Dole would have won. Instead, they went with Dole's approach, so Bush won. Closest presidential race in my memory, and it wasn't decided by any clear means -- monetary or otherwise. It just... sorta happened.)

Oh, fine, fine...

... try to point out some trivial difference as in which politician I'm talking about. *sweatdrop*

Lies! Lies!

"and the "mainstream" media say nothing"

They don't say nothing. They cover it significantly. It's just that you can almost hear them in the background giggling maniacally about how clever they think it all is.
