The mentiion of campaign contributions brings up a matter that may merit a closer look.
When Sarah Palin leapt into national prominence as a Vice Presidential candidate, one of the first things she did with the campaign contributions was spend about $150,000 on a new wardrobe.
Then she gallivants all over the country, does television interviews, provides vast quantities of material for comedians like Tina Fay, and generally gets her ego stroked.
She quits her regular job (Governor of Alaska) to concentrate more on the presidential election, which leads to more campaign contributions (from people more bewildered than she is)—then she withdraws from the race!
None of the contributed money is going to where the contributors intended.
Isn't that what is generally known as a scam?
Just curious. . . .
