Cruzin' For Unlimited Cash

Ted Cruz was busy in NH over the weekend. At one event he was working hard to ensure that a  three year old grows up to become a Democrat. 

Cruz thinks there should be no limits  on political cash: 

Unlimited political cash would give rank-and-file conservative activists greater sway in picking their representatives, including the president..

So people who don't have lots of money would benefit from not having lots of money? Huh? 

Cruz, a first-term senator who represents Texas, said deep-pocketed donors should have the same rights to write giant campaign checks as voters have to put signs in their front yards. Both, Cruz said, were an example of political speech, and he added that “money absolutely can be speech”.

Because everybody knows that folks who put signs in their yards have exactly the same clout as big donors!

Unbelievable and yet another pathetic example of how the right is not only out of touch, but out of brains. It isn't enough that they have the koch (or is it koch up) money extraordinaire backing each candidate every step of the way. Greed personified. And no, my lawn sign doesn't get me what their big money gets them.
