  •  It makes one wince: $1 Billion wasted on a (4+ / 0-)

      if it alerts people to the fact that a handful of rich bastards were trying to buy our country, and failed, so be on the lookout in case they try it again.

      It also means at least some of that money out of the bastards' pockets and into the economy.

        rich bastards were trying to buy our country...and a good many of them not only didn't care, but applauded.  The whole idea that a BILLION dollars are spent on one political event is offensive--and most of it 'dark money' that is deposited into unknown coffers and spent/saved for negative ads in other downticket elections--and mindboggling.  Sure, "some" of that money went back into the economy, but how much is the question.  It appears to me that the con's far outweigh the pro's.
