    •  It's not quite that simple. Almost. (7+ / 0-)

      Bribes and blackmail:

      And keep in mind that threats to staffers are ultimately more important than hammering the elected Members.

      Staffers have no job security.

      "Horse-head" refers to the Godfather movies. A nasty primary opponent with money is a "horse-head" in yer bed.

      Powell Systems operations are the horde of "non-profit" Think Tank and propaganda mills that serve the billionaires.

      "1%squared" is the right figure.

      It was more like 1 in 10,000,000 for the 2012 election.
