What we need are conservative "527" groups.

It will be nice to see Bush win and think of all the millions these people have flushed down the toilet - or rather, the John.

they cannot support a candidate directly or coordinate their efforts with a candidate’s campaign.

I wonder what would constitute proof of "coordination"? A common objective? A synchronized marketing strategy? Quite an ambiguous word there.

"This reclusive 50-year-old daughter of Robert Pritzker is heir to a good portion of the Hyatt hotel fortune, estimated at $15 billion total."

No more lodging there for my family.

I thought this blew up months ago when the Kerry Campaign was ALREADY caught coordinating efforts with MoveOn.

The $50 million Dems - wealthy funders of progressive ‘527’ groups

THE DEMS’ DIRTY DOZEN: 1) Peter B. Lewis, Chair, Progressive Corp., Cleveland, Ohio

[Contributed] $14,030,000 to [left wing] 527s

Lewis is chair of Progressive Corp., the automobile-insurance company...

No conservative should do business with Progressive Auto Insurance. Ever. Cancel your policy and go elsewhere.

I did, and am saving about 40% with another auto insurance company. Fortunately, I had heard about the Progressive poobah's leftist leanings on a previous FR thread. Thank you FR!

" Yet with the exception of financier George Soros, who has contributed a total of $12,481,250 in the past year and a half and who has been called to task in no uncertain terms by the GOP, they remain surprisingly unknown to the public and uncovered by the media.

I'm not surprised. Are you surprised?

If only we had listened to Mitch McConnell.

Okay, so he's not the ideal spokesman for the GOP, but the guy was on the money when it came to this issue.

What irks me is that the right still plays by Queensbury rules both at home and aborad. Every time they kick us in the nuts we smile and say now that's not nice. Instead we ought to go by Chicago rules, "they bring a knife, you bring a gun". The guys who run the RNC and coinservatives in genereal still can't seem to bring themselves to take off the gloves.

Exactly!

"The Untouchables" is a great analogy.

These guys are patterning themselves after Al Capone, while we're modeling our strategy not after his counterpart, Eliot Ness, but after the Marquis de Queensbury.

Something has to change if the GOP expects to actually win this thing, instead of being bloodied by a group that doesn't play by the same rulebook.
