Dirty Sexy Money!
The goody-two shoes Republican party is attempting to prove that some of Obama's record-shattering $458 million campaign fund is coming from illegal sources. Ooooooh, dirty money. Sounds sexy!
The GOP is asking the Federal Election Commission to look into allegations that Mr. squeaky clean Obama is actually taking in money from some less-than-scrupulous sources. Because nobody out-illegals the Republicans, damn it!
RNC Chief Counsel Sean Cairncross alleges that "the Obama campaign was so hungry for donations it 'looked the other way' as contributions piled up from suspicious, and possibly even illegal foreign donors."
"We believe that the American people should know first and foremost if foreign money is pouring into a presidential election."
We couldn't agree more. Which is why we're so happy that McCain's campaign was so nobly forced to refund some $50,000 in donations solicited by Jordanian Mustafa Abu Naba'a, who helped raise money on behalf of one of McCain's top Florida contributors.
I mean the very idea that the presidential campaigns would accept any currency aside from the good ole American greenback is just absurd. What's next? Accepting cash payments in Euros? Rupees? Yen? Monopoly money? (Actually, we hear it's worth more than the dollar these days.)
Why don't we just put a big 'for sale' sign on America? Because, we already sold all our sign supplies to China, silly! They even agreed to throw in the toxic lead at no extra charge...can you say bargain?
