Sheldon Adelson, who single-handedly bankrolled Newtie’s campaign, has now turned his affections to Mitt. Adelson is determined to do what it takes to defeat President Obama. And when you’re worth $25 billion, “what it takes” isn’t just some empty boast.
He’s already given $10 million to Mitt’s SuperPAC, but Adelson’s “people” are saying we ain’t seen nothin’ yet. They say he’s planning “limitless” donations. Limitless here might mean more than $100 million.
I like the First Amendment as much as the next person, but this is seriously messed up.
A little irony here — Mormons are opposed to gambling, but Mitt might get to the White House thanks to casino money.
Actually, the three of them will be campaigning together in Las Vegas next week. Just the thought of the three of them together gives me a headache. It’s a too muchness reminiscent of when Barbra Streisand, Judy Garland, and Ethel Merman were on TV together on Judy’s old show. But if it sounds like your idea of a fun time, a minimum of $2500 will get you in.
Mitt is also offering the chance to win a dinner with him and the Donald in New York if you make a donation to his campaign. Isn’t that against Mormon rules, aren’t raffles a form of gambling? They haven’t set a date for that yet, but whenever it is, I’m pretty sure I have to do laundry that night.
