heap big topping

indian giver!

When my campaign team planned our final budget, we knew our Get Out the Vote push was going to be BIG.

But it was far bigger than anyone ever expected…

For example, we knew we would have to buy a LOT of coffee and pizza all across the Commonwealth for our volunteers. After all, we’ve been proud beyond words to have one of the scrappiest, toughest grassroots armies ever assembled in Massachusetts or even the country — and a grassroots army moves on coffee and pizza…

But one of the results of our embarrassment of riches was, well I’ll come out and say it — we ended up with a little bit of debt… we need a little more money to pay off our final bills. Can you help one more time?

The Boston Globe reported Wednesday that the Warren campaign’s current deficit is well into six figures

wedgie ( from comments at the link ) :

She didn’t go into debt herself–others helped her do that: the people who made the pizzas, the ones who rolled the dough, harvested the coffee beans, drove late-night eats to the campaign offices, paved the roads…she had help going into debt. No one goes broke by themselves.

bonus fun fact:
Warren raised $42 million dollars for her 2012 campaign, which is more than any other candidate for congress raised…

    That women is going to fork up the Senate soooooo bad. Remember the hard time she gave to the Repubs on one of the committee meetings was supposed to testify? What a bitch. It is going to be hell on wheels and the Senators are going to wish they had been honest with the electorate. This country has been heavily screwed by ‘both sides of the isle.’

    You just ain’t seen nothing yet.

    Given $42 million to run a campaign and still ended up in debt?

    Forget the Senate – Zero should make her Treasury Secretary. She’s perfect for the job.

    Looks like lots owners of pizzerias, restaurants and coffee joints (i.e. small businesses) are about to get stiffed by this dingbat. That won’t make paying their increased taxes any easier.

    I laughed when I saw teriyaki pemmican on sale at the local supermarket. Apache Pizza must be the red man’s revenge for that perversion of diversity.

    Scott Brown learned a lesson too late. He went a little too far proggiebot and lost all the people who bought into his shit—–that got him elected. You got to know you ain`t the sharpest pencil when a fucking fauxahontis easily tromps your schtick! I am sooooo tired of The Stupid Party acts of sheer stupidity. But mostly, I hate them allowing the RATz to commit flagerant acts of illegal shit without so much as using the easy retorts they are handed on a sliver platter by these criminals. All it does is convince me that the Senate is a club of good ole boys that have forgotten they are supposed to have The People`s Interests as their only and primary mission in life!!!!

    The silly bastards we call politicians have a different perspective on debt when their name is on the line.

    I say they file bankruptcy, allow the poor suckers that believed they’d be paid to only collect pennies on the dollar and see how the system actually works.

    It’s all about trust and only fools trust politicians.

    I am impressed.

    I mean, the brazenness and ingratitude it takes to blame her debt on the gluttony of her volunteer campaign workers.

    The degree of insult she heaps on everyone who hears or reads that (and expected to swallow it) is truly amazing.

    ” … the Senate is a club of good ole boys that have forgotten they are supposed to have The People`s Interests as their only and primary mission in life …”

    With due respect, Col, Senators aren’t supposed to represent The People’s interests. They are supposed to represent their State’s interests.

    The Founders set things up so there’d be two Senators per state regardless of size or population. That way, all States would be equally represented and the bigger States couldn’t ride rough-shod over the smaller ones. (Same reasoning behind the Electoral College). And that’s why Senators were originally appointed by the State governments (either by the Governor or by the Legislature – however each State wanted to run things). It made the Senators beholden to the State as a whole and not to the fickle voters.

    That’s why the 17th Amendment was such a mistake – it took away one of the protections built in to prevent the tyranny of the majority that you’re seeing now.

    LotF,
    Amen.
    One quibble: the Electoral College only protects against runaway popular-vote fraud. The big-population States still can run rough-shod over the small-population States, as can the House.
    (What? No, I ain’t sure, but it’s what I think. When have I ever been wrong? I mean besides those times.)
