119. Only problem with that: meg whitman.

Madame Ebay outspent Jerry Brown for CA governor by a factor of I think 12-to-1. The results were: congratulations Governor Brown!

So nobody with the big bucks learned anything from that lesson. I imagine since their behavioral pattern defaults on willful, even proud, ignorance, chronic denial, and a tendency to deflect blame onto the opponent and not accept responsibility for what they enable, they might default on all those things yet again. As in "we weren't _______ enough!" I bet a huge cross-section of them will be led by the "not CONservative enough" because they simply won't get that America is NOT as hysterically reactionary as they are. They WON'T get that. They WON'T take delivery on that. Anymore than any of them now will take delivery on the idea that you can't balance any kind of budget if you refuse to raise taxes while also refusing to cut what's popular while also refusing to put the Pentagon on a diet. Who wants to take delivery on the idea that what you believe in is not popular? Or is racist? Or is utterly stupid and not based on fact? WHILE at the same time you're being constantly media-massaged and propagandized that you're okay and that shit ideology of yours is just magic-underwear wonderful and freedomy-freedomy and free markety-free markety.

I'm guessing most of them are still thinking THIS time it'll work. And they're not ready to give up just yet. They'll go down fighting.

We are NOT dealing with a mass of people who are grown-up enough to concede, willingly, that they were wrong and their ideas and world view all SUCK. Most of them will go to their graves firmly convicted they were "right." Souls CAN be saved. And there's no reason not to try. But not every soul is salvageable.
