 Adios, Duncan Hunter

Adios, Duncan Hunter. I feel so guilty. If only I had been able to work with him before he quit the Republican Presidential race.

I feel so guilty. If only I’d had time to advise Tom earlier. I have been helping candidates find alternative ways to raise money. Money, Lifeblood of Democracy.

I also know our nation’s vital broadcasting, newspaper, robo-telephone and direct mail industries depend on the billions of campaign dollars sluicing through them under the delusion that voters care about this stuff.
