I didn't say I support it, but your bulb is getting brighter. You're pretty
much right about the money. You see how the politicians are selling their
souls for campaign contributions? The TV networks and the newspapers are not
allowed to provide candidates with free advertising.

The bandwagon effect is exactly what the politicians want. When I ran for
city council with some friends, our party didn't have much cash. We spent
about $1,000 for yard signs. We learned later that the mayor's party spent
$8,000 for theirs. I've already described that mayor to this list, but as
reminder, he grew up on the same block and went to grade school with
hizzoner. 'Nuff sed.
Yesterday you made yard signs sound like a good thing, and said if I was
more involved, I would have understood the benefits of them. Today you
sound a bit bitter that you got beat because someone else had more yard
signs. If you support this bandwagon effect, then the politician with the
most money is going to win, right?
