So it turns out that Harold Clark Simmons –an old, rich, white guy– has donated $18 million towards beating Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election. He calls Obama “the most dangerous American alive.”
Is there no passage in Art of War that describes an outsized reaction to an enemy? Doesn’t Simmons’ enormous donation(s) put Obama in a more positive light by demonstrating just how far the upperclass fringe will go to get rid of him?
Or, consider this angle… as a succussful businessman, Simmons considers an enormous donation to the Republican party to be a smart investment. One that will return significant dividends in only 4 years.
Eighteen million dollars just lying around, available to affect the outcome of democratic elections. No red flags there, Supreme Court.
