President Bill Clinton

I don't think his position on this issue surprises anyone - I wonder what his speaking fee was...

As Super PACs and corporate special interests line up to pour money into the dishonest campaign for Prop 32</>

What is surprising though, is that rhetoric like "line up to pour money into" is at all taken seriously when the target is getting outspent 5-to-1 ($45 mil to $9 mil as of 10/1). Since RustyMath posted his link on 9/17, the intervening two weeks saw all of $200,000 donated to Yes, while $8 freaking million was donated to No. That's 40-to-1! And the Yes side are the ones "lining up to pour money into" the campaign? <eyeroll>

Where are the Prop 32 opponents getting all this money, I wonder?

JT,
wait, no I don't
