Ack - formatting fail, what I get for not previewing...

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?

wait, no I don't
