It can't hurt to have the superbowl champion quarterback on your team.

3.46 million is a pretty good haul for not being a presidential canidate yet. Good job, Team FRed!

is $2300 a limit of some sort - would have been more logical at $2000 or $2500

Wonder if Richard Wolfe is a Republican or if he is giving to both sides? Could have fooled me with some of the episodes of L&O.

It’s an assumption on my part, but I’ll bet Wolfe gives more to Dems. I interpret his donation as a show of respect for Thompson—even if he is lazy.

"Former Sen. Howard H. Baker, gave $2,300."

Oh yes... Of course... The very same Hard (Howard with a TN accent) Baker that called Ronald Reagan's tax cuts "a riverboat gamble!" Phhhhhhhhhhht!!!

I know, I know, but hey! Duncan Hunter is barely conservative enough for me!!!

After Arnoiled Shortsnicker, (Maria's sex slave) I cannot trust Repellican celebrity candidates who are un-candid!!!

As long as Howard is just a donor, no big thing. It will be interesting to see him form his policy teams though

Well I sure don't like that Abram dude from Michagan on his team one bit!!! No sir!!! Not one little tiny bit!!! If he's gonna start puttin soft on terrorism, one-world/no borders A-Rabs from Ypsilanti of Arab America in his policy positions, then I'm given ol Fred a really wide berth!!!

Mind you, that's NOT because of the natural nationalities, but strictly due to the actions and policies!!!

It’s the gubmint. There are rooms filled with people of marginal mental acuity and stability who get paid vast sums of money to come up with inane and cumbersome figures to be inflicted upon the citizenry. Just look at any tax form.

Not unless we bring our feelings about it to his attention rather forcefully and quickly!!! As Barney Fife said:"We gotta nip this in the bud, Andy!"

Hey! If'n ya don't tell 'em, how they gonna know? (even when it's obvious they already knew better) They always wanna stack the deck so they can claim they've patronized each and every element of the political spectrum and I think that's just plain BOGUS!!!

Damn CFR2

(CFR1 is Council on Foreign Relations, CFR2 is Campaign Finance Reform)

Fred is doomed.

OK actually I don’t remember if that limit is tied to CFR2, but since letting fact get in the way of a good rant seems so out of fashion with the Antifredites, I figure what the hell...
