We Got Free Speech Yes We Do; We Got Free Speech How 'Bout You?

Yesterday turned into an energized afternoon at Camp-Pain Deep Pockets when the cross-river rivals, Camp Nussle and Camp Culver, announced the results of their campaign fundraising drive to help energize Iowa. Camp Culver took round two, raising $1,404,729.59 to Camp Nussle’s $450,248.97. Upon hearing the news, Camp Culver exercised its right to free speech by aligning the muddied river bank and began slinging boyhood taunts at their rivals across the river. Camp Nussle held its ground and returned fire. Here’s a transcription of yesterday’s spirited event:

Camp Culver: We got free speech yes we do; we got free speech, how ‘bout you!?

Camp Nussle: We got free speech yes we do; we got free speech, how ‘bout you!?

Camp Culver: We got free speech yes we do; we got free speech, how ‘bout you!?

Camp Nussle: We got free speech yes we do; we got free speech, how ‘bout you!?

Camp Culver: We got free speech yes we do; we got free speech, how ‘bout you!?

Camp Nussle: We got free speech yes we do; we got free speech, how ‘bout you!?

Camp Culver: We got free speech yes we do; we got free speech, how ‘bout you!?

Camp Nussle: We got the most! We got the most! We got the most! We got the most!...

Jimmy the Hustler: God I love free speech: Priceless.


The Straight Dope: Get the spin from Camp Nussle: "Thousands of Individual Iowans Support Jim Nussle," and Camp Culver: "Culver Announces Fundraising Success". Or you can read the breakdown in the Political Forecast or The Des Moines Register.

Clever, yet subtle (or not, depending on how you look at it).

What can we do to fix the current equation: money = voice in the political process? After this race is over, let's roll up our sleeves and get to work on passing clean elections laws.

When was the Nussle/Bush fundraiser? Wasn't that this quarter. They said they estimated $1m for that event alone didnt they?
