The Panic O FMD Junior

Ace of Spades HQ: "This is bad because conservative Super PAC money is a threat to democracy! Negative ads should never be paid for by third-party donors with legal donations. Democracy can only survive when negative ads are purchased with unverified credit card donations, some of which may have illegally come from non-citizens.

Aside from enjoying the schadenbonery goodness of this, there are two things we can take away from the story: 1) Obama is now having to build and maintain a large paid network this year, meaning he's spending money for people to do work that was done willingly by enthusiastic volunteers four years ago and 2) The Obama campaign is much more worried about fundraising than they're letting on and feel the need to instill some panic into their donor base this early. Either way, this news and the Obama campaign response is another sign that this isn't 2008 and Mitt Romney is no John McCain."
FMD Junior you ask? If this was a story about Mitt Romney's mother do you think you would be able to miss it?

Good God.
