The $64,000 Question

DL must be the highest individual spender in GE 2011, with $64,000 just for his campaign expenses alone.

It’s heartening to note that at least one “opp” politician takes campaign spending seriously.

I think more money should have been spent on things other than nicely-designed posters and banners.

Like public speaking and presentation skills claases. Like strategy advisors, PR managers, market researchers and campaign planners. Like speechwriters, website designers, webmasters, twitterers and facebook administrators.

And if you move back one step, money should have been spent to develop the party in the first place. Why would anyone in his right mind vote SDA in its present state?

Too bad the money was wasted on an unelectable candidate from an unelectable party.

Oh well, here’s looking forward to 2016!
