Truest statement of the week II

That Super PAC, officially known as “Onward Together”, is a terrible idea that no one wants, so of course, it’s the perfect next act in Hillary Clinton’s never-ending tragicomedy of errors.
For one thing, the notion that pouring millions of big-donor dollars into politics is what the country needs is proof-positive that Hillary and her clique still haven’t learned a thing from their resounding defeat.

The long-held progressive critique of Super PACs–that they’re vehicles for corruption and the erosion of American democracy by a loose affiliation of millionaires and billionaires–has become a super-majoritarian opinion held by voters across the partisan and ideological divide.
