An Indecent Proposal

Warning: Not safe for work. Or for Republicans.

Sarah Silverman has an indecent proposal for casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. That’s right, the man who has pledged at least $100 million to defeat Obama (John McCain claims that it is foreign money).

For more information, see

UPDATE: Also, you might be wondering why Sheldon Adelson has already thrown more money into the presidential election than anyone else, and has even said that the amount of money he will dump on the election is “unlimited”. It is because he is being investigated for gross violations of the law. Even according to memos written by his own lawyers, it is likely that he is guilty. So, simply put, it looks like Sheldon Adelson is simply buying himself a new justice department and a get out of jail free card.

This is what American politics has come to, as the direct result of the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court. Our presidential election is being bought, using foreign money largely gained by violating the law. A deluge of money that is being spent to elect Mitt Romney and other Republicans.

    A sad look at how ridiculous it has become… $4.7 million wouldn’t even make the news this election cycle.
