- The Washington Times - Monday, June 12, 2006

In Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, Tim Russert is in the Letters section (scroll down) with a passionate complaint about being mischaracterized by Deborah Solomon in her May 14 “Questions” column.

With that caveat in my mind, I direct you to Solomon’s most recent column, with anti-Bush hedge fund gazillionaire George Soros as its subject.

Soros tells Solomon — do I detect a hint of disappointment? — that “You can’t buy the elections.” It certainly wasn’t for a lack of trying: Earlier Soros copped to having spent “something like $27.5 million” during the 2004 election cycle.

Hey, wasn’t McCain-Feingold supposed to solve that problem?

And why haven’t we heard from the more-butter-less-guns crowd about how many hungry mouths $27.5 million could feed?
