Death by Triage

It's been recently reported that the Obama money won't be finding its way to Congressional contests. Given that money is the lifeblood of politics, Obama is putting a fork in Democracy. It didn't have to be this way. By ignoring the 2010 election, he gave the Right Wingnuts all the opening they needed. I guess it's just pure ego.

I'm of two minds about how this affects a Triage system. On the one hand, with less money, and no co-ordination among the White House, DNC and congressional election committees, Triage might not be worth the effort. On the other hand, with less money, but with willing co-operation among DNC and all others but the WH, Triage may be more important than ever.

Sigh. I do wish they'd call.
