Carly Fiorina and Barbara Boxer, Think We Care Whether You Approved Your Campaign Ads?

Republicans are rushing an additional $4.8 million to Carly Fiorina's campaign for the California Senate. She's spent at least $14.6 million according to OpenSecrets.org.

Big spending is not the exclusive domain of Republicans. Fiorina's opponent, Barbara Boxer, has spent even more—$16.8 million so far.

When will the lunacy stop?

It seems to me our elected officials fall into one of four categories: 1) Wall Street money; 2) Hollywood money; 3) hi-tech money; and 4) personalities that don't need money or want to make it with a tell-all book deal. Isn't there a candidate in Delaware who once professed to be a witch?

  

There are a few "crossover" candidates. But I'm not sure it helps to be wealthy and a personality. How are things working out for you in New York, Carl Paladino?

Carly and Barbara, want to make a difference?

Get attention, lots of it, by doing something good for California. By my calculations, your combined expenditures will pay annual salaries for 478 teachers in your state. Maybe there's a more productive way to spend your campaign dollars.

Hmmm…. I wonder what John McCain is doing in Arizona.
