Kind of sad for them. Why? Because McCain is not going to be our next President. I'm sorry. President Obama will be our next resident of the White House. Too bad for donor's to the McCain campaign.

What local corporation hasn't made biggest donations/sponsorships at nationally televised events? I'd be more interested in the individuals (CEO, executive management) and THEIR contributions to the RNC.

Poor twitching liberal Tom Webb. He thinks if he changes the headline and removes the previous comments, he has scored one for the Obama/Frankens of the world.

From this "balanced" story we know that NO companies in MN donated money to the liberals or democrats, right?
