And while we're having fun

One time Gore campaign chairman, Tony Coehlo, had a public rant yesterday about the confusion at Lurch HQ. Aside from the slapstick comedy there was this line:
“Here are two groups that have never gotten along and have fought, and it is a lot over money,” says Coehlo. "Because in the Democratic Party the consultants get paid for the creation and the placement of [advertising]. Republicans only pay you for the creation.”
Hmmm, why does that sound familiar? I know! It's because that while Howard Dean's campaign went down the toilet, his campaign manager, Joe Trippi, made out like a bandit. And he worked without salary too, just like some of Lurch's new pals. Why does "the party of the people" always come up with these kinds of innovations?
