Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes

I don't get what the big deal is. This is campaign money, right? You don't get to stop eating, drinking, dressing and talking on the phone because you're trying to get elected - these things still need to be paid for. I think if people contribute money to an election campaign, they realize they are giving that money away to be used by the campaign however they need to use it. If it were taxpayer money, that would be a problem, but this just seems to be a non-issue.Nothing helps a bad mood like spreading it around.

I think it's easy to look at the campaign money for a politician who raises millions of dollars a month trying to get elected and find little things you may not agree with. I'll bet if you looked at every cent raised by McCain and Obama, you'd find a lot of money spent on junk like cigarettes, soda, magazines, etc.
The way I see it, the candidates get to keep whatever money they don't spend at the end of the campaign (right?). Maybe if they had to donate the left over money to charity, I'd be angry to know that McCain spent $500 on silly string and pork rinds when he could have saved a few panda bears. As it stands, I'm really not bothered.Nothing helps a bad mood like spreading it around.

Bottom line: it's campaign money, not tax dollars. People voluntarily gave this money to the candidates. Bitch all you want about it, there's nothing wrong with it.
