Steal this primary
The Washington Post reports that South Carolina Democrats are considering allowing coporate sponsorship of the state's Feb. 3 primary. My feeling is that this proposal is so patently ludicrous that it doesn't really need a good thrashing. But if they're going to bring the corporations in, why not take things to the logical extreme and allow each candidate to be sponsored by a different company or union? "You're in good hands with Allstate -- and with Joe Lieberman!"

South Carolina apparently makes the parties fund their own primaries. Democrats are an endangered species in the South. Does anyone else see a problem here?
