"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
24% of the GOP think there should be more women in Congress, 65%-70% of Democrats do, and only 25% of GOP women think there should be more women.

Or are the GOP just innately catty, whether they are women or not?
They just can't pay their tellers enough to stay off of welfare. Maybe billion dollar bonuses have something to do with it.

I've heard Thom touch very breifly on the topic of virtual currency in our political campaign finance apparatus. The Conservative Action Fund pushed the FEC for clarifications on laws surrounding Bitcoin contributions and got a mixed reaction. The U.S. Senate hearing presented the idea that Bitcoins are basically free of regulation.
The IRS has CONFIRMED Coin PAC - a virtual currency PAC that could target political leaders that want to regulate this type of currency. What should happen!
