What with all the chatter about Obama suddenly reversing his position and encouraging people to donate to his Super PAC, I decided to take a quick peek at who was running it.
Looking at the numbers, it looks like they each made about $70,000.00 in salary for the period from July through December, and probably got their health insurance paid on top of that. No biggie, really - I'm all about the free market.
But another name caught my eye: CNN host Paul Begala. Since July, Begala has earned $160,000.00 (plus another $13,000 in travel expenses) in consulting fees from Obama's Super PAC. Which might be surprising to CNN, because their Begala web page makes this statement:
Uhm, yeah. No conflict there, because Obama's Super PAC totally isn't a candidate's committee. Right?
