Buying the election...

OK, so Obama has broken fundraising records. Not just broken, smashed them.

The latest Republican cry is that he's buying the election.

But who is buying the election? Obama has absurdly large amounts of cash on hand, true. His average donation, though, is $84. Yep, all those hundreds of millions that he's raised comes out to $84/person. If he's buying the election, he's buying it retail.

That's a lot better for the country than the fat-cat large-donor "buy it wholesale" that the Republicans have attempted in previous election seasons.
