Sheldon Adelson Crazy, Also Crazy Rich


Right-wing casino magnate Sheldon Adelson has already pledged a $10 million check to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, but he apparently regards that as sofa change, and may spend several times that much. Why? Because of the socialism:

Adelson, this source continues, believes that “no price is too high” to protect the U.S. from what he sees as Obama’s “socialization” of America, as well as securing the safety of Israel.

The story notes that Adelson "ironically, has made more money during the Obama administration than just about any other American." Some would argue that a man worth $25 billion and rising, who is planning to deploy his enormous fortune to wield massive influence over the electoral system, is itself strong evidence that socialism is not, in fact, at hand.
