Squirrel Hat Lady PAC advocates repeal of the estate tax

-Headline of the Day-
"Why Super PAC Names Make No Sense."

It's a pretty simple explanation -- there are like a billion of them. Most you'll never hear of, but several can't have the same name. So if it's cool -- or even remotely sensible -- it's taken. So, if you want to get into the Super PAC game, you're probably going to have to settle for something along the lines of "Pancake Sombrero PAC."

Take, for example, a certain latecomer named Mittens Romney. "We gave our lawyer 10 more names. Then like 50. We're literally trying every combination of whatever," says former Obama aide Bill Burton, explaining how Team Obama got stuck with the boring Priorities USA Action. "You can't come up with a name that has the word 'future' in it that the Republicans don't control. Romney's Restore Our Future -- that doesn't even make sense, and that's probably why they were able to get it."

Of course, you wonder if anyone on Team Romney knows it doesn't make any sense. After all, his economic policy is gibberish too, but none of them seems to have realized it. (Political Wire)
