This couldn’t be happening to a nicer bunch of  schmucks  fearmongers. Since they can’t buy their way into office or around Capital Hill now, it’s time the close up shop. What no more weapons of mass distraction? You have to admit they could swiftboat  a war like no one else, heck  Ari Fleischer’s was their captain. At the beginning of the 2008 campaign season he said, “The cavalry is coming, we’re going to help to get that message out” and get the message out they did, the GOP lost how many house and senate seats? But anyway I have to give them credit for one thing they were good at getting their GOP cronies work  and thus redistributed a lot of Republican wealth. Too bad for them the cats out of the bag.

A once-vaunted independent organization that was supposed to help Republicans make up severe fundraising shortfalls is closing after just one cycle in business.

Freedom’s Watch, the 501(c)(4) organization that ran advertisements slamming Democratic candidates, will effectively shut down by the end of the year, according to a source with knowledge of the plans.

Freedom’s Watch was supposed to be a major player, with planners budgeting as much as $200 million for ad campaigns. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and its chairman, Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), warned for nearly two years of an impending and unprecedented spending spree on behalf of Republican candidates.

That spree never emerged. In total, Freedom’s Watch spent about $30 million on television spots, though it would not reveal how much it spent on phones and mail, neither of which must be reported to the Federal Election Commission.

Thank God fear no longer sells in the U.S. and I hope what comes around continues to go around when it comes to Freedom Watch and it’s members. Karma it’s a patriotic thing and good riddance.
