From the Sunday Times

I’m a big fan of the Sunday Times – there’s just so much in there! Here’s a few snippets that’ll probably only be available for the next few days..

And lots, lots more to read..

kerry’s doing fine. due to us campaign finance laws coupled with the date of the rnc, kerry only spent $10 million in august – bush spent several times that. to make a comparison, each candidate in the irish elections will spend around $250k or more in the month of the election. ireland is around 100 times smaller than ireland population-wise and at least that geographically – so that $250k in ireland is at least $25 million.

so couple bush’s bounce from the convention with the lopsided spending, kerry is doing fine. they’re trading leads in the electoral college.

as for the ssia – do both! they meet two different needs. one does long-term, one does short/medium-term.
