Red States != Welfare States

Note: For those who don't know != means "not equal."

Someone finally followed up on Mr. O'Donnell's claims that Blue States are the producers and Red States are welfare states. In this excellent Chicago Tribune article, Meg Kreikemeier takes both Mr. O'Donnell and Mr. Howard Dean to task for making unsubstantiated, right-bashing claims. Included in the article is this little gem:

For several years, two organizations have been researching political contributions and found interesting statistics. The Center for Political Integrity and the Center for Responsive Politics found similar patterns in political contributions; that Republicans receive contributions from many small donors and Democrats rely on unions and the wealthy.

It's good stuff.
