People like this guy were right and I was way wrong.
Via Sketch, here are the words of Wilton Vought written in August 2008:
"Anyone who succeeds in becoming the presumptive Presidential nominee of either corporate party does so only with the blessing of the corporate interests who run those parties.
"Expecting a front man for such interests to be a catalyst for substantive progressive change is akin to believing in Santa Claus. Fine for the kids, but it's time to grow up."
I believed in Santa Claus until Honduras. More fool me.
