You are completely right. But wouldn't you think that as conservatives we could sneak in and buy another network or newspaper or something somewhere? I would have gladly seen Romney buy NBC or something. It amazes me that we don't bother to control more media.
To me there is only one reason. Our republican leadership is not interested in conservative views or even getting some more control over what people see. That must means just one thing. They are also not conservative, are they? The answer is exactly that obvious. They only want it to look like a contest. They share the same goals, but they like for us to think of it as a contest.
