    Make of it what you will (or won’t).

    (This graph originally appeared in a post of the same name at the same time as the others. My accompanying sarcasm isn’t worth repeating, and thus Donna’s comment asking for clarification won’t be either.)

    It would be interesting to see how the number 2 spender’s contributions have grown over the same time-frame. My sense (based in part on the number of pieces of electoral spam showing up in my snail mail) is that political spending of all kinds is way up this year.

    I imagine that all the spenders’ growth rates are approximately the same over time, save for the new one started by Rove. In the past, the US Chamber has given about 40% of its contributions to Democrats, but haven’t seen anything about what that percentage is this cycle.
