Pricetag on Political Conventions

So according to CNN, guess what the combined pricetag of the Democratic and Republican National Conventions was for this year?

Over 100 million. About 110 million to be precise.

Wow. Most of that paid for by major corporations, much of which occurs in the "grey" zone of the Campaign Finance Reform new rules.

Seems a bit out of whack if you ask me. Maybe all of the different signs that are used each night are made with rare paper from the deeps of the Tanzania forests or something.....

If you were given 100 million, what would you do?
