No, not steal elections. Simply buy. Political advertising on TV is banned most European countries. Heaven forfend that Congress should deprive the networks of hundreds of millions in ad revenue, but is it not We the People who own the airwaves? If Obama is elected, he might look to restoring the FCC to its original strength. If the Dems end up controlling both houses by wide margins, they could ban political advertising on TV... but where would that leave them?
