Fabulously Wealthy Anti-PAC Democrat Donates to Ready for Hillary PAC, Plays Dumb

This man widely hailed as a genius feigns ignorance, naturally, when called on it.

Billionaire Warren Buffett, a vocal opponent of super-PACs, said he cut a $25,000 check to super-PAC Ready for Hillary last year because he didn’t know it was one.

Oh, OK.

Ready for Hillary is a group designed to lay the groundwork for a possible Hillary Clinton presidential run in 2016. Some noted Buffet’s donation was at odds with his historic opposition to super-PACs.

Someone pretends to not believe in something and it’s historic. A rather low bar to make history.

“It’s a good one, because I did not know it was a super-PAC. They had a maximum — which was $25,000 — I think of super-PACs as these things with hundreds of thousands or millions in them,” he told CNN’s Poppy Harlow in an interview published online on Thursday.

“I am not for super-PACs, but it’s absolutely true that I contributed $25,000 dollars which I later found out was [to] a super-PAC,” he said.

No word if he’s asking for the money back.  Meanwhile, the Washington Post is outraged over presidential candidates who “mock” campaign finance laws, but fail to mention Granny Clinton.

We have a sense how the 2016 election cycle will play out. Much like 2008 and 2012 before it.

Note the words super PAC.
