America Falling Apart

Per the Washington Post, George Soros founded-and-funded 527 "America Coming Together," is disbanding. All I can do is laugh:

A year ago, the liberal group America Coming Together was on the cutting edge of national politics, spending tens of millions of dollars on a massive voter-mobilization project in every presidential battleground state.

The dream was that ACT -- heavily funded by billionaire George Soros -- would play a decisive role in getting Democratic nominee John F. Kerry elected president and then remain in business as a permanent force in liberal politics.

Steve Rosenthal, who launched America Coming Together to mobilize voters for Democrat John F. Kerry, said maintaining momentum after the election proved to be harder than expected. Billionaire George Soros's heavy funding of the group ended after the election.

Instead, the group this week began sending e-mails to most of the 28 people who make up the remaining ACT staff warning that their paychecks would stop at the end of August. All the state offices have been, or are soon to be, closed.

In the immortal words of Glenn Reynolds, "Heh!"

UPDATE: Byron York's take on the collapse of the Soros brain-child includes one of the best lines ever. In summary: Soros and all his colleagues had spent $200 million to elect a Democratic secretary of state in Missouri.

If it were a fight they'd stop it.
