At spending-per-voter.

Thanks to a handy new chart from the Sunlight Foundation, it’s easy to see exactly how pricey the election was for the congressional candidates who spent the most money per eligible voter and vote during the 2012 cycle.

The chart features 20 congressional candidates who spent at least $35 per vote and includes the amount each one spent per eligible voter:

    I "had" a friend from St. Cloud. Degree in water science, but he still bought a "machine" that when hooked up to your car it was supposed to run it gas free on "generated electricity from the air." No matter what any of us said he went ahead and bought it. Guess what, it didn't work--but somebody made a few hundred . He then became a member of "The Patriots" (former Wisconsin posse comitatus). His land had signs warning that federal officials trespassing would be shot on sight.

    There is something in the water in St. Cloud.
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    There is a prison as well, according to one of my favorite Dylan songs.

    Do they also have mental institutions that were emptied by raygun in the eighties? That would explain a few things.

    St Cloud is missing the boat

    that place should be closed and then rented out to film makers ... it would make the town and the state a buzziolion bucks ... that's how ominous it looks

    St. Cloud isn't "missing the boat." They have a boat...with one oar.
