Huffington poster's ignorant response to my column about Obama contributors

Here is a response from some character on the Huffington Post to my column on Obama's campaign contributors. Obviously, he didn't check out the source of my figures, so I'll have to do it for him. If he has a whine about the figures regarding the "industries" that have donated to Obama, he should take it up with OpenSecrets.org, from the Center for Responsive Politics, a non-partisan Washington-based organization, recognized for its fair-handed treatment of all candidates. Look here for its explanation of the data that I cited.

Dennis,

Interesting reaction you get for daring to question Sen. Obama.

I wonder what pct of the small donors actually just bought a button, vs. the massive money brought in to the Obama campaign by Soros, Buffet, Penny Pritzker etc.
