The Huffington Post has secured $25 million in venture capital from Oak Investment Partners to help expand its Liberal media agenda. Fred Harman, managing partner of Oak Investment, will join the Huffington Post's board.
Mr. Harman donated $2,300 to Mitt Romney's Presidential campaign in January of 2007.
So why has he suddenly decided to hook up with the Liberal Huffington Post? Well, perhaps he's planning on using his financial clout to transform the HuffPo into a semi-conservative blog. Or, he's simply decided to sell out his soul to the devil for financial gain.
I have a feeling it's the latter........
Update: Apparently, Mr. Harman contributed $4,600 to Barack Obama in February of 2007 [or June of 2007]. $2,300 was eventually refunded to Mr. Harman by the Obama campaign. So who knows? Maybe Mr. Harman is one of those undecided voters who can't make up his mind whether to vote Republican or Democrat.
Hey, I'm not Mr. Harman's Psychologist. You'll have to ask him why he switched parties. As Scott Ott, the conservative satirist, is wont to say, "we report, you decipher." And besides, does any of this really make a difference anyway?
