Citizens for All That Is Good About America

By Ezra Klein

Americans for America. The New Century Foundation for Progress. A Bright Future for Children and Families. PAC names are a genre unto themselves. A proud, optimistic, vapid genre that's designed to sound so much like apple pie that you never think to look at the filling -- or, to be less metaphorical, the money. The Sunlight Foundation decided to have some fun with this and set up a PAC-name generator. Some of these PACs are the real deal, but most are just perfect PAC names waiting to find a home.

What exactly is it that "Strong Women, Good-Looking Men and Above Average Children for Liberty" is advocating? Because whatever it is, I want to advocate it, too.

I believe the "Strong Women, Good-Looking Men and Above Average Children for Liberty" PAC is advocating a powdermilk biscuit on every plate, ketchup as a national tonic, and the future election of Guy Noir as President of the United States.

I don't know what platform positions the "Autobots for 50 States" PAC supports, but I support them too.

Guy Noir for president!

Sorry Mr. Klein, you may only advocate for that group if you move to MN and agree to call your dinner "supper."

And don't forget rhubarb pie with the powdermilk biscuit and ketchup. Hmmm, not sounding too good together.
