Getting the Narrative Wrong

A headline on the Denver Post website caught my eye:

Spending by super PACs in Colorado is the dominion of Democrats

If you listened to the #Occupy_Somewhere folks, you were told that the problem with SuperPACs and the Citizens United ruling was that the nasty, evil, big bank conservative politicians were going to be getting too much money, and that the elections were being bought, not won.

Yet here we see that the Democratic candidates, at least in CO, are the big winners.  By more than a 2:1 margin.

I'll let the reader decide what that means.
