Portrait of a Tycoon

Yesterday's Wall Street Journal had this investigative profile of Sheldon Adelson, the high roller behind Freedom's Watch.

You'll remember that the loosely-regulated, third-party group was recently lobbing pro-Collins robocalls into Maine--and may still be. (Collins still hasn't repudiated the tactic.)

But would it surprise you to learn that Adelson has also dropped $28,500 on the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which is already spending money to get Collins re-elected?

Didn't think so.

And would you believe that Adelson has declared card check for labor unions, "one of the two fundamental threats to society"--the other one being radical Islam--at the same time that anti-union astroturf groups are flooding the Maine airwaves with pro-Collins, anti-union ads?

Talk about coincidences...

UPDATE: Lefty bloggers hit back?
