    Damn, according to everyone here it was an evil Republican hedge fund Manager who killed the Twinkie.
    Wrong, it was a compassionate Democrat Hedge Fund manager Who killed it.
    Wasn't it the Democrats who blasted Romney for his funds buying companies and then gouging them with consulting and management fees???

    Timothy Collins, the CEO of private equity firm Ripplewood Holdings, was the lone donor to the Super PAC dedicated to helping Democratic Senate candidates disclosed in the year-end filing. Collins contributed at least $10,000 to Majority PAC, according to the dark money group’s most recent FEC filing.

    Ripplewood Holdings is most infamous for killing Twinkies and all the other delicious Hostess products.
    Ripplewood, which was founded by Timothy C. Collins, a major Democratic donor, is expected to lose most, if not all, of the $130 million or so it invested in Hostess. …

    Having said all that, Ripplewood’s management was far from a model for the industry. For at least the first year of the new ownership, Ripplewood charged Hostess management and consulting fees, according to people briefed on the payments, which were “in the millions of dollars.â€

    Hostess shut down in November 2012. Collins also contributed at least $200,000 to Obama’s Super PAC in October 2012, the month before the Twinkie died.

    I don't think liberals really care about the political donations of vulture capitalists.

    So, your argument is that everyone who said that vulture capitalists are evil are hypocrites because one of them donated to a Democrat?

    God damn, no wonder people think Jesus rode a dinosaur, complete lack of reasoning.

    They don't care when they donate their money to the Democrats, when they donate their money to the Republicans then they become the problem.

    I thought Hostess announced they picked a company to sell their pastry brands to, especially the twinkie, earlier this week so that twinkies would not go gently into the night...

    obama's donations were bigger, on average
    obama had more $100k+ bundlers
    democrats have higher average wages than republicans
    democrats give less time and money to charity than republicans

    these are facts

    and yet most of you think the democrats are for the "poor" and the republicans are for the "rich"

    most of you are low information voters :pie:

    What kind of "charity"?

    If you mean churches, then yes.

    And how odd that the "rich" supported a man who said he would and then did raise their taxes. Maybe they think that trickle down economics got us in this mess in the first place.

    church isn't a charity?

    not as odd that blacks overwhelmingly supported obama twice and look what he did for black unemployment.
