[su_right_ad]In the 16 months it’s been in existence, zero people, that would be none, nada, not one, no one, has given one penny to the Dick Morris anti-Hillary Clinton super PAC, reports Dave Weigel.

He launched Dick Morris’s Just Say No to Hillary PAC, registering it from Tampa. From time to time, stories about the potential hurdles for a Hillary Clinton run would cite the rise of PACs like Morris’s.

But there is a rather glaring problem with adding Morris to this narrative: No one has been giving money to his PAC. Literally, no one. In filings today, first flagged by Center for Public Integrity reporter Dave Levinthal, Just Say No to Hillary PAC reported no donors through all of 2014. That squares with data collected by the Center for Responsive Politics.

If that finding is surprising, it’s because other people have done perfectly good business in the sturdy ant i-Clinton industry. Dan Backer, a conservative attorney and strategist who won at the Supreme Court last year to undo some restrictions on individual donors to parties, launched the Stop Hillary PAC after Morris’s PAC was already in the field. The Backer group has hauled in more than $1 million, and built a sizable social media presence. When I pointed out Morris’s problems to Backer, the newer player sounded bemused.

“Is he the cat from the Friskies commercials?” Backer asked in an e-mail. “I thought he died…”

    I guess after Dick’s epic prediction of a Romney landslide, among other really wrong predictions, no one is going to give him a penny. Now, if they could just realize that these are just money machines for these people …

      Yet Turd Blossom is still raking in the cash despite his awful predictions.

      That’s right. Dickie should’ve predicted his site would go over like a lead balloon.
