Struck Speechless
I haven't commented on it, because the decision by the Supreme Court to let stand the utterly silly Campaign Finance "Reform" bill left me speechless, in more ways than on. I agree with Robert Samuelson that it is nothing short of a gross constitutional crime. The idea that money is what get's people elected is ridiculous. People's votes get politicians elected, and how politicians spend their money doesn't change that.

Doesn't the law basically codify the idea that we are merely sheep being led around by TV advertising?

It is, frankly, among the grossest violations of free speech in the history of this country. In fact, it may very well be the grossest -- in more ways that one.
