A Mind That Suits What doesn't kill me, makes me laugh... usually.

In one of the worst travesties of justice in recent years, the Supreme Court, by 5-4 votes all around, have upheld the clearly unconstitutional repression of free speech embodied in the McCain-Feingold "Campaign Reform Act." The funny thing is, the former Clinton team of Rahm Emmanuel, James Carville, and Terry MacAuliffe have already devised ways to get around the very law that they pretended to think was important.

You can tell if your friends are raving lefties if they think that because the Supremes voted on it, it is constitutional. Ask them if they think it is constitutional for one human being to own another, per the Dred Scott decision, by which the Supremes held that it was. Something is or is not constitutional depending on whether it accords with the plain or not so plain words of the Constitution. What happened was the Supreme Court SAID that McCain-Feingold was constitutional, but the Supreme Court was totally wrong. It IS unconstitutional--on that there really can be no debate--but the Supreme Court has decided that they want it to be the law anyway, so that's the way it is.

The famous post-Watergate reform laws only resulted in more corruption, and that is what will happen here. Pre- 1975, most Congressman sold five or six votes to one major donor in their district who could give them several hundred thousand dollars. Afte r1975, every vote was sold to whichever interest could come up with the most people to pony up $5k, but you see, it was holy, because Congress had good intentions when passing it, and we all know that whatever you intend makes something holy, even if it is evil in effects. Well, actually, not. This is a sad day for the Republic.
