McCain-Feingold Ruling is "Constitutional Crime"


Check out Robert Samuelson's superb editorial in the Washington Post on the Supreme Court's idiotic ruling in favor of muzzling free speech, er, "campaign finance reform." Favorite lines:

"The court's decision is a constitutional crime that invites comparison with Plessy v. Ferguson (1896), the ruling that upheld racial segregation on the theory that "separate" could be "equal." Like Plessy—which was ultimately reversed—this decision contradicts the express language of the Constitution and will someday collapse of its own absurdities. Until then, its supporters will flatter themselves that they are improving democracy when they are actually degrading it."
