The building “was completed in 1975 and is currently 18 stories of concrete, glass and minimal inspiration.”

Bad Form, Obamamama

To call out the Supreme Court in the way Obamamama did in his State of the Union was very bad form. He calls for civility and then lies about the decision like a little boy is unpresidential!

What Has SCOTUS Wrought?

Seems to me that rejection of McCain-Feingold is fitting.

Who put the thing together? A liberal Feingold and McCain, who sure is no conservative, that’s who. Second, look who are objecting to the court’s decision, liberals by and large. Then there’s the NY Times, by most accounts liberal, who said,

“The majority is deeply wrong on the law. Most wrongheaded of all is its insistence that corporations are just like people and entitled to the same First Amendment rights …” Times editorialists proclaimed. “It was a fundamental misreading of the Constitution to say that these artificial legal constructs have the same right to spend money on politics as ordinary Americans …”

The problem is, as Thomas Mitchell points out, is the hypocrisy of the argument as editorialized by the Wall Street Journal:

“The Court’s opinion is especially effective in dismantling McCain-Feingold’s arbitrary exemption for media corporations,” the Journal editorial points out. “Thus a corporation that owns a newspaper — News Corp. or The New York Times — retains its First Amendment right to speak freely. ‘At the same time, some other corporation, with an identical business interest but no media outlet in its ownership structure, would be forbidden to speak or inform the public about the same issue,’ wrote Justice (Anthony) Kennedy. ‘This differential treatment cannot be squared with the First Amendment.'”

I would guess this levels the playing field, and why the liberals are upset. The liberals have had all the resources of the unions and people like George Soros on their side. Now they have to face the money of the corporations.

The big problem with money in politics is that both sides want favors. Liberals want laws that further their interests and promote union goals and membership and more money. Corporations want favors, too. They want protection and less regulation and want to make more money.

To me it’s all more than faintly Fascist and I see no good coming from more money chasing politicians.
