Okay, you lovers of campaign finance reform: here is the end result of your stupidity: two radio talk-show hosts are facing the possibility of having to go to jail for engaging in political speech on their show.
And you thought the USSR had dissolved. No sirree — totalitarianism is alive and well right here in the good ol’ US of A, thanks to the likes of John McCain, and all you lamebrains who agree with him on this issue.
P.S. Don’t forget to thank our ever-so-conservative Supreme Court . . .
P.P.S. Any lawyers want to file a complaint against, say, the L.A. Times or the New York Times for their endorsements this political season? What do you think those corporate contributions are worth?
P.P.P.S. Justin Levine notes that the complaint is utterly frivolous even under existing campaign finance laws. I don’t care. This is the next logical step. Analogy: five years ago, they joked about lawsuits against fast-food joints. It’s not a joke anymore.
P.P.P.P.S. David Dreier is a putz.
