Always Prepared

As the saying goes, there's more than one way to skin a cat.

Even before a landmark Supreme Court ruling on campaign finance law expected within days, a series of other court decisions is reshaping the political battlefield by freeing corporations, unions and other interest groups from many of the restrictions on their advertising about issues and candidates.


My contention has always been that the reform needed includes a ban on paying for TV and radio time, with instead a government determined equal amount of time for all candidates, and instant run-off voting. Lone reforms, such as caps on spending, just won't do it - witness this new turn of events.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
