The Supreme Court is Two for Two Today

According to The New York Times, the Supreme Court today loosened restrictions on campaign ads, deciding that special interest groups should be permitted to exploit a loophole in the McCain-Feingold law.

According to the article:

"Writing for the majority, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said that, when regulating what can be said in a campaign and when it may be said, 'the First Amendment requires us to err on the side of protecting political speech rather than suppressing it.'”

So, just so we're clear-- the First Amendment is sacrosanct when it comes to anti-abortion groups and corporate entities. Individuals-- like certain high school students who hold up silly signs? Yeah... it's not for them.

Thanks, Values Voters of 2004! Grrrrrrrreat job!
