It Hasn't Been Such A Bad Week After All

Attention arch-conservatives: this Supreme Court decision to relax restrictions on political ad spending isn't as good for you as you thought.

Here's my thinking. In the broad sense, conservatives tend to trust corporations because they are usually run by older, richer people, who are conservative. Therefore it can be assumed that they will spend on ads that favor conservative candidates and causes. This is why liberals have been so angry about the decision. They believe that corporations will swing elections with a blitz of lies at the last minute.

However, the corporations that most conservatives DON'T trust are the big media. You know, that famous liberal media bias. And who do you think is going to get all that ad money, mmmmm? That's right! CBS, NBC, ABC! Meaning the other 360 days before the election, the entire liberal media can afford to poison our minds against Sarah Palin.

That's why they call me Mr. Brightside, honey.

Actually, as far as I am concerned, freer speech is a goal all unto itself. Unfortunately, that means I'll have to accept speech I DON'T like. Then again, I come here a lot so my tolerance for frivolity must be quite high!
