A few things have happened today in the realm of campaign finance issues.

First the SCOTUS knocked the wind out of McCain-Feingold today. The President says it’s a victory for Wall Street banks, Big Business fat cats, who are all special interests. I’d like to remind Mr O, his unions are just as special and interesting. I’m just sayin’

The second bit of news deals with an older law that puts limits on campaign contributions. Unions and business can now contribute to campagins out of their general funds among other things without limits.

I’m not sure what to think about this. I think you should be able to give as much as you want to whatever cause you choose to align yourself with. Of course, I’m saying that as a responsible person not out to get anything or to cause any trouble. However, I am worried about more corruption and buying of votes, which we know already happens.

What say you Derby fans? Is this good or bad and will this years’ elections be uglier for it?
