The Supreme Court Has Moved to Fantasyland -- or Have They?

The campaign contributions decision was too liberal for Thomas,
who wrote his own opinion banning all caps on all contributions.

The Supreme Court has decided reason or experience is no excuse for judicious decisions. This crap is way better:
"Spending large sums of money in connection with elections, but not in connection with an effort to control the exercise of an officeholder's official duties, does not give rise to such quid pro quo corruption," Roberts wrote in the ruling. "Nor does the possibility that an individual who spends large sums may garner 'influence over or access to' elected officials or political parties."
Oh yeah, that's for sure completely true. Who would ever be influenced by gobs of money? An American politician? Maybe Italians, but Americans? Never.

As Atrios often says, we are ruled by idiots. In this case, it's worse, I don't have to tell you.

Hey, Tony, would we be deciding like this if the Democrats benefited?
