Supreme Court Acts Boldly In Defense Of Free Speech

Good for them:

"The Roberts court ended its term last summer avoiding a constitutional showdown with Congress over the Voting Rights Act. But its first major decision of the current term might signal a new willingness to act boldly.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and his conservative colleagues delivered a seismic jolt Thursday. They overturned two of the court's past decisions -- including one made as recently as six years ago -- to upend federal legislation that says corporations may not use their profits to support or oppose candidates and to declare unconstitutional a large portion of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform act passed in 2002."

Anyone paying attention knew that McCain-Feingold was unconstitutional and would ultimately fail - Chuck Schumer's self-serving, misleading and idiotic statements yesterday notwithstanding.
