A bright cold day
Progressives and liberals and other whiny types who like to hide behind the Constitution like it was their mommy's skirt are all upset about a recent Supreme Court ruling that allows unlimited political contributions from corporations. Get over it. Sure there's a downside; it's now a matter of legal precedent that an abstract business entity enjoys all the rights of citizenship. But look at the bright side. Thanks to the Supreme Court, anything you want to do with your money, from buying an election to scoring crystal meth to hiring a hitman, is now theoretically defensible as constitutionally protected speech.
