Dave: Speech is not money is not speech is not money. That’s what the argument is concerning soft money donations. As for disclosure satisfying the requirements for 527s…. that’s exactly my argument. If the outside group wants to run the ads, all it need do is disclose its donors like a 527 does.
My main point, though, is that arguing over all this in 2007 is fighting a battle that already has been lost and that was comparatively not all that important in the first place. There are more important things to worry about, such as war, terrorism, the right to life, taxes, spending, health care, entitlements…….
…. and, as a tease for my next blog entry, sportsmanship.
