We're on Our Way to a Radically Right Wing Country Spiralling Out of Control.

Thank you Rachel Maddow, for once again knowing just what the real story was about regarding the Scott Brown election win in Massachusetts. What might seem like an obvious message directed at a philosophically weak Democratic Party has turned out to be anything but, because it's clear now, they just don't get it.

To quote Han Solo, "I've got a bad feeling about this." (Google video still unavailable)

(AP) -- The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that corporations may spend as freely as they like to support or oppose candidates for president and Congress, easing decades-old limits on business efforts to influence federal campaigns.

By a 5-4 vote, the court overturned a 20-year-old ruling that said companies can be prohibited from using money from their general treasuries to produce and run their own campaign ads.
