1. Neutral news at best...

How about "they get a jump on" overturning Citizens United? Ending corporate personhood? Restricting private money in elections? Free media access to all candidates as a condition for licensing broadcast networks? Public finance of campaigns? Forcing all spenders to disclose their donors? Forcing full disclosure of who pays for think tanks and studies and, often enough, supposedly neutral media reports?

Money out of politics apparently becomes passe soon as the election is over. Hip-hip-hooray, for today the good guys are winning the game of whoring themselves for cash to corporations and the rich. What could go wrong? It's not like there's any quo for the quid? Right?
