McCain: Campaign Finance Reform is Dead

Has anyone told Russ Feingold, or the Feingold sycophants, this yet?

Sen. John McCain says the movement he led to reform how political campaigns are financed is dead.

McCain says the Supreme Court has spoken on the constitutionality of political contributions by corporations. The Arizona Republican had sought to regulate them with a landmark campaign finance law he wrote with Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis.

Last week the Supreme Court ruled that corporations may spend as freely as they like to support or oppose candidates for president and Congress.

McCain says there’s not much that can be done about campaign financing now. Still, he predicts a backlash over time from voters once they see the amount of money that corporations and unions pour into political campaigns.

McCain spoke Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

A few left-wing  bloggers in both Wisconsin and the rest of the nation have urged Feingold should keep fighting for his (not to mention Mike Ellis and Jon Erpenbach’s) fool’s errand of violating the U.S. Constitution and systematically raping the 1st Amendment.

According to Feingold’s bio, he’s a former Rhodes Scholar.  Aren’t those guys supposed to be very smart?  So all we’ve gotten from Feingold is stubborn arrogance on this matter.  Not sure how smart that is.
