Yup. You can't ban legitimate contributions even from children. It had no legitimate purpose related to the government's interest in preventing corruption during political campaigns. I mean our senators knew the entire time what they voted for was flatly unconstitutional. It doesn't say much for their respect for the Constitution and the rule of law, now does it?

Don't Congresscritters take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution? How does passing unConstitutional laws fit into such an oath? For that matter, the President does for sure take such an oath. He should be ashamed for having signed an obviously flawed bill into law.

It took the wedge issue out of McPain's campaign. The neo-com's and media used it to monopolize political reporting (as they do with abortion). Equal time equaled neo-coms ranting about conservatives and abortion then equal time to McPain ranting about contributions.
