We Now Know What It Takes For Progressives To Admit That There Is A Constitution

Sen. Schumer (D-NY) has pitched a fit following The United States Supreme Court finding a part of McCain-Feingold unConstitutional.

In a 5-4 decision SCOTUS found that union and corporate paid issue ads cannot be banned in the closing days of campaigns.

"They also overturned two earlier decisions and threw out parts of a 63-year-old law that said companies and unions can be prohibited from using money from their general treasuries to produce and run their own campaign ads urging the election or defeat of particular candidates by name"

So, old Chuck has decided that A): There should be hearings on this "un-American decision" and B): "we need to consider a Constitutional amendment"

What a guy !
He has come to believe that there actually is a Constitution (a real one, not the fake "living" one), and that now it needs to be Amended - almost Founder-like, WOW
Plus
He has come to realize that The Supreme Court is not the final arbiter of all things Constitutional - which up until now was the left's second sacrament, second only to abortion, but I digress.

Just as soon as Chuckie goes and flips his lid along come 0bama with some brilliance.
This will lead to a “stampede of special interest money in our politics.”

In his calling it a victory for Big Oil and Big Banks and Big Insurance and Big Other Things, he left out the fact that there was no crying from the left about Big Union having that freedom in the past and all this did was level the playing field.

But, the left does not do so well when the playing field is level, now do they ?
