Repeat After Me: "Corporate Campaign Contributions are Illegal; Corporate Campaign Contributions are Illegal; Corporate..."

This could have been prompted by any number of web entries, letters to the editor, or newspaper articles we routinely see, but in this specific case was prompted by the Hotline Blog entry discussing the Obama/McCain showdown.

Read through the comments on the entry above. Several commenters argue that we need to ban corporate contributions to political campaigns. Of course, we did that in, oh, 1907. This points up what a thorough job of disinformation the so-called "reform" community has done.
