The best sentence that I’ve seen on the Citizens’ United case.

Comes from Matt Welch over at Reason (although he wrote it for CNN), and it should serve as a useful answer for everybody who wants to play “Let’s try to scare the right-wing by talking about scaaaaaaary foreign corporations:”

“Let’s boil it down to the essential words: Political documentary, banned, government.”

You can safely assume that anybody not taking the point is probably not going to. One way, or the other.

    That’s a pretty darned good sentence.

    My favorite, a bit longer, comes from the opinion itself:

    “The First Amendment does not permit laws that force speakers to retain a campaign finance attorney, conduct demographic marketing research, or seek declaratory rulings before discussing the most salient political issues of our day.”

    Call me old-fashioned, but my personal favorite is

    “Congress shall make NO law…”
