The McCutcheon plurality opinion Chief Justice Roberts read out at the Supreme Court yesterday does not remove all limits on political corruption in this country. All in good time, my little pretty. Our little party’s just beginning. You think we have defined corruption down today (hat tip to Daniel Patrick Moynihan, “Defining Deviancy Down”)? You just wait. You think they have oligarchs in Putin’s Russia? We’ll show them who’s exceptional, and what oligarchy is really all about!
P.S. I could go into the details, but that would only dignify an opinion that is either clueless or unscrupulous or utterly un-conservative, or all three.
