George Will is rightly continuing to criticize the current state of campaign finance “reform” and the way politicians seem to look at it:

But the political class wants them silenced — “outlawed,” Bush says — because it considers the political process its private property. And Bush, adopting the cringing posture so prevalent in today’s scramble to be seen as a victim, says, “I understand how Senator Kerry feels — I’ve been attacked by 527s too.” Oh, well, then.


Few voters care about questions of political process. That is why the political class feels free to act with scandalous impunity, as in this Bush-Kerry collaboration to silence what the political class persistently calls “outside groups.” A question: Outside of what?

    BTW, McCain is blaming the FEC for all the wrongs in election financing. He is on FOX

    I never thought about it that way before.

    That observation makes the issue pretty clear.
