"Caution: Petard Hoist at Work"

Jules Crittenden links to Don Surber’s assessment of John McCain’s financial karma:

McCain-Feingold was supposed to limit money in political campaigns. That is why McCain is having trouble raising money. McCain-Feingold made him a political pariah. Republicans love him and respect his wartime heroism, but they would rather see Hillary get elected.

Well, maybe not Hillary.

What is ironic is McCain-Feingold failed to limit Big Money in campaigns. Democrats exploited the 527 loophole with the top 5 or 6 all being big liberal-labor spending machines. If it were not for the Swift Boat Veterans For Truth, Republicans would have been shut out last time.

The other irony is technology is making McCain-Feingold obsolete.
