The Supremes III

Those who read my two previous posts (1/21 & 2/3) lamenting the Court's appalling decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, will be heartened by a poll conducted by WashPost/ABC, which finds that 8 in 10 Americans disapprove of the ruling, and 72% want Congress to act on it.

Of course, any such legislative relief depends upon Congress -- already drunk on corporate donations -- to sober up and act according to the wishes of the electorate. The more cynical among us might be inclined to say, "don't hold your breath."
