    an important moment in american politics to say the least. IMO, the slim majority shows that the system is damn close to completely falling apart, but at least there are a handful of people in charge that recognize the true problems that arise when money and politics get together

    It was a gutsy move by the Supreme Court. The swing vote, O'Connor, is the only member of the court who has actually run for political office.

    I just hope Congress doesn't try to water it down now that it's been upheld.
