Fact of the day

George Will:
The Center for Responsive Politics calculates that by Election Day $2.4 billion will have been spent on presidential campaigns in the two-year election cycle that began January 2007, and another $2.9 billion will have been spent on 435 House and 35 Senate contests. This $5.3 billion is a billion less than Americans will spend this year on potato chips.

I know you don't like campaign finance laws, but what would you think about eliminating campaign finance restrictions or expenditures by anyone but the candidates and restricting spending by the campaigns.
