MICKEY KAUS WONDERS IF I’M AGAINST CAMPAIGN FINANCE “REFORM:”

Reaction–even from Instapundit–focused on the fine being “too late and too small” to have any effect at deterring future ACTs. I’d say the controversy is whether ACT should be fined at all.

Well, yes. But that wasn’t my point here — rather, my point was that campaign finance law as it exists is a sham (I also used the word “crock”) because although it limits free speech it’s unwilling to actually police the big-kahuna political players involved. Like a lot of Washington regulations of its ilk, it seems more focused on producing the appearance of regulating the big players than the actuality thereof.
