Doctor, heal thyself

How wonderful that this WaPo column on the super-fantastic effects of McCain-Feingold was published on April 1st. Compounding the effect was the McCain campaign's lackluster performance in the "Money Primary" - even though Senator McCain's vaunted law actually increased donation limits.
I had hoped to directly address this myth that BCRA has worked (not to mention that the definition of "worked" has nothing to do with the bill of goods we were sold when it passed, that it would stem the tide of money and corruption). But lucky for me, I didn't have to - because Bob Bauer (unfortunately for him, I've smeared him the past as my favorite Democrat) dismantles it quite nicely here.
