I read Scalia opinions as a hobby.

I have found myself disagreeing with a SCOTUS opinion in the past, only to read Scalia's opinion and suddenly realize my first assessment was obviously wrong.

One has to ask, despite the wrangling about corporations vs individuals, what did we really 'lose' here? McCain-Feingold didn't work. Period.

Corporations just circumvented the law, and in reality, made more efficient means of acquiring campaign funds with PACs and Committees and such and distributing the money amongst their anointed officials. All this did was obfuscate where the money was really coming from. The whole point of the legislation was therefore is typical of what normally happens when rights are infringed. People have a way of finding a way around the infringement.
