Money and politics will always go together

Ok. Here we go again. The McCainiacs are on their crusade again to wipe money from politics. Now they are saying that new legislation is required to "save the system." Didn't we just have pass wide ranging campaign finance law that would save the system? This is another one of those items that is never fixed and never will be. Every time the "anti-special interests" special interest tries to ban money from politics, the money just finds other ways to get in. Only now its less accountable and arguably more dangerous. This is another example of "reform" in which the cure is worse than the disease.
