George Will has been at his best in his attacks on the McCain-Feingold bill and other unconstitutional attempts to bar political speech. His persistent and eloquent deconstructions of such efforts ought to win some kind of prize. But they won’t, of course.
Today, Will is at it again, as he takes apart the recent three-judge opinion on McCain-Feingold.
It is a truism in politics, as well as the world of punditry, that no one cares about campaign finance reform. It is a deadly dull subject, almost guaranteed to drive away both voters and readers. That Will succeeds in making the topic compelling is a testament to his skill, but also to the fact that his subject is not the arcana of campaign finance reform, but rather the vital importance of keeping the First Amendment alive.
