Silencing the Opposition

In Newsweek last week, George Will discussed the evolution of McCain-Feingold and the use of said statute to silence the political opposition:
Campaign-finance "reformers," who advocate ever-increasing government regulation of the quantity, timing and content of political speech, always argue that they want to regulate "only" money, which, they say, leaves speech unaffected. But here they argue that political speech is money, and hence must be regulated.
Yet another highlight to the legacy of our dear, "small-government-conservative," "individual-liberty-advocating," President.
