Nevada Senator John Ensign has come to a shocking conclusion that even the meager limits we have on money in politics should be eliminated. As reported here by KRNV.tv in Nevada, the incument senator asked high school students whether its more important to spend millions of dollars to persuade people what beer to drink (as corporations currently do) or spend millions of dollars to persuade people what candidate to support (as corporations also do, although evidently not spending quite as much as they do on beer advertising.)
Clearly, senator, politics is more important than beer. This is precisely why elections ought not be for sale, even though it's perfectly fine if beer is.
