I love Pearls Before Swine's often caustic and cynical humor. Yesterday the comic strip featured Stephen Pastis' take on the Supreme Court's absurd contention that...
"Spending large sums of money in connection with elections... does not give rise to quid pro quo corruption."
In seven panels Pastis destroyed this argument. (click to enlarge)
Of course, this crap also is going on right here in semi-sleepy Salem, Oregon. Wasn't long ago that I blogged about "Salem Chamber of Commerce tries to buy City Council seats."
