Earlier this month Senator Jon Tester introduced a constitutional amendment clarifying that corporations are not “people.” Senator McConnell called the proposed amendment absurd.

“Well you have to give them some points for not hiding it… They are uncomfortable with corporate free speech obviously. They were not uncomfortable with corporate free speech when corporations that owned newspapers or television stations were engaging in it.

It’s an absurd proposal and it won’t go anywhere.”

Good morning Zen Dog haven't you heard?

It's not in vogue to criticize Republicans on this site. I guess the posters here mostly like Republicans as far as I can tell.

One would think that this sort of thing would rile up the OWS crowd but since a Republican said it, well it doesn't matter to them, they just want to beat up on Obama. That's because the political hacks that occupy the site figure they got a better chance of picking off liberal democrats than convincing independents to support their dreams of power and glory.

I had forgotten about this one, I guess if it said something bad about Obama people on here would like it a lot more, and people wonder why the left gets its ass kicked all the time.
