Is the Clock About to Strike Midnight for McCain-Feingold?

Oh, I hope so!

Here's the brief post from NRO's The Corner (originally from SCOTUSblog) suggesting that the Justices are giving government lawyers a rough time in the oral arguments of FEC v. Wisconsin Right to Life and Sen. John McCain, et al., v. Wisconsin Right to Life.

If this really bad legislation is tossed out, the left will be as fritzed out as they were in the partial-birth abortion ban cases upheld by the Court last week. And well they should because, as described in the previous post, anything that increases the power of genuine democracy and/or which encourages open debate of issues is anathema to liberals.

Go Roberts and Alito!
