Keith Olbermann: Supreme Court Ruling Makes Every Politician ‘A Prostitute’

This may be the one time I can say I don’t think Olbermann is guilty of bombast. He recently abandoned the long, special comment format on his show and instead makes two nightly “quick comments” (because I think even his core audience was getting tired of the long-winded tirades) but if there’s a reason to get worked up, it’s this. I know visitors have plenty to say and I’m curious to hear your thoughts on KO’s special comment “U.S. Government for Sale”:

    Totally agree with rageplug. If this ruling isn't corrected soon, all of our politicians are going to require some kind of corporate endorsement to be elected to office. That's not the America I know. BTW- Corporations are not people, and hence, not entitled to human's rights under the constitution.
