    Progressives are outraged that the Supreme Court overturned limits on corporate political advertising last month. Here's why they should be rejoicing.

    I doubt people like Keith Olbermann will understand this commentary, but it's spot on. To quote the author: "By limiting government power, it protects our freedom."

    According to "progressives" gov't is what protects our freedom. So more gov't equals more freedom. They can't stand the idea of people working things out for themselves, or that people are going to be responsible. So they seize on any bad news story as cover to "do something" about whatever problem and expand gov't.

    The fact that progressives are so opposed to the Supreme Court decision is indicative of their regard for the constitution. What part of "Congress shall make no law" did they not understand?
