Over at WaPo, Dave Weigel has a piece about Hillary Clinton’s promise to seek to “amend” the First Amendment in order to eliminate the Citizens United Supreme Court Decision. That’s an important personal goal for her because what that decision actually did was tell the Federal Election Commission that it could not prevent Citizens United from showing a video that told inconvenient truths about Hillary Clinton within 60 days of an election. She views that as a severe flaw in the First Amendment.
Of course, that’s not the only part of the pesky Bill of Rights that she feels needs … um … modernizing … yeah, that’s the sort of word she’d use … modernizing. Clearly, the Second Amendment will have to go entirely, and the Fourth and Fifth will need work as well, except as they might apply to certain charitable foundations.
