Megan McArdle is just thrilled that corporations can spend as much money as they want to get out their political message. Why not, she trills merrily. After all, any money corporations spend to make more money is a good thing for the corporations, and what is good for corporations is good for America. And they already spend millions anyway, what's a few hundred million more? The only possible drawback she can find is the possibility that corporations might suffer from spending more money on political advertising and less on corporate advertising.
It does not occur to the little miss that the money won't be taken away from tv ads aimed at consumers. It'll come from the middle men who passed on the corporation's political message in a consumer-friendly form. It'll come from Megan McArdle.
