Let the Ads Run

Fortunately, this guy has a little bit of sense. It seems he believes the average citizens actually (gasp) deserve a say-so in who gets elected, and have a right to voice their opinions (faint).

Though Chairman Bradley Smith is a Republican, he was appointed to the FEC by President Bill Clinton, a Democrat.

"I think it's great we live in a country where 260 average guys can go out and put their point of view out there before the public and influence a major presidential race,'' Smith said in an interview with Bloomberg television. "I am not one who agrees it is illegitimate for citizens to take a stand on these kind of issues and only the politicians should be able to say what they want about the issues they want to talk about.''

Why should Kerry--or any politician, for that matter--be given a free ride on a manure truck of lies, all the way to the White House? You may now compliment me on my poetic prowess.
