    I think this is hilarious. And sad. The sad thing is that the irony in their campaign and the point of the message will be lost on most people. Most people don't understand the magnitude of the disaster in that tragic Supreme Court decision.

    Here's a link to their website. Same campaign ad, but more information on the 'corporation'.



    Murray Hill Incorporated is Running for Congress

    You can hear the slogans now: "How can we run a campaign so cheaply?, We cut out the (middle) man!"

    I'm wondering how long it will be before Ronald MacDonald runs for the Senate and MacDonald's "buys" his seat.

    Instead of Huey Long's "a chicken in every pot," McD will give you a pot on every pol!
