now this is clever

Postby kiryan » Mon Mar 15, 2010 5:26 am

This guy is trying to have his corporation run for office based on the supreme court's supposed granting of personhood to corporations.

What's brillaint is that if they can fan this sentiment, democrats, the president and this tool, it could be a huge election issue. Assuming the decision did not actually make corporations full fledge people, it would be easy to cast it that way regardless. Obama did just that at the SOTU. It would be easy to use this to stir up the liberal base... to regain the mantle of the populist. What can the republicans do.. the line of "thats not what the decision meant" won't play well, corporations buying elections is much more convincing. Republicans will be in a tough spot when they call for a vote/amendment to over rule the decision.

I find it a little sad when I wonder about how much money is going to be spend to deal with such a silly issue.

Money that most likely could have been used for real things.

Although if lawyer job creation is needed, I guess the company is doing the US a favor.

So you mean happier, healthier and more cognizant of the world around him?
