My jaw dropped and I checked to see if frost had begun penetrating the floor from the obvious freezing of Hell. Progress Now’s Ian Silverii and I had just agreed in almost lockstep on campaign finance.

Silverii is the Bizzaro World version of me. I’m conservative; he’s liberal. He’s thin and lean, I’m not as much. I write for The Colorado Sun, he writes for … another paper. I thought the only things we had in common were an addiction to politics and an ability to marry up.

Then I woke up to this Tweet from him:“… American campaign finance laws are the absolute dumbest, worst constructed, and cross-purpose pieces of public policy in existence. They actively make the problem they purport to fix demonstrably worse in every way.”
