Rules are for thee, not for me

John McCain is now aggressively exploiting loopholes in . . . wait for it . . . McCain-Feingold. Presumably this is all right because as we know, McCain is not like those other nasty politicians who take money as part of a corrupt quid-pro-quo. McCain is taking money in order to fight the good fight, which makes it okay to raise the funds By Any Means Necessary.

I was against McCain-Feingold, so I normally don't get particularly interested in violations thereof. But as far as I'm concerned, politicians who voted for McCain-Feingold are the only people who should be bound by its silly and counterproductive rules. And Messrs. McCain and Feingold should be straightjacketed with them.
