With His Own Petard

Amount John McCain spent in the primaries by the end of 2007: $39 Million

Overall primaries spending limit for those receiving public funding: $50 Million

Having McCain’s front running campaign hamstrung by the inevitable effects of his own authoritarian speech-limiting regulatory regime: Priceless

Unfortunately, I suspect that a political insider like McCain will manage to get around this problem (something an outsider would have much more trouble doing).

But, it sure is satisfying to see the web of regulations actually hurting someone who richly deserves it, for once.
