CHQ - Supreme Court ruling helps grassroots causes

Here's my tweet for today:

@Richard Viguerie  The Dirty little secret about campaign finance laws. They were designed to protect incumbents by stifling competition.

Today's Supreme Court decision: Good Riddance to Incumbent-Protection Censorship; Hello Insurgents (Richard Viguerie) - "Today's Supreme Court ruling in the Citizens United case means that the anti-incumbent furor that has been growing is partly released from the shackles created by 'incumbent protection' election and campaign finance laws."

Scott Brown victory a reflection that grassroots support for conservative candidates and organizations at historic highs (Richard Viguerie)  - "Americans are furious, angry, and frightened at the political establishment's massive expansion of government in the last 10 years.  No big-government incumbent should feel safe in the 2010 primaries.  And as Massachusetts voters showed, that applies in the bluest of blue states."
