So declared Chief Justice John Roberts in yesterday’s decision in FEC v. Wisconsin Right to Life. CCP Chairman Brad Smith has posted his thoughts on the case over at RedState. Says Smith:

It does not even mean the death of McCain-Feingold’s hated ban on most independent broadcast ads that merely mention a candidate by name with 30 days of a primary of 60 days of a general election. But it does open a significant exemption to that ban. The reformers are freaking out, frankly.
