The (Campaign Finance Reform) Empire Strikes Back, but Sager Has'em Covered

It was bound to happen but I think the Empire has more than met its match in Ryan Sager, the New York Post editorialist and Tech Central Station columnist who told the world about campaign finance reform marketing guru Sean Treglia.

Mark Schmitt, director of research for the mis-leadingly named Open Society Institute, made the mistake of posting a "critique" of Sager on a blog recently. The quotation marks are there because Schmitt's "critique" is basically this: Sager can't be right because he's a young conservative "quasi-journalist" and because the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy has targeted campaign finance reform.

I would tell you more but I don't want to spoil Ryan's delightful response for you.
