“Take the Money and Run For Office”

NPR’s Planet Money has teamed up again with WBEZ’s This American Life to produce an extraordinary audio show on money in politics.

Perhaps you heard the show when it was aired by KUT last Sunday. If you missed it, or if you want to hear it again, it’s available here.  You can listen to it on line or download it in the form of an mp3 file (optionally in iTunes, which is simplest). The download is free until the end of this week, after which it will cost 98 cents.

It’s all good, but for me the most memorable audio is John McCain fulminating on the arrogance and cluelessness displayed by certain justices of the Supreme Court in Citizens United v. FEC.
