Hot Air wonders how much a friend Mike Huckabee is of the First Amendment; he's now saying (or seeming to say) that he'd like to ban much political speech unless it is approved by a given candidate:
I personally wish that all of this was outlawed. I think that every candidates should speak for themselves, and that every thing that involves the candidate's name or another candidate's name should be authorized and approved by that candidate, otherwise it shouldn't be spoken....

The point is that candidates can't force these special interest 527 groups to stop. I wish we could.
