Juan Cole: Ban the NRA!


Juan Cole, criticizing the Pro-Israel group AIPAC for a "New York-based raid on an Alabama congressional race," writes, "It ought to be illegal for congressional contests to be interfered with to this extent by money from another state."

Cole says that this applies to "all single-issue lobbies," which is to say, he'd like to ban the DCCC, DSCC, NRCC, NRSC, DailyKos.com, Atrios, Club for Growth, NRA, NARAL, and the AFL-CIO from donating or raising more for congressional campaigns, just to name a few of hundreds of organizations. No doubt we can look forward to a future series of Cole missives blasting these groups too.

Cole really wants to make some big changes to our democracy. Sadly, Cole's dream of a Congress free of AIPAC "raids" is blocked by some silly techicalities.
