Corporations are people too

These guys are brilliant.Campaign stunt launches a corporate \'candidate\' for Congress

Until now, corporate interests had to rely on campaign contributions and influence-peddling to achieve their goals in Washington,” the candidate, who was unavailable for an interview, said in a statement. “But thanks to an enlightened Supreme Court, now we can eliminate the middle-man and run for office ourselves.

If corporations are people, as was ruled by the Supreme Court recently, why can’t have the same rights? Like run for office for instance? How about a law firm for an Attorney General? Or Goldman Sachs for Treasury Secretary? Church of Latter Day Saints for Governor of Massachusetts? Oh, wait, the latter one is not too improbable.
And John Roberts is surprised that he’s being criticized by Obama.
Conservatives, who, frothing at the mouth, proclaim the love of Constitution and the Bill of Rights here and there should be very alarmed about this development, but they are not for some reason. I wonder how they would like to have ACLU as Attorney General.
