TRB: Crankocracy In America

Now that TNR's paywall has come down you can read my TRB columns for the print magazine--relatively current ones, anyway--without shelling out. You should subscribe anyway, either to the print magazine or to the spiffy digital tablet edition, so you can read the magazine lying down or on a park bench or in the loo, and also so you can access the archives.

Anyway, this week's column, "Crankocracy In America," explains how the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision (combined with a less-publicized lower-court decision) unloosed on America not the expected corporate political donations but a flood of cash from rich right-wing cranks, which is actually worse.
