Wrapped in Humor

Christian Schneider makes a serious - and damaging - point about Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Mark Neumann:

Neumann would actually support governmental censorship of political speech – if only that pesky Constitution didn't get in the way.  He would trust the government to determine what is and isn't a political ad, and allow it to ban whatever it believes to be objectionable.

There isn't a "conservative" alive that would trust the federal government with that much power to abridge the First Amendment.  At least none with a fundamental understanding of what conservatism means.
