Oh Noes!

This LA Times article about "flaws in [campaign finance] law" is pretty absurd. The flaw seems to be that lots of people are giving Obama small donations and information about donors giving sub-$200 donations doesn't need to be disclosed. Apparently this is a tremendous problem because nobody could have predicted that someone would ever raise lots of money in such a fashion... and... uh... I don't know. The article also paints small money donors as lacking agency, silly stupid people who impulsively give money.

The rest of the article is basically the RNC press release about how Obama, like every other candidate, has gotten some improper donations which they didn't spot. Oh noes! The Republic might fall!
