Citizens United on the Way?

At the close of oral argument yesterday, the Supreme Court marshal announced that the justices would hold a special session on Thursday at 10:00am. It appears that the long wait for the Court's ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission will finally come to an end.

Nothing gets me more excited than seeing professed fans of judicial modesty carving up federal laws and molding them to their liking while overturning long-standing, settled precedent. With a straight face.

I for one can't wait.
