    either, yet it's well-established that congress can in fact regulate commercial speech.

      I'm just summarizing the reasoning of the court in the case.  And the majority's reasoning is absolutely not, "1) Corporations are legal persons; 2) Legal persons have a right to free speech; 3) ergo, McCain-Feingold is unconstitutional."

      The decision isn't about individuals' rights.  It's about the powers granted to the government.
