The Constitution is a really great document in a lot of ways. One thing it does well is coral idiotic congressional moves. Its not constitutional to pass a law targeting just one person or entity. So when congress tries to say, target ACORN with a measure, it has to write the law broadly. The law they passed applies to "any organization" that has been charged with breaking federal or state election laws, lobbying disclosure laws, campaign finance laws or filing fraudulent paperwork with any federal or state agency.

Which, as it turns out, stings a whole bunch of defense contractors. In fact, if this thing actually becomes law, it could end the entire defense-industrial complex as we know it. Wouldn't that be something?
