Don't know whether to laugh or cry...

Looks like Oregonians, in our wisdom, have passed Measure 47, which puts some very stringent limits on campaign contributions, but failed to pass Measure 46, which amends the constitution to make Measure 47 legal. I voted against them both, so I guess I'm glad, but still, come on people, read your stinking voter guide.

Just another example of why the initiative system, much like most of the laws it results in, is a good idea on paper and a horrible idea in practice.
