Supreme Court rolls back part of Campaign Finance Reform

I haven't been following this closely enough, but it seems that the Supreme Court has ruled 5-4 to allow more advertising as we approach elections. Now, I'm as annoyed by campaign ads as the next guy, and I hate it when a politician I don't like has more money to spend than the guy I'm rooting for... but ya know what? If we're not going to protect our right to POLITICAL speech under the 1st Amendment, what speech WERE we planning to protect exactly?
