Dems dip their bread in K Street gravy

Unlike the Supreme Court, the grease-monkeys of K Street are anticipating the election returns, with a wave of hirings of senior Dem Hill hacks, according to a Postpiece.

This is happening (assuming the report is correct) not out of any goo-goo affirmative action kick but because the lobbying firms need Dem-friendly faces to help apply the lube necessary for the passage of their clients' legislation.

In short, they are expecting that, even with a change of proprietor, the 110th Congress will be business as usual.

I wonder where they got that crazy idea?

Without reform, winning isn't even half a loaf -- just a heel.

Whether or not anyone in the Blog Birch Society wants to admit it, this is a good sign.

More corporate cash and corruption in the Democratic Party is never a good sign -- unless you want it to be indistinguishable from the GOP (and in which case it will just keep losing to them).

If it's a choice between a genuine Republican, and a Republican in Democratic clothing, the people will choose the genuine article, every time; that is, they will take a Republican before they will a phony Democrat... Harry Truman

Your assignment is to memorize those words and comprehend their meaning and truth.
