« DeLay Outraged About the Internet | Main | MoveOn Circles the Firing Squad »

One of the things I'm loving about all this scandal related to Indian tribes is that it involves a Republican lobbyist, the most powerful Republican member of Congress, and probably some more Republicans like Nye and Doolittle, yet Native Americans are one of the most reliably Democratic constituencies in the country.

And yeah, Abramoff is pretty damn clever in getting his clients to essentially pay him more than once for the same events, that much I'll give the guy.

True. And that's a function of the "success" of the "K Street Project." Ultimately, if there's any justice in the world -- and that's a big "if" -- K Street lobbying scandals should net far more Republicans than Democrats, precisely because of DeLay's aggressive program of forcing lobbying firms to replace Democrats with Republicans.

Scandal's always going to center around money. If you surround the money with Republicans, well...

Thankfully, from their perspective, you can always dismiss the reality of it by claiming that the focus on Republicans is liberal media bias.

Great blog with good advice, useful information and superb commentary!
