Politico Gets an Open Ice Check to the Head

An Anna Palmer, over at Politico, wrote a piece called Lobbyists ready for a comeback under Mitt Romney that touts the supposed lengths that Obama has gone to keep Lobbyists from the hallowed halls of the White House.

It's a crying shame that most that read the piece at Politico, while sipping their half-caf soy, skim milk latte, will never read its absolute smack-down penned by Tim Carney of The Examiner. Having 8 years of blogging under my distressed leather Lucky belt means I've read lots and lots of rebuttal articles...but maybe none quite as wonderfully and succinctly successful as this:

Oh no! We can’t let Romney win, he’ll let lobbyists in the White House!!!

By the time he's done his systematic dismantling of her article, he has named 55 lobbyists IN OBAMA'S ADMINISTRATION. Once again, the Left (always a victim) seems to be plagued with hysterical blindness.

"The most transparent administration ever!"

We didn't realize that was sarcasm the first time around.

When the left do it, it is good. When the right do it, it is evil. Simple truths for simple minds.

I contend that "simple minds" is only part of the problem. The other part is "unemcumbered by ethics".

When I have pointed this out to those of the left they tell me, without a trace of irony, that it's O.K. because the lobbyists that work in the Obama administration were for various groups that cannot possibly be equated with the evil corporate and right-wing groups that the kinds of lobbyists they're talking about being associated with Bush/Romney are.
