Speaking of Rick Santorum, I’d almost forgotten that Senator Man-On-Dog used to run the K Street Project, wherein the lobbying industry became something of an arm of the Republican party.
Ed Kilgore, filling in for Steve Benen, at Washington Monthly, points to this great article about the K Street Project. It’s definitely worth a read, and as Kilgore mentions, the kind of thing that’s worth funding. I just gave $100 to the Washington Monthly as part of my year-end charitable-giving (in the note, I asked them to stop publishing Gregg Easterbrook). I may give to Mother Jones too.
