first they came for the lobbyists…

Just read a post over on Gawker about a proposal to make all lobbyists wear badges.  Mass Rep John Binienda compared it to Hitler making Jews wear tattoos. Well, not really, sir. But still unnecessary. Lobbyists don’t slink around capitols in diguise. They don’t wear these things Everybody knows who the lobbyists are. Legislators don’t take meetings with unknowns, and then later realize they’ve been lobbied and and yell “Tricked again! If only there was some way to identify these damn creatures!”
