I can't make this stuff up: This is why lobbyists get honor guards at their funerals.
At a town-hall meeting in Hudson, N.H., Wednesday, (Wesley) Clark defended serving on corporate boards after retiring from the military in 2000 and registering as a lobbyist. "We were trying to make America safe. That's what lobbyists mostly do,'' Clark said.
Imagine if a Republican, any Republican, had said that? The howls of derisive laughter would be deafening.
Howard Dean might credibly argue that the statement by Clark proves that he really is a Republican. Of course, the relative silence in the media over this gaffe proves that he really is a Democrat. (via "Best of the Web".)
