    Could we put together that kind of money?

    Could we agree enough on what we'd want him/her to lobby for?

    Would just one lobbyist be meaningfully effective against all of the other lobbyists?

    Are we better off contributing to other political organizations that already have lobbyists?

    Please, have mercy on what is just a nearly random thought I'm running up the flagpole, triggered by a comment I saw in another thread where someone said he wasn't rich enough to hire a lobbyist. I'm hardly thinking to myself, "Oh, boy! What a brilliant idea!"

    Even if this idea somehow might have had a little merit until recently, does the recent SCOTUS ruling about corporate money make it a moot point?

    Maybe we could at least collectively provide a little income for a DUer in the Washington, DC area who's willing to stand around in long lines in the halls of Congress for us?
    This one might be out of high school...maybe. :D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    I would bet that the DU lobbyist would get as much attention as the NAMBLA lobbyist.

    If they did it they would be decked out in DUmp shirts carrying DUmp signs, it would be a total embarassment!

    What would Duers want

    * Days off for pagon holidays.

    * Be able to list the voices in your head as dependents

    * Put Underground Panter on the Endangered Species list.

    * Create The National Bouncy Day parade.

    * Create " Hug A Terrorist Week " ( unless you can't find one, then someone on Death Row will do).

    * Outlaw the word " condesending".

    Who was the lobbyist involved in that big scandal a few years ago? Ambroff or something? I remember that photos of him were all over the news in poses and shaking hands with Representatives and Senators for both parties. I saw him show up at a funtion on CSPAN when there were alot of Congressmen milling around. Ambroff started stampedes all over the place just by moving around the room and all the politicians could not get away from him fast enough.
