Best line (so far) today, from John Aravosis's America Blog
As if this deal to sell off control of US ports to the United Arab Emirates couldn't become any sleazier, we now have former Republican Senator Bob Dole being hired as a lobbyist to influence - who? - HIS OWN WIFE.
In what I hope will be a lifetime-singular defense of Bob Dole, John never met my
wife, who regularly sailed through brick walls without so much as mussing her hair. As her husband, I was a rare, if tenuous contact point with reality. (All this said with genuine affection).
But somehow I don't think that's the deal here. When the lobbyist and the lobby-ee share a bank account, that's bribery.
