    The Lobbyist numbers are especially interesting. I thought the Obamy and the Democrats were going to get rid of those "Evil Lobbyists?" Lobbyist Cash: 65% Democrat. 34% Republican. Hmm?

    wow, who would have thunk it?

    * HMO/Health services: 58% Democrats, 40% Republicans ($9.4 million)
    * Pharmaceutical Manufacturing: 51% Democrats, 48% Republicans ($10.4 million)
    * Medical Supply: 57% Democrats, 42% Republicans ($4.4 million)
    * Hospitals/Nursing Homes: 63% Democrat, 36% Republican ($14.9 million)

    Huh. Well…then it must have been those evil lobbyists that President Obama has been fighting against ever since he got to Washington! That’s it!

    I'm always perplexed when i see Democrats out there bashing Industry and labelling them "Evil-Doers" while at the same time taking all the cash they can from them. Seems like a pretty big scam to me.

    I guess we'll see but there is no doubt that Democrats have lots of Lobbyist friends.
