Carol Platt Liebau: Hypocrisy Alert

Hypocrisy Alert

The same freshman Democrats who inveighed against the supposed "culture of corruption" on Capitol Hill during their election campaigns have now selected a registered lobbyist -- who represents the oil industry, the tobacco lobby, pharmaceutical industries and American Indian gambling interests -- to form its PAC.

Generally, I would have no comment about anyone using any legal method to extract a competitive advantage. But given the loudmouthed denunciations of such behavior by Democrats themselves in the runup to November 2006, it does reek a bit of hypocrisy, does it not?

The fact that a Republican blogger is complaining about this is another example.
