Speaking of Josh Marshall: And we were, before I left for a weekend of flu-like symptoms. Radley links to this Marshall piece on an interesting new company. Read Marshall -- or Radley, who excerpts the juicy bits -- and understand that the campaign finance reform law is at best a distraction from how influence is really peddled in Washington. Why, it's almost as though someone out there wants us to believe that CFR will magically make all our "public servants" honest and accountable. Remember the old magicians' adage: While the left hand is performing the trick, make the right hand the center of attention for the audience.
