Why cry about DeMint and talk show hosts (Sorry you liberal snots lost your strangle hold on the media.). Heritage produces ideas that taxpayers don’t have to read or pay for.
Trial lawyers mostly produce nothing, but trivial lawsuits. ACORN produced tons of voter fraud (supported by tax dollars) until Project Veritas exposed their non-conservative ideas.
Unless you’re stupid, Heritage is LESS power; not more – unless you think Heritage can pass laws that we’re bound to or confirm Supreme Court appointees. (I’m not shocked that you’d be confused.)
You also mention “lucrative position”. How lucrative was Franklin Raines’ position at Fannie Mae? $90 million sound about right? (Poor Jamie Gorelick – she only got $26.5 million.)
