Everybody wants to blame lobbyists for corruption and government waste, but lobbyists aren't the root of these problems. Our government is too big. If our government was smaller, lobbyists wouldn't be able to wreak so much havoc. And, it's important to keep in mind that some lobbyists pressure legislators to take actions conservatives would support. Like drilling oil in Alaska. My fellow Glamocracy blogger and former lobbyist Megan Carpentier takes to the pages of the Washington Post to offer her explanation why all lobbyists aren't souless, morally decrepit people. Unless they are now working for the Obama campaign, that is. (I kid!).
