We’ve all been witness to those classic infomercials that come on late at night after you’ve reluctantly left the bar, only to go home to cook Beefaroni and have a nice little Jack and Coke before bed – when all of a sudden you turn on the television and decide in a drunken stupor that it’s a great idea to buy the 4-CD compilation for three easy payments of $24.95 of “Motown’s Number One Hits.”

Yes, even those same people who would not give you a refund the next day when you sobered up and realized you’re not even into Motown, well they have lobbyists too. Not only do they have lobbyists, they have lobbyists constantly on the look out and ready to rapidly respond to political attacks.
