It's Hard To Feel Much Empathy

BLT: The Blog of the Legal Times posted a story today about the impact of the semi-shutdown of the Federal government and its impact on a certain segment of workers inside the Beltway. Unfortunately, I find it very hard to generate much empathy for this segment of workers.

I think the title of the story explains why I, normally a very empathetic person, feel nothing for this class of workers.

Lobbyists Face Uncertainty Amid Shutdown

The story is about how hard work is for these lawyers and ex-Congressmen as they try to explain what is going on to their clients and how they don't have good answers.

Life is tough all around. These leeches and parasites just need to get used to it.

  1. Seen in a capital bathroom: "Lobbyists are the people you hire to protect you from the people you elect."

    There is some truth in there. Lobbyists are useful and dangerous at the same time.

    Caveat: I am a registered state lobbyist and have good friends who are lobbyists on Capitol Hill.
