Second Rule of Politics

The First Rule being, never leave the originals in the copier (and the Third Rule being, make sure the mics are off).

From yesterday's Washington Post, a story about some lobbyists who made bank shutting a casino and then tried to make bank to open it again - their gleeful attitudes over the economic plight of the Texas tribe with the casino woes artfully captured in a series of emails obtained by the Post.

Sigh. Let the headshaking begin.

Winning quotation: "Fire up the jet baby, we're going to El Paso!!"

Oh - and when reading the article - take note of Bible Boy Ralph Reed (a dud on last night's Daily Show, by the way) and his lucrative role in the efforts.

To be clear - the Second Rule is: Don't write it down, moron! The world loves nothing more than a black and white record of hubris.
