    Armor Holdings, fittingly, is "Lying down with dogs."

    And - aw, shucks - Tony Blair has woken up with fleas.

    And, just to add some more shading to our picture of Armor Holdings, check out exmearden's comment and link upthread: Armor Holdings spent $700,000 in the second half of 2006 on lobbying. And, thanks to the lovely link the ever-vigilant Dburn sent me, AH - because there's money in blood - understood what a good investment that lobbying was: Armor Holdings spent a total of $3.7 MILLION on lobbying activities - as distinct from campaign contributions - from 2002 through 2006.

    Unfortunately, the folks at Pinnacle Armor evidently haven't learned how to play in the big leagues: during the same period, they spent, well, nothing. Silly boys - thinking the merits of their product would get them business from the Pentagon.
