  •  "special interests"? The Netroots are the people (14+ / 0-)

    of this country! Well what should we expect from someone whose existence is to serve the rich and his corporate masters. Of course, as far as he's concerned, regular americans are "special interests."

    •   "special interests" to the Republicans (8+ / 0-)

      means people who work for a pittance for non-profit groups or are not paid at all for their political work.  
      OTOH, people who are paid top salaries to spend top money to buy Congressional votes for corporations and business groups are never referred to as "special interests."
      It's pretty clear that "special interests" from the mouths of Republicans really refers to those who work in the interest of a better America.

      If, in our efforts to win, we become as dishonest as our opponents on the right, we don't deserve to triumph.
