  1. Maybe he means special interests like the Southern Baptist Convention and the Christian Coalition???

    Honestly I don’t think he wants to get rid of special interests, just replace them with different ones, ie. religious for business interests. This is typical of the hypocrisy we have some to expect from Moore.

  2. That’s a whooole ‘nother column, but yes.

    There is no such thing as special interest-free politics.

  3. “This is typical of the hypocrisy we have some to expect from Moore.”

    Heh. Don’t limit it to Moore! I cannot think of a time period in my lifetime where politicians did not decry the influence of “special interests” and did not actually mean “the other guy’s special interests.”

    It’s one of those “lipstick on a pig” arguments that allows politicians to advocate for something utterly obnoxious while pretending to be taking the moral high road.

  4. Yup. It is especially popular in Alabama, but it is nothing new.

    Heck, Arnold used it quite a bit when he ran to replace Gray Davis in CA.
