I <3 Claire McCaskill
They're getting paid there because someone else is stupid enough to pay them TO be there. And for the lobbyist circle-jerk that is attending hearings. But mostly the first one. I mean, to tell clients that they're paying their lobbyists to sit around with their thumbs up their asses exchanging meaningless emails with their friends about how stupid their clients are to be paying them to sit in some boring, stupid hearing will just result in further (if completely justified) unemployment.
I wrote a whole weekly column about that, actually.
All of that is to say that Claire McCaskill's Twitter is the most awesome Twitter ever. Yes, being a Senator really is as banal-exciting as she kind of makes it sound.
