Elizabeth Drew on "Selling Washington"

I printed out this New York Review of Books article by Elizabeth Drew a week or so ago, and finally tonight during a round of "catch-up" finally got around to reading it (I still have quite a few things to read, and hope to get to them over the course of the weekend). At any rate, this piece is a frightening look at the impact of lobbyists on Congress, as well as the reverse (in the form of the so-called "K Street Project").

Drew's essay is well worth your time. More than any other I can recall, it offers an excellent justification for strengthening ethics rules in Congress and for citizen outrage at the antics of our elected representatives.
