Revolving Door

Anne Zook notes the revolving door (on the right) between government service, disservice and Republican-friendly "private" military-industrial complexes. You could add examples from other corporate holding areas as well. Dishonor, even conviction, is no bar to service, if you're on the right side.

Hypocrisy check: if the Democrats did this Republicans would
a. scream bloody murder
b. make campaign commercials with revolving doors on jails
c. hold up presidential appointments and refuse to adequately fund background checks
d. all of the above

If you go back and look at the Republican record during the Clinton administration, you'll find that, historically, the answer is indeed what you think it is. I still don't understand how temper tantrums became successful political strategies in this country....
