Even a Conservative sees the reality of lobbyists…

“Lobbying is a form of legalized bribery.”

Christopher Buckley

Here is a former speechwriter in the Reagan White House (and a fine American satirist) who made this statement on Morning Joe this morning. Interesting that he also favors President Obama over Mitt Romney… although he is upset that the Bowles-Simpson report was walked away from by the Administration. In reality, libertarian Buckley was dropped as a conservative National Review writer for endorsing Obama in 2008.

However, in commenting on his political involvement:

“My last name happens to be Buckley. That’s my only connection with politics.”
