Didn’t Feel a Thing

This is way outside my area of expertise. But it looks like somebody got cut by the light saber and they didn’t feel a thing...much less see it coming.

Lobbyists pushed off advisory panels

”Hundreds, if not thousands, of lobbyists are likely to be ejected from federal advisory panels as part of a little-noticed initiative by the Obama administration to curb K Street's influence in Washington, according to White House officials and lobbying experts. “

It’s been my experience that these little, obscure things -- done far from the limelight -- wind up having a big impact. But if you’ve read The Power Broker (as I’ve recommended) you already know these things.
