    Here he comes, the Lobby, the scary, scary lobby. Clickfool, all I see in America is that Jews are just as little represented as anywhere else. Rumsfeld, Bush, Rice, Dennis Hastert, Bill Frist, all good Christian girls and boys, waging wars here and abroad. Two new supreme court justices, including chief justice Roberts, both conservative Christians... The only practicing Jew in the Senate, Lieberman, is likely to lose his next election, largely on account of his supposed partiality towards Israel. And George Allan, a self proclaimed conservative Christian and Virginia Senator, was recently "exposed" as a Jew, which will likely cost him votes. Who is ap the Jewish lobby? Why in the mind of the likes of you it is illegal, immoral, strange, or absurd, for pressure groups to try to convince leaders to act in a certain way, an activity in America referred to as "lobbying". Why do you have a problem when Jews do that, but not with the Taiwanese or the Mexicans or the English?
