It’s easy to understand why Representative Rehberg would find such a challenge in lobbying—he’s become so accustomed to taking the money from big business interests that it’s probably pretty difficult to be the one handing it over.

The truth is, though, that Rehberg would mop the field with this crop of Republican candidates running for the House, whose campaigns consist of bragging about the number of Twitter followers they have and answering crackpot TEA Party questions on their Facebook pages.
