I've been calling lobbyists "parasites" for years, so I don't see what the trouble is with these fellas.

That is a pretty smurfy headline.

Hillbillies would prefer to be called "Sons of the Soil," too, but it just ain't gonna happen.

They're into grassroots organizing and public affairs, and other sorts of politics and advocacy.

I work with a lot of 501(c)(3) organizations, and in my world, we call that "lobbying."

I know many lobbyists are also lawyers, but it's high time we repurpose every lawyer joke ever made for lobbyists.

Soulless corporate shills?

I strongly suggest, in the most sincere vein, make them extinct.

Lobbyists are the root cause of why we cannot have a nice country.

Here's another vote for Bribers or Bribists.  Bribe Artists, perhaps.

A success on the part of the aviation manufacturers' lobbyists to not have damn government regulations on aviation safety and maintenance!

When the lobbyists get put against the wall, that wall needs to be made out of the bodies of these guys.

And why do they have to be such pussies with the Designated Briber rule? You don't see that kind of crap in the National League of Lobbyists!

How about "No account scumbags"?  Does "No account scumbags" work for you?

I've come to realize the rich have unions, and they are called lobbyists (and professional organizations like the AMA).

//I realize the unions have their own lobbyists.

Lobbyist is a bad name for what they do. Influence peddlers, bribers, conmen, or scum would do for most.

A few could be called activists.

johnny_vegas: "whores" is not an option?


No, lobbyists are the ones buying. They're more like the johns. Congress is the whores.
