Mark, if you remember I said that SCOTUS would make horrific decisions if Roberts and Scalito were confirmed.

The Talking Heads of Cable News Are Leading Double Lives as Paid Lobbyists for Corporations -- President Obama spent most of December 4 touring Allentown, Pennsylvania, meeting with local workers and discussing the economic crisis. A few hours later, the state's former governor, Tom Ridge, was on MSNBC's Hardball With Chris Matthews, offering up his own recovery plan. The first step, Ridge explained, was to "create nuclear power plants." ... you would have an "innovation setter" that would "create jobs, create exports." As Ridge counseled the administration to "put that package together," he sure seemed like an objective commentator. But what viewers weren't told was that since 2005, Ridge has pocketed $530,659 in executive compensation for serving on the board of Exelon, the nation's largest nuclear power company. As of March 2009, he also held an estimated $248,299 in Exelon stock, according to SEC filings.

Thanks RJ. I was aware of the practice, but not the extent that your link demonstrates.
