Is it just me or.....

....would I be the only one bothered by the fact local GOP Chair Mike Hightower is also a lobbyist for Blue Cross Blue Shield? There is something asymmetrical about a die hard Republican having a hand in a facet of the U.S. health care industry while it is in the midst of crashing and burning. But, on the other hand, there is a certain amount of poetic justice in the fact he attended the WH ceremony honoring the University of Florida Gators' 2006 National Football Championship just before the same aforementioned University denied the current WH occupant's brother and former Governor of Florida an honorary degree. How sweet was that?
