Did I mention Harry Reid is the top recipient this election of lobbyist cash, and that the top casino lobbyist (a Republican) is backing Reid?

The unions, Wall Street, K Street, the casinos, the big drug companies — they’re all going to the bat for Harry Reid. What does that tell you about this Democratic Senate? What does it tell about Obama’s rhetoric?
