Who do you think is running Congress? Farmers? Engineers? Teachers? Businessmen? No, my friends. Congress is run by lawyers. A lawyer is trained for two things and two things only. To clarify - that's one. And to confuse - that's the other. He does whichever is to his client's advantage. Did you ever ask a lawyer the time of day? He told you how to make a watch, didn't he? Ever ask a lawyer how to get to Mr. Jones' house in the country? You got lost, didn't you? Congress is composed of five hundred and thirty-five individuals. Two hundred and eighty-eight are lawyers. And you wonder what's wrong in Congress. No wonder we often know how to make a watch, but we don't know the time of day.
So lawyers are the problem. And Tinklenberg has a retinue of "counselors" as "contributors."
And Hal Philip, talking about doing "whichever is to the client's advantage."
Who's the client? For Tinklenberg Group, it is obvious -- the client is whoever is the Group's payor. The dispenser of cash.
The payee then of course is the Group.
But this running for office, it is different.
It is not buying servicing. It is supporting a candidacy.
