Hope I'm not being too forward in asking...

With so many Alabama politicians emphasizing the urgency of reforming the state's campaign finance system, would it be cynical to note that state Rep. Jeff McLaughlin, D-Guntersville, annually introduces a bill to end money shuffling between political action committees and that his bill annually dies in the Senate before passage? It just sorta seems like the kind of bill that already would have become law considering how serious everyone claims to be about greater clarity and disclosure and whatnot.

You mean you expect them to follow up their words with actions? Or do what their constituents want? If they did that, we'd already have a new constitution.

No, you're not cynical -- you've just lived with the Alabama legislature too long, as have we all.
