Big Tobacco claimed that smoking was not hazardous to one's health. Big Oil doesn't see what all the fuss is about regarding climate change. Insurance companies don't want health care reform. In each case, the Constitution is raised, flags are waved, the future of America's very existence is characteristically questioned, lobby money is generously spent, "experts" for hire surface, and useful idiots come to the fore. If you can get past the nausea, it's hard not to enjoy the synchronized pageantry.
