Dave Obey: "Shepherd" or "Midnight Operator"?

Despite the JSOnline's headline implying that Dave Obey is some sort of good boy for his "work," a better description would be "conniving backroom pol."

Here's the JS headline:

Obey shepherds spending bill to House passage

Reality? Far different.

"Congress is being forced to approve a package that was created in a backroom by a handful of Democrat leaders and staff," Rep. Jerry Lewis of California, the top Republican on the Appropriations Committee, said in a statement. "This legislation has never seen the light of day, and has had no oversight or scrutiny by the vast majority of representatives, senators, the media or the American public."

'Profanity Dave' didn't want anyone looking too carefully at his handiwork--which says volumes about his preferred modus operandi.
