Price of Politics: Marvin Makes His Mark, Again

Excerpted from this post at Price of Politics
Come save us, Marvin Middlemark. ... Mr. Middlemark invented the rabbit ears, the only things, besides the dish, that allow 250,000 Mediacom cable customers to watch their local Sinclair-owned television station right now. Drake Journalism Professor Janet Keefer gave Mr. Middlemark his props during her testimony before the Government Oversight Committee. Lawmakers had few questions for her, actually I'm not sure they even asked a single question. Even she said she didn't know why she was there. Dr. Keefer did compare the feelings people may have for both Sinclair and Mediacom right now to what she recalls from recently seeing a movie about Hitler and his mother. Not quite sure what that meant. I don't want to guess. I'll have to see the movie.
