As oldtimers will remember, way back in the early days of political blogging, there were tremendous worries that bloggers might have economic conflicts of interest of some sort or another and we needed BLOGGER ETHICS and CONGRESSIONAL LEGISLATION to make sure that at the very least our entire lives were fully disclosed to make sure this wasn't the case. I wasn't quite as wise to corruption in Washington as I am now, but even then I knew that people on the teevee and in op-eds were often talking their (usually undisclosed) book. No one seemed to care about that.
