You do read The Dilbert Blog right? If not, check out this take on the Abramoff scandal:
When you think about it, that would be an effective way to kill almost any bill. If the goal of our non-parliamentary system is really to generate compromise, and keep solutions in a happy middle ground (as opposed to the extremes that parliamentary systems tend to generate), then killing a bill because far left or far right groups don't think it goes far enough would be able to kill anything... well... anything except pork barrel spending from ear marks.
Of course... Christians supporting gambling isn't all that far fetched really. You have heard of Bingo Night haven't you?
