The Press

Paragraph One:
Senator Blanche Lincoln, one of the chief architects of the financial-regulation overhaul... blah blah blah blah
Paragraph Two:
The bank, Arvest Bank Group Inc., of Bentonville, Ark., is predominately owned by... yadda yadda yadda yadda
Paragraph Three:
Under Ms. Lincoln’s proposed change, Arvest would be excused from a provision... whoop whoop whoop whoop
Paragraph Four:
White House officials have said they don’t want changes that benefit specific companies... yawnnnnnnnnnnnn
Paragraph Five:
Lawmakers routinely do things to benefit organizations in their home states... z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z
Paragraph Six:
Other Democrats in Congress...
Other Democrats,” eh?  So, indirectly, in Paragraph five column 4, now we know!

Admittedly, Lincoln isn’t one of those obscure senators who seldom makes the national press.  Still, one wonders, had she been a Republican...?

(At least it wasn’t after the jump– on page A14.)
