The Powerful Hillbilly Lobby

So I was reading the paper this morning, and apparently CBS is backing out of plans to do a reality show based on The Beverly Hillbillies. Apparently, CBS getting cold feet because of a $75,000 ad campaign in several newspapers by a Hillbilly lobbying group.

I swear to God, I'm not making this up. And no, it's not the National Rifle Association. A Whitesburg, Kentucky-based group, the Center for Rural Strategies, last week launched a media campaign to derail the show.

God bless America. The only country in the world where even common white trash has someone lobbying on their behalf.
