The Great Confusicator (Obsfucator?) has spent a lot of time stumping for Tort Reform this week. His primary example has been firms hit by Asbestos lawsuits.

I wonder if this is because Halliburton subsidiary KBR ended up going into Chapter 11 fighting an Asbestos lawsuit? (More here and here)

Wonder why no one is talking about this…or does the Washington press corps have a short memory?

I stand corrected — CBS MarketWatch does mention Halliburton in an Asbestos story. Right at the very bottom.
