Compare & Contrast: (Texas Politics Edition)

Exhibit A: Those mean, evil payday loan companies with loads of cash to throw at politicians.

Exhibit B: Those plucky, underdog pro-gambling folks who are overcoming long odds to achieve their goal.

Both of these stories ran today on the Chron's pay-site, both describe groups facing large opposition, and both are considered (by many) to have a detrimental effect on the community as a whole.

So why then is one characterized as Satan incarnate while one is considered the Rocky of political groups?

You tell me.
