Unions organizing voters? I’m shocked, shocked I tell you!
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, January 19, 2008

Ed Morrissey points to a story out of Nevada that just made me laugh. Bill Clinton talking to reporters:
Today when my daughter and I were wandering through the hotel, and all these culinary workers were mobbing us telling us they didn’t care what the union told them to do, they were gonna caucus for Hillary.

There was a representative of the organization following along behind us going up to everybody who said that, saying 'if you’re not gonna vote for our guy were gonna give you a schedule tomorrow so you can’t be there.' So, is this the new politics? I haven’t seen anything like that in America in 35 years. So I will say it again – they think they're better than you.
That "representative of the organization" he claims was following them was a member of the Culinary Worker's Union. Obviously their 'guy' isn't Hillary.

Is this the "new politics" Clinton asks? Uh, no, they're about as ancient a brand of politics as the Democrats have available to them. Says Ed:
Wow — who would have thought that unions try to organize voters? Isn't that why people like Bill Clinton have sucked up to them for decades? Having a leading Democrat complain about union pressure on members for political action has to be one of the most clarifying and completely hilarious moments in politics since .... well, since Howard Dean flamed out in Iowa and the Democrats picked John Kerry as the nominee.
I'm still laughing.

Unions threatening their workers to vote someone is absolutely not a healthy sign for Democracy. Hope they’ll change them self.
