Friend of the little people

With his track record, I kind of expected to see Mr. Spitzer’s name show up too:

Bill Clinton Link in Ethanol Probe
(SAO PAULO, Brazil) — A team from Brazil’s Labor Ministry found “degrading” living conditions for 133 sugarcane workers employed by an ethanol company whose investors include former President Clinton and other high-profile financial players.
At five sites inspected, workers “complained they were suffering from hunger and cold, and all of the locations were overcrowded and with terrible sanitary conditions,” according to a statement issued Friday by Jaqueline Carrijo, who led the inspections last month.

Okay, Clinton is a minor investor in a company that is a minor investor in Brenco. That’s not much of a connection and not much of an indictment of him. But certainly, as in the case of uberprogressives Mark Dayton, Al Franken, and Paul Wellstone, one who makes a big deal about the little folk and “feels your pain” might want to look a little more closely at his business connections.

    I’ve always thought Lady Justice represented politicians and politicos perfectly.

    • Note the blindfold (and copious amounts of hair to cover the ears): to deny any knowledge of having preceived having done anything negative.
    • Notice the uncovered mouth with which to spew useless gross generalities and baseless “facts”.
    • Note the measure…with which to measure the shitloads of money she’ll be making.
    • And of course the sword, to put down any rebellion against her kindred. So cute.

    I think a better version for Spritz is Meese’s*.
    *the plural of ‘mice’?
