Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, Bush’s longest-standing Cabinet member, had a birthday yesterday, and we’re pretty sure she bought herself a very expensive cake. Chao also received a present from the Shame on Elaine folks in the form of 25,000 signed letters protesting her record on workers’ rights. The head of the Department of Labor Security refused the letters at the door, saying that they “posed a security threat to the Department.”
Tsk, tsk, Secretary Chao. We’re appalled that you would refuse a gift, especially without opening it first. Aren’t you the least bit curious as to what 25,000 people got you? That’s just rude, girl. Perhaps there are earrings hidden among the papers–that happened to me one birthday, except they were nestled inside a teapot. And they were from Tiffany! And they were diamonds! And they were beauteeful! The point is, I would have had NO IDEA had I not opened my gift. So open your damn present–you just might find something worth keeping inside.
