This morning I lingered over an article which described how a group of stalwart Republican lobbyists have been hired by Wal-Mart to assert and defend the retailer's right to exploit its workers by denying them mininimum wages, health insurance, unions, and overtime pay.

I wish I could understand the thought process of these men. Do they simply hate poor, brown people? Or do they justifty themeselves with the corrupt mindset of "Well, a job's a job?"

(And for those of you bad readers who call me partisan, I also have this question for Hillary Clinton, who, from all accounts, reads my blog, "What did you say about it or do about it when you were on Wal-Mart's board?")
