I’m sure Jimmy Hoffa is turning over in his grave (whichever stadium it’s under.)
That’s because the clearly-departed but legendary Teamsters leader wouldn’t quite lower himself to the shallow depths Donna DeWitt stooped to this past week.
Donna, or as she is known in adult circles, “De-Twit” decided that taking a whack at a Nikki Haley piñata was exactly the way to show how mature and serious union leaders/members are in this troubled economy. The video of her antics, which took place at an apparent going away party for the outgoing AFL-CIO president in South Carolina, went viral.
Yes, conservatives took full advantage of the moment, not only because they could have, but because they should have. The media has coddled unions for far too long, trying to smooth out the rough edges and make the worst of their members out to be noble representatives of the proletariat. Remember when they stormed the state house in Wisconsin, ready to burn Scott Walker in effigy?
