In 2008 the UAW's PAC contributed $2 million to politicians. 99% went to Democrats even though 42% of union households voted Republican. In 2010 the UAW's PAC contributed $1.6 million with 100% going to Democrats. The total spent by the UAW PAC in those two years was over $23 million including what was contributed to other PACs which gave solely to Democrats. But don't take my word for it, to Opensecrets.org.

Painfully predictable: Democrats = Good, Republicans = Bad. It's rare to witness someone whose political outlook is so predictably binary.

"His actions in the Battle of the Ganjgal Valley were no less heroic than General Washington crossing the Delaware in 1776." Captain Swenson's actions were heroic and worthy of the Congressional Medal of Honor but comparing them to George Washington's defeat of the British at Trenton is the definition of hyperbole.

I know when I was running this paper, Weston Wamp would be lucky to be delivering it, not writing in it! Standards have certainly dropped.

A very very bad idea. I had to join two unions as a summer employee here during the early 70's. The time spent trying to game the system and plotting how to do the least amount of work for the most amount of pay was rewarded when those two companies moved most of their manufacturing offshore. The guys I worked with weren't bad people per se, they were just provided with too many disincentives to be productive.

At least Bennett is predictable and consistent, not that those two attributes are what a quality political cartoonist would aspire to.

Oh, Clay Bennett is still at the paper? I was thinking he would've got canned with that Johnson guy.

It's Bush's fault!

Oh! I get it. You're comparing opposition to excessive government regulation to cutting down stop signs.
