The AFL-CIO is closed for Columbus Day!?

Earlier today, the Bush campaign issued a formal written threat to the AFL-CIO. Vowing to hold federation President John Sweeney and his organization accountable for the actions of his members, the administration held true to its established practices of respect and encouragement for open and democratic institutions. Employing the "al Qaeda" logic domestically, Bush staffer Marc Racicot compared well organized AFL protests to acts of vandalism and shootings at other Bush campaign headquarters around the country.

But that's the part of the story we all should have seen coming. The fact that my dues help fund these guys' Columbus inspired vacation day is the part that scares the fuck outta me!
