Oh my god, I love the Shame On Elaine (Chao) website.*
Elaine Chao is the US Secretary of Labor and the wife of Mitch McConnell, one of the sleaziest guys in the US Senate. If there’s a metaphorical intersection of pork barrel spending and nepotism, Mitch McConnell is the rent-a-chump cop who’s directing traffic at that spot.
My favorite part of the Elaine Chao website is the video where she comandeers two SUVs and six security guards (paid for by US taxpayers) to drive to the nail salon before an upcoming John McCain fundraiser.
Holy crap, dudes. Americans are paying for a caravan to the Hot Nails salon in Kentucky because Al Qaeda might hurt the US Secretary of Labor. Unbelievable.
You wonder why you can’t get a seat at the table, punk rockers? Human Resources will never be a respected function when the Chief HR Officer of the United States is getting manicures and acting like the DC trophy wife of a United States senator.
