"A fellow shopper, unable to fathom the absurdity of Rice’s timing, went up to the Secretary and reportedly shouted, “How dare you shop for shoes while thousands are dying and homeless!” Never one to have her fashion choices questioned, Rice had security PHYSICALLY REMOVE the woman."

The Democrats don't need any more reformers fighting the good fight against immorality and greed; Chomky is an absurd figure as a politician, and to the extent he imagines otherwise, he's an idiot. Neither do they need more wealthy politicos whose hypocrisy is patent to everyone but themselves. They need a sinner who knows what he is and when enough is enough. Anyone who's read this page for awhile knows I'm thinking of the man I shared a beer with on election night 92, and also that we're not going to get someone like that here. But when a member of the administration gets upbraided by someone with enough money to shop at Ferragamo, I know there's a lot of room to operate, if someone's willing to do it.
