another example of how Dems are better people than Repubs

Speaker Elect Pelosi has proposed a severance package for the aides who are losing their jobs as their Republican bosses leave the House. She hopes to give them at least 60 day’s salary so they can make ends meet while they look for employment in the private sector.

That’s a lot more generous than Newt was in 1994 when the shoe was on the other foot. He refused to even consider a severance package for the Democratic aides, when Democratic leaders had pushed hard for a uniform severance package for their committee staffers who had lost their jobs in the Republican revolution.

You're kidding? You mean they aren't elegible for unemployment benefits for six months like everyone else? For shame! You see, I just assumed "well connected" political a-holes would be able to pull strings and get their loyal staffers cushy, corporate oil company jobs. Gullible me.

Then again, oil companies don't employ slackers with no education or marketable skills. Maybe they should concentrate on new careers in selling real estate or broadcasting or liquor distribution.
