After the public employees' union, AFSCME, aired commercials in House GOP Whip Eric Cantor's Virginia district attacking him for opposing President Obama's stimulus program, some GOP wise guys put together this send-up of an old AFSCME spot. A tough-sounding guy lays out in obscenity-laced language why public employees are so indispensable to a world of suits.
Cantor apologized (even though he didn't make or distribute the video), but AFSCME doesn't think it's funny. Speaking as a former public employee, the union ought to chill. It is really pretty funny. Plus, it actually does tell AFSCME's story in a way most of its real commercials have never managed to do.
